Now You Can Make Jeb Bush's Famous Guacamole

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. (More guacamole stories.)
