Guacamole is a family favorite and originates from Mexico.
Mexican dishes are made almost daily in my home and guacamole always has been a favorite of ours. Guac (nickname in North America) can be eaten any time of day by my family. Sometimes my husband even includes it with his breakfast. That is how much he loves avocados!
Guacamole is so simple to make and makes any meal more luxurious! It is creamy and healthy and can be eaten so many ways. Our family’s favorite is slapped onto a corn tortilla! Yummy. My favorite is of course with chips and don’t forget the salsa.
I wanted to share with you the same recipe I have been using since I was a teenager and lived with my Parents. My beautiful Mama had me make it on her molcajete, which is a Mexican version of a mortar and pestle.
This recipe can be modified as you wish. Enjoy.
