Guacamole Chamacuero

Menu Part: 
Sauce
Cuisine Type: 
Latin
Serves: 
1½ cups

This creamy version of a guacamole can be used as a sweet sauce or dip. Christine Seitz, director of culinary for business excellence for Compass Group, says the recipe was inspired by Mexican food maven Diana Kennedy. The recipe was developed to meet the management company’s nutritional guidelines for the whole+sum program. This guacamole is touted as a “super food.” “The combination of the grapes is wonderful not only for flavor, crunch and sweetness but also balancing the fat and calories,” Seitz says.

Ingredients

1 tbsp. chopped onions
¾ cup halved red grapes
2 avocados
¼ cup diced mango
1 tsp. fresh lime juice
1 serrano pepper, minced
1⁄8 tsp. kosher salt 

Steps

1. Finely chop onion and rinse in water. Drain

2. If grapes are large, cut into quarters. Smash avocado. Combine smashed avocado, mango, grapes, lime juice, onions, peppers and salt. Serve cold.

Note: Serrano peppers may be substituted with jalapeño peppers.

To keep staff motivated, we locked them in a room together. As part of a midsemester training session, we formed work groups and sent them to a local Escape Room to see which team could play the game together most effectively and escape first. Not only was this training a great team-building experience, but it supported a local new business and gave our staff a memorable experience.
