Guacamole con Tortillas Tostadas

a mexican classic


Berlin, 13.01.2016

Guacamole is most probably the most popular and beloved Mexican recipes worldwide which unlike Nachos or Chili con Carne, Guacamole is 100% authentic Mexican food.

One of the most popular and beloved dips around the world is guacamole which, unlike nachos or chili con carne, is 100% authentic Mexican. The word Guacamole comes from the word in Náhuatl language “ahuacamolli” which is made by the words “ahuacátl” (Avocado or Aguacate in Spanish) and Molli (Sauce or Salsa / Mole in Spanish).

There is no traditional recipe for guacamole; you can find a slightly different way to do it depending on the region of Mexico you are. Guacamole and totopos (the Mexican word for tortilla chips) are a great snack while you are drinking a beer or mezcal. However, we´ve found that Spanish red wine is also a great combination (I have accompanied with Amézola de la Mora or Palacio Quemado). In Mexico would also use guacamole as a Salsa (sauce) for tacos, flautas (fried tacos), quesadillas or as a side dish for steaks.

I have to say that I eat much more guacamole now that I am living in Germany. Most of my friends want me to make guacamole when we cook together but in my family we don´t use to make guacamole, we would rather add avocado to our tacos or simply eat a taco with avocado and salt as a snack.

In this blog, I will be presenting different recipes to make guacamole, some that you can find in Mexico and others that I've learned from my non-Mexican friends. This time, I will show you my favorite guacamole recipe, it may not be the most traditional as I employed some Italian olive oil but it is delicious and may be the most simple guacamole recipe I've made.
