Happy Guacamole Day!

If you love avocados, it’s only natural for you to love guacamole.  Guacamole was first served by the Aztecs in Mexico during the 16th century.  It’s a staple in modern Mexican American cuisine.  This tasty menu item can be used as a dip, condiment or creamy topping.

Guacamole is created by mashing ripe avocados and served as a spread or a dip.  Because avocados don’t have a definable taste, you would add salt and lime juice (lime juice keeps the fruit from browning) to give it a sassy flavor.

Avocados are loaded with healthy fats, fiber, and important nutrients and is considered to be a super-food.
