We’ve all been there. It’s Friday night and you want fries and guacamole, but there’s no way to have both. You can spring for Mexican and miss the fried goodness. Or go for fries and lose the avocado. But fear not! Stud Chef Gabe Kennedy shows us how to overcome this problem and get the best of both worlds in each mouthful. Gracias, Gabe.
