As GOP presidential candidate former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is cancelling TV ad time, he used an interview with National Pubic Radio to reveal his wife Columba’s guacamole recipe.

NPR’s report titled, “Finally Revealed: Jeb Bush’s Secret Guacamole Recipe,” teases the recipe by revealing Bush previously spoke about the guacamole at the Iowa Agriculture Summit and sold “Guaca Bowls”in his campaign shop.

“Bush hadn’t given up that recipe … until now,” NPR reveals.

In an interview with NPR’s Steve Inskeep (the bulk of which was about the 2016 presidential campaign, national security and immigration), he said it’s the first time he’s shared the secret to his “mighty fine” guac — though he added he “didn’t give enough specifics” so “it’s still secret squirrel enough.”

According to NPR, Bush’s recipe includes:

Avocados “Make sure they’re not too ripe, but they gotta be ripe enough.”



Jalapeño “rather than chile serrano”

Garlic “not too much”


No lemon and no tomatoes.
