Lolita Cocina & Tequila Bar opens on Friday in the former Papa Razzi space at 271 Dartmouth Street in the Back Bay. We’re particularly intrigued by their 200-plus tequilas; to get us in a fiesta-ready mood, the folks at the restaurant were kind enough to share their guacamole and queso recipes with us. Click through for both. They’re clear-cut enough that we might even be able to attempt them after a few tequila shots.
