A while ago I felt like some good guacamole, so I called my grandmother in Mexico: ¨Hey Abuela, como estas? Oye, me podrias dar la receta de tu guacamole?" ( I asked for her recipe, which she gave me). And as she talked to me about many, many (many) things, I began to draw some characters for the recipe, and when the call was over, I realized that I had drawn every ingredient I needed for my guacamole! After that I thought, Wouldn't it be cool if they all had a fight in an old cantina? So I immediately started to create this.

Five colors, I hope you enjoy it.


Some detail!



Plus: There's an original recipe.

More detail here!

Amazing background and the avocados look fantastic too! At first I thought the one on the left was throwing his pit slingshot style, hehe. The vegetables really pop out in a great way ...really amazing walmazan, I'm once again so impressed!

PS.I love guacamole

Love this! I had an avocado tree at my house in Bolivia a couple years ago. I could have used the recipe.

I really like this. I LOVE guacamole. I actually already have a guacamole shirt, believe it or not. I think this might be better received in a different theme, though. It doesn't really scream vintage to me either, but I still like it.

What he said.

Seriously, this is great. That backround is especially mind blowing. There's a lot of depth there and it shows true talent that you can do something like that without using gradients. Just awesome

Re: Holy Guacamole!


So, I don't have any shirts with recipes on them. I also don't have any shirts with food on them (that has not been put there the old fashioned way!).
I'm sitting at my desk at work, looking at this shirt, and trying to figure out why I like it so much. I think I've finally come to a conclusion; I have no idea.
I want this shirt. I need it, like the desert needs the rain. This shirt makes happy.

Wonderful job!

(it's a slightly different recipe than I use for guac- I use a little more lime, among other things, but I'm definitely going to mix some up for the weekend! )

Started reading this with the "avacado, mashed," then followed the arrow to find him in the picture. And saw that the avacado is about to 'mash' the tomato. Then I thought it would be funny if they wre trying to do to each other what the recipe called for. So, for example, the tomato was trying to mash the avacado while he tried to chop the tomato.
I still think that would be funny, but as I thought about it more, I realized you'd end up with a lot of knives which sort of wrecks the whole spontaneous bar-fight scene.

Anyway, it's a fun shirt regardless ^_^

I thought the same. So, that's what makes it vintage. :D
I can't afford avocados in china. They're really rare so really expensive, so have to wait a year and a half to use the recipe, but hope to buy the shirt so I don't forget it :D
Walz, I think it's cool that you designed it while talking to your grandma! Tell her thank you for us!

I make a similar salsa recipe, except I use 4 to 5 cloves of garlic and switched from jalapeños to habaneros. If anybody wants to make that recipe but doesn't have a cast iron skillet or gas stove, you can char everything under a broiler, or line a regular skillet with tin foil.

Yeah, I grew habaneros this summer and really fell in love with the flavor. Anytime I can try a new (preferably mexican) recipe, I jump at the chance. I made cochinita pibil for the first time this week. I wish I would have tried that recipe sooner.

I'm 3rd generation Mexican-American. My family moved to Los Angeles in the 1930's. There's a huge Latin American population in LA, so although I've never really been further than TJ, I grew up being exposed to some of the culture and the flavors.

I wish the vegetables here looked more like the actual vegetables (especially the jalapeno) rather than using labels and arrows to point out what's what.
I dunno. Maybe it's just that I'm not into guacamole.

That looks about as much as a jalapeno with arms and legs and a big ol' smile can. And I like that it's a fairly unconventional take since it doesn't have to stem on top.
