The last time we stayed at The Cobb Mansion in Virgina City, NV we were able to take a great tour of the home that included some great guacamole. When we got to the kitchen Paul had his molcajete all ready to grind us up a tasty treat.  We loved his recipe so much I wanted to share it on here as well as share how Zo and I make our Molcajete Guacamole.  So really this post just celebrates all things Molecajete!  Enjoy!
