–The Best–

This dip with universal fame, consists of mashed avocado, which is mixed with small chunks of tomato, onion, serrano pepper and more ingredients ; that give as a result an exquisite dip.

– The guacamole is not one of the best dips that we have tried.

Is the best dip that we have tried in our lives!

Although to be honest the guacamole should not be seen nor treated as a dip or as a
salsa , but as a “work of art" because that’s what it is.

The word guacamole sounds strange and that’s because it comes from the Nahuatl ahuacatl (avocado) + molli (salsa) = ahuacatlmolli; with the passage of time the word derived to guacamole. Regarding to the dip’s history it is believed that the recipe was originated by the Incas who passed it down to the Mexicas . This fact is not proven, but the important thing is that now we all have the recipe.

The guacamole goes with any type of Mexican food or non Mexican food (is not a problem). Although it is a accustom to eat it with snacks and
appetizers like: tortilla chips , nachos, sincronizadas , chips, bread , quesadillas , etc.
