Guacamole is a rich dip made with fresh avocado, enriched with lime juice, salt and various spices. Its history dates back to the Aztecs, the ancient inhabitants of the Mexico until the arrival of Spanish conquistadors.
The word “guacamole”, derives from Ahuaca-Molli, avocado sauce in Nahuatl language. Originally the recipe did not requested to add tomatoes and onions… But like everything, even recipes evolve over time 🙂 .
This avocado sauce is usually used to accompany tortillas and corn tacos, but you could also serve it with grilled chicken or fish or on a crispy bruschetta 🙂 . Have fun with it! 🙂

Start by peeling the fruit and reducing them into puree. For this you can use a fork or a potato masher, taking care not to use the finest wire rack. The guacamole does not have to appear smooth :).
Slice the onions, cut the tomatoes into cubes and crush the garlic and add everything to the purée.
Finally, squeeze half a lime and add the spices, salt and oil of excellent quality.
