Who knew that something so delicious had such few ingredients and simple steps?

The Guaca Guacamole is something that anyone can prepare and is a delicious and inexpensive snack.

The chef who prepared this tasty snack, Anahi Alvizo, is a 2015 graduate from St. Mary’s with a degree in international relations.

Originally from New Braunfels, Texas, she works for a nonprofit organization called Prospera Housing Community Services.

Her career plan is to be an executive director for a nonprofit, a goal that will take her about 10 years to achieve.

The reason why Alvizo loves St. Mary’s so much is because of its hospitality and emphasis on giving back to the community. She also enjoys the small and homey feel that the university offers to its students.

“I am proud to say that I am a Delta Zeta alumna and recipient of the Presidential scholarship. At work, I am part of the American Association of Service Coordinators,” Alvizo says.

“I hope to help the community through my service and to graduate with my master’s degree next year. I also really want a pug, hopefully I can get one for my graduation.”

“My favorite foods are fried chicken, and seafood, especially shrimp. My favorite snack would have to be ice cream, and chocolate,” Alvizo says.

Alvizo first learned to cook when she was 13.

She first learned to prepare eggs, hamburgers and pasta.

Her favorite foods to cook are homemade pasta with alfredo sauce, and egg with chorizo for breakfast.

She began cooking at home more often to eat healthier and make more inexpensive choices.

“I decided to make this plate because it is both healthy and tasty, and it is special to me because it reminds me of my mom and I adore my mother very much.

My mom likes guacamole and loves to eat jalapeños; it is a traditional plate to eat during big basketball games of the Spurs,” Alvizo says.

A special tip that Alvizo has for the people who want to make her famous Guaca Guacamole is to get soft avocados so it is easier to blend with the rest of the ingredients.
