Guacamole is a simple and quick Avocado based dip that goes well with pretty much everything-bread, toast, veggie sticks.

History of Guacamole:

It is said that when avocados reached Mexico somewhere around the 1500s. The Aztecs who were the natives there turned the fruit into Guacamole.

Originally Guacamole was made with only avocado and sea salt. It got its present-day name from the Nahuatl word-āhuacamolli which literally translates to “avocado sauce”. The Aztecs believed it to be a natural aphrodisiac thus gaining more importance.

Gradually more people became aware of this dish and it became a part of daily foods for many.
