Did someone say GUACAMOLE???  This Mexican dish has become a more common part of American cuisine. I’m sure there are many variations used today than the Aztec culture intended.

Guacamole has its roots in Aztec culture; the native people would mash the plentiful avocados with a mortar and pestle called a molcajete. They would add tomatoes and salt to complement the avocado. The most common variety is consisted to be creamy, referred to as guacamole. Check out my recipe to see the ingredients selected for this delicious dip.
