Tortilla with guacamole

Mexican sauce based on avocado and spices actually means Guacamole. Аhuacamōlli, from āhuacatl-avocado and mōlli-sauce, this name comes from the Aztec languages.

Many people confuse and call avocado sauce “glukomolie”, this is wrong. Another interesting fact about the avocado itself: the Aztecs used to consider it an aphrodisiac.

Moreover, due to its resemblance to male testicles, there was a ban on collecting it with female hands. It may be a legend, but avocados definitely have a lot of benefits.

Guacamole with nachos

Since guacamole sauce is primarily a dip sauce, it is mainly eaten with nachos and chips. It is also served with French fries or simply spread on pita bread.

In Mexico, of course, these are corn tortillas, in which all kinds of fillings are wrapped and topped with sauce. It is also added to burritos, fried meat or chicken.

Seafood and fish are also combined with guacamole sauce and are greatly transformed by the way. And of course, the famous Mexican quesadilla is no good without guacamole.
