In the previous post Smokestack wrote about the excellent pairing of Benin’s Orchestre Poly-Rythmo and a cold beer. Well I couldn’t help but follow that up with another great combo – Guacamole Con Chile. Sounds simple enough. But I can’t tell you how many times I’ve eaten someone’s guacamole and there’s no chile in there. Criminal! So here we have Chicken Y Su Comandos (who else would sing a song just about guacamole?) of Mexico’s Yucatan to set everyone straight. In fact it’s so direct and to the point the only words to the song are “gauacamolito con chile”. Nothing wrong with that. However, what really makes this song so incredibly tasty is that they paired their usual tropical guitar cumbia sounds with marimba. Without fail every time I hear this song it has me craving tortillas, frijoles, pollo asado… and of course a cold beer. I’m off to the fridge. ¡Bien provecho!
