GUAC OFF 2009 -- Winners

The Food Network staff Guac Off '09 stretched across two states and in the end, two were left standing. Without further fanfare, we want to announce our two winners and share some photos.

Angela Moore (NYC) and Sneha Ghule (Knoxville) walked away with the green (and by that, we mean empty guacamole bowls to wash).

( Yes. Those chips are in a giant, styrofoam avocado-half bowl. Thanks, Emeril!)
