Leticia’s Cocina & Cantina
Leticia’s guacamole is made to order with — if you wish — tomatoes, onions, cilantro and fresh limes, and topped with queso panela and crispy tortilla strips. But for an extra couple of bucks, you can add shrimp or crab, in Abuelo Spicy Sauce. And Leticia’s third location, at Fiesta Henderson, is scheduled to open Oct. 18.

Gonzalez y Gonzalez
The New York Times started an uproar a few years ago when it added peas to guacamole, but this one sounds much more appealing. The king crab guacamole at Gonzalez y Gonzalez is a tableside preparation that also contains pico de gallo and smoked bacon and is served with corn chips and spicy pita.
