Clearly tortilla chips are the most popular pairing because they are salty, crispy and the perfect way to scoop up guacamole.

However, chips are not the only thing to serve with guacamole.  It is also great when paired with fresh raw veggies or crackers. Or serve it as a topping for toast, quesadillas, burritos, tacos or fajitas.

Or, pair it with some sour dough bread for a refreshing sourdough guacamole sandwich.

What is the history of guacamole?

Guacamole is essentially a mix of mashed avocado and spices. The avocado finds its origins in South Central Mexico, where it grows naturally.

This reason led to the conclusion that guacamole was created by the Aztecs who inhabited that region.

There are a large number of health benefits of guacamole . It contains many natural fats and nutrients in addition to being readily available.

In fact, the nutritious value of homemade guacamole is quite high.

It is a high source of carbs and healthy fats. The properties that come from avocados may help with cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

It is also a great source of sodium and potassium which can work against developing hypertension and high blood pressure.

Additionally, guacamole is an excellent source of fiber and vitamins. One serving of guacamole can serve as a quarter of your daily recommended fiber intake. This helps to lower cholesterol and blood sugar as well.

Of course, these specifics were unknown to the Aztecs and Spaniards, but these people were aware that there were health benefits. In fact, many believed that the dish and avocados, in general, were aphrodisiacs.

The word for guacamole is also related to the Aztec word for avocado “ahu?catl”. “Ahuacamolli” is the Aztec name for guacamole. It is a compound of the Aztec word for guacamole and the word for “sauce.”
