If you guessed a special dish made of avocado, cilantro, onion, tomato, and more, then holy guacamole! You just might be right! Yes, this month's recipe is none other than guacamole!
The history behind guacamole dates back to the 1500s. Created by the Aztec empire, this famous dish was referred to as ahuaca-mulli, which translates to avocado-sauce or avocado mixture. What a fitting name! And did you know that September 16th is the unofficial holiday for this delicious recipe? Another important fact, it's also Mexico's Independence Day!
Here's what you'll need to bring this to your table:
- 2 Large Avocados
- 1/2 Cup of Spanish Onions (Diced)
- 1 Cup of Tomatoes (Diced)
- 1 Tablespoon of Serrano Chillies (Minced)
- 1 Tablespoon of Cilantro (Roughly Chopped)
- 1 Tablespoon of Lime Juice
- 1 Teaspoon of Salt
Slice the avocados in half, remove the pits, and scoop the avocado flesh into a large bowl. Mash the avocados.
Add in the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine.
Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!
