Hear ye, hear ye, fellow guacamole lovers! Do you make mind-blowing guacamole? Then why don’t you put your guac to the test and enter Nachos NY‘s 5th annual Guactacular? On Sunday, May 5 from 2 to 9p.m., at the Bell House in Brooklyn, this epic guacamole showdown will take place. Home cooks will be competing in the afternoon, while food industry pros face off at night. Do you think you’ve got what it takes?

The Coolhaus truck will be there during the afternoon session selling their insanely-good ice cream sandwiches, and Mexicue will be slinging their tacos and sliders at night. The Sporkful will also be present, covering the day’s festivities for their weekly podcast.
