Guacamole, a dip made from avocado, is originally from Mexico. The name is derived from 2 Aztec words - ahuacatl (avocado) and molli (sauce). The trick to perfect guacamole is using good avocados. Check for ripeness by gently pressing the outside of the avocado. If there is no give, the avocado is not ripe yet and will nottaste good. If there is a little give, the avocado is ripe. If there is a lot of give, the avocado may be past ripe and not good. In this case, taste test first before using. my favorite Get more recipe free.
