(Newser) – As Jezebel points out, Jeb Bush likes to talk about his supposedly famous, "secret" guacamole recipe. On Bush's campaign website, you can even buy a Made-in-America "Guaca Bowle" for $75. (The description notes, "Jeb and Columba love whipping up guacamole on Sunday Funday.") Now, in a new interview with NPR, Bush finally reveals his recipe publicly for the first time ... or at least, most of it:

  • Avocados that are "not too ripe, but they gotta be ripe enough"
  • Cilantro
  • Onions

  • Jalapeno "rather than chile serrano," Bush points out
  • Garlic, but "not too much"
  • Do not, however, include any lemon or tomatoes, Bush says
  • Bush notes that he did not include all the "specifics," so as to keep the recipe somewhat "secret squirrel"
Other headline-making guacamole recipes: the NYT's, Chipotle's, and Jack White's. (Read more guacamole stories.)
