Guacamole Dip History
The Aztecs invented it.
When the Spaniards encountered the Aztec empire back in
the 1500s, the locals were making a sauce called ahuaca-mulli,
which means "avocado-mixture." The dish was prepared by mashing avocados,
sometimes with tomatoes and onions, hot peppers
and a touch of cilantro.
The Spanish brought what they could back to Spain.
Unfortunately avocados don't grow particularly well
Sailors and travelers ate various forms of the stuff,
notably the English who made avocado paste, called it "midshipman's butter,"
The word "avocado" descends linguistically from the
ancient Nahuatl lenguage word ahuacatl,
Most American avocados come from California, where there over 6,000 avocado
groves dot the southern part of the state. Most of those avocados are of the
Hass variety; Florida avocados are larger, more
avocados are grown in Mexico, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Spain, Israel,
South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.
Modern guacamole comes in many forms. In some taquerias, it's large
chunks of barely-cut avocado, in others it's a paste with a lively mixture
of tomatoes, onions, and cilantro.
Guacamole dates back to the Aztecs - The Aztecs referred to guacamole
as ahuaca-mulli which translates roughly to avocado sauce or avocado mixture.
The Aztecs believed the avocado to be an aphrodisiac.
the avocado has the highest fat content of any fruit.
The Aztecs had a very low fat diet compared with today's standards.
