In honor of National Guacamole Day coming up this Sunday, September 16, I wanted to celebrate this very important food holiday by sharing with you all a DELICIOUS guacamole recipe from Cocina 214, an award-winning Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurant located in Winter Park and now Daytona Beach.
The name Cocina 214 is a combo of the Spanish word for kitchen, “cocina” and the Dallas area code, “214”. The idea for opening the restaurant developed when two of the owners from Texas missed the Tex-Mex & Mexican food that they had grown up with. They wanted the same authentic, freshly made quality food in Winter Park so they partnered together to create bold flavors dishes – all served in a vibrant, elegant setting.
