If you've ever been known to get behind a taco, burrito, or chips from Chipotle Mexican Grill, then you've probably enjoyed some of the chain's signature spicy guacamole. We went into the kitchen with Chipotle to learn exactly how they make their legendary avocado dip. The secret? A longtime recipe that comes courtesy of founder (and classically trained chef) Steve Ells. Watch and learn, then get the recipe when you keep reading.
With the Super Bowl less than a week away, it's time to start prepping for your game-day party — especially now that we know which teams will be playing for the win. If you're a 49ers fan — which, as San Franciscans, we hope you are! — then you might want to listen up! While you can prep for your tailgating soiree with decorations like red-and-gold utensils, there's plenty of 49ers kitchen gear (think cheese boards and wine stoppers) to choose from. Here, we've put together all the items you need to embrace the football festivities.
What's perfect for your Super Bowl spread, and yet far from indulgent? These za'atar and cumin-spiced roasted chickpeas. Additionally, they're an excellent garnish for soups and salads, come together with a minimal of effort, are easy to transport, and are just plain delicious.
If this seems like a lot of blustery praise, don't be put off. Even if you find they're not your cup of tea you'll be out a mere few dollars (chickpeas are cheap!) aside from the initial purchase of tangy herbal za'atar and earthy cumin seeds (use extra za'atar in this soothing soup that's swirled with za'atar oil).
Not feeling the Mediterranean flavor profile? Think of this recipe as more of a blueprint than a set in stone prescription — feel free to sub out spice blends as you please, the proportions listed below are intended as a mere jumping off point.

Biting Winter weather got you down? Warm up with a bowl of soul-soothing roasted carrot soup from GraceDickinson.The beauty of a good soup is that you need only a few steps for it to turn out tasty. Often, you’ll also only need one pan, though this soup requires a step in the oven that will call for two. Roasting the carrots here really draws out their flavor, which gives this orange bowl of butter a sweet, earthy flavor. A touch of thyme draws back memories of Thanksgiving all over again, while ginger spices things up to keep your body extra warm.

As cheese lovers, we tasted as many as we could spot, and discovered nine that are so memorable, we guarantee they're worth hunting down.
Last week saw the premiere of The Taste, ABC's food reality TV show starring judges Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson, Ludo Lefebvre, and Brian Malarkey. What sets the new show, being billed as "a cooking competition unlike any other," apart from other food reality TV shows? PopSugar's Michelle Manning sat down with judges (and executive producers) Bourdain and Lawson to find out.
- Olive oil, salt, and pepper: Give cottage cheese the Cal-Med treatment with a drizzle of peppery Tuscan olive oil, flaky sea salt, and freshly ground black pepper. In Summer, during peak tomato season, insert fresh heirloom slices.
