The history of guacamole dates back to the Aztec civilization

 

Its name comes from ‘ahuacamolli,’ a combination of the words ‘ahuacatl’ (avocado) and ‘molli’ (sauce), in Nahuatl

 

To mash the fruit, you use a traditional Mexican molcajete (a kind of mortar)

 

Base ingredients: avocado, salt, pepper, and cilantro

 

The most common side orders are: nachos and tortillas
