Guacamole looks like a puree, as it is made from crushed avocados. For taste add onions, garlic, tomatoes, various spices. Pairs well with tortillas and corn chips. This appetizer can be added to salads or hamburgers.
The origin of guacamole is associated with the Aztec tribe, who lived until the 16th century, when Latin America had not yet begun to be settled by Spanish and other European colonialists. The Indians cooked a dish exclusively from avocados. Puree was not only eaten, but also used as a medicine.
