Usually eaten as a side-dish, guacamole has been a part of traditional Mexican cuisine since the time of the Aztecs. Today, the dip, whose name comes from an Aztec dialect Nahuatl and means guacamole sauce, is a popular side-dish, salad addition and party dip all around the world.

Mostly Avocado

Traditionally, the dish is made by mashing avocados in a mortar and pestle and adding chopped onions, tomatoes, garlic, lemon juice and cumin to it.

Guacamole is informally called guac in the United States and Canada.

Healthy Fruit

Avocados are fruit native to Mexico and Central America and are considered to be a good source for Vitamin K and some types of vitamin B.

The holiday is also called National Guacamole Day in the U.S.

How to Celebrate?

  • With lots of guacamole, of course!
  • Have guacamole for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Have it with your bacon and eggs for breakfast, use it as a spread for your sandwich at lunch, add it your salad at dinner, or if you are like us eat a bowlful of yummy guacamole by itself!
  • Ever tried to make a sweet guacamole? In Sri Lanka, mashed avocado is mixed with milk and sugar or syrup and eaten as a dessert.

Did You Know…

…that avocados are also known as alligator pear owing to the texture of its skin?
