Guacamole, often referred to simply as “avocado sauce” in some contexts, is a traditional Mexican sauce that has gained international fame for its creamy texture and vibrant flavor. The name “guacamole” derives from the Nahuatl words “āhuacamolli,” which translate to “avocado sauce” or “avocado concoction.” Originally made by the Aztecs, this sauce has been a staple in Mexican cuisine for centuries. Guacamole is traditionally served with tortilla chips, tacos, and burritos, but its use has expanded globally to include a variety of dishes, from sandwiches and salads to being a garnish for grilled meats and fish.

  • Cut the avocados in half and remove the pit. Scoop out the flesh with a spoon and place it in a mixing bowl.
  • Use a fork or potato masher to mash the avocado to your desired consistency. Some prefer a smoother guacamole, while others like it chunky.
  • Immediately add the lime juice and salt to the mashed avocado. The lime juice adds flavor and helps prevent the avocado from browning.
  • Stir in the chopped cilantro, finely chopped red onion, minced jalapeño (or serrano chili), and minced garlic. If using, add the diced tomatoes last to avoid making the guacamole too watery.
  • Taste and adjust the seasonings, adding more salt or lime juice if needed.
  • Guacamole is best served fresh, at room temperature, to enjoy its full flavor.

Storage Tips

Guacamole tends to brown quickly due to the oxidation of avocados. To store, place plastic wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Adding a layer of lime juice on top before covering can also help prevent browning.

Useful Properties of the Main Ingredient

Avocados are highly nutritious, offering a rich source of vitamins (C, E, K, and B-6), minerals, fiber, and heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. They contain more potassium than bananas and are known for their anti-inflammatory properties.
