Did you know that the Aztecs invented guacamole in the 16th century?
Guacamole is a Mexican sauce of pre-Hispanic origin. The Mexica used to call it “ahuacamolli”. This name comes from the words ahuacatl (avocado) and molli (mole) and could be translated as “avocado mole.”
Before the arrival of the colonists, guacamole consisted of avocados, tomatoes, and chiles, which were mashed in molcajetes and eaten. But with the conquest, the recipe was transformed.
Today, the most common recipe includes onion, garlic, salt, and lime juice, but why settle for the ordinary?
