This is a very traditional dish from Mexico, dating back hundreds of years to its origin in Aztec culture. Its name comes from a combination of the native Nahuatl words ahuacatl (avocado) and mulli (sauce). With Spanish influence in the 16th century, this evolved to guacamole. Guacamole is an oft-requested favorite of our guests and can be enjoyed as an appetizer with chips or as a side to complement other Mexican dishes such as burritos, enchiladas, and more.
It is rich in nutrients – with the avocado providing lots of healthy monounsaturated fat – though most people love it for its rich flavor, creamy texture, and zing of spice. So grab a group of friends, a bag of blue corn tortillas chips, and the following recipe – and dig in! Serves 8 – 10 Ingredients: • 5 ripe avocados
2 cloves of garlic minced • 3 tomatoes • ½ onion, finely chopped • 1 serrano chile, chopped w/ seeds removed • ½ bunch of cilantro • 2 limes • ½ tsp of salt • ½ tsp olive oil
Directions: • Peel and mash avocados in a medium serving bowl. If you want to get authentic, then use a molcajete, a specialized mortar made of volcanic stone that’s perfect for authentic guacamole. • Add chopped onion, tomato, garlic, serrano chile, and cilantro and mix. • Season with salt and lime and add olive oil. Continue to mix to blend flavors. • Serve with tortilla chips.
