Hidden Genius Project Guacamole Cook-Off

Chowhound welcomed the Hidden Genius Project into our test kitchen for a guacamole throwdown and content production challenge—the teams had to make guacamole from scratch and produce an image asset for the recipe.

The Hidden Genius Project trains and mentors black male youth in technology creation, entrepreneurship, and leadership skills to transform their lives and communities.

The highly motivated participants brought their A game that blew our minds and satisfied our appetites. Out of the twelve participant teams, here are the four that stood the most:


This team thought outside the box and used the avocado skin as part of the plating.


This team's guacamole game was on point! Great taste, and very neatly plated.


The originality of this team's name caught our attention followed by a delicious chunky style guacamole.

The Guac'ers

This team was not afraid to get in there and mashed the avocado yielding a silky and mouthwatering guac!

Congratulations to all members of the Hidden Genius Project! It is reassuring to see that our future is in hands of such hard-working, smart, kind, and fun generation!
