This easy to make Authentic Guacamole recipe is made with simple to find fresh organic ingredients that will scream fresh and flavorful to all your family and friends. Plus an easy to follow guide to keeping your fresh Guacamole from browning.Making delicious fresh Guacamole dates back to the ancient Aztecs; the Guacamole then was very similar to what you might make in your kitchen in this day and age. The more traditional Homemade Guacamole made by the ancient Aztecs combined fresh ingredients such as Avocados, a sauce made from vine-ripened tomatoes, green Mexican chiles, and a little bit of sea salt.
Did you know,  that the Aztecs believed the avocado fruit to be an aphrodisiac; maybe that might explain why the avocado was so popular in the Aztec culture. Another reason for the popularity of the fruit may also have to do with the fact that the avocado has the highest fat content of any fruit. The Aztecs had a very Low-fat diet compared with today’s standards, so it makes perfect sense to use the avocado fruit to supplement fats into their food.

 

 

Fun Facts

  • Aztecs were first found creating Guacamole with a basalt mortar and pestle in Mexico around the 14th-16th centuries.
  • The first European written account of guacamole was in 1518; the aristocrats and wealthy widely used the sauce.
  • The British dubbed the mixture “midshipman’s butter,” after tasting the flimsy concoction the Spanish sailors tried to recreate from their Mexican travels.
  • The Hass family planted their first avocado tree in 1920 and began exporting avocados
  • Modern-day guacamole now has its national food holiday coinciding with Mexican Independence Day on September 16.

Frequently asked questions

  1. What is Molcajete? A molcajete and tejolote are stone tools, the traditional Mexican version of the mortar and pestle. They are commonly used for making fresh salsas and guacamole. 
  2. I don’t have a Molcajete or Mortar and pestle; what can I use instead? I have used a plain potato masher or heavy-duty fork in that situation, and it works great.
  3. Can I use Florida Avocados instead of Hass Avocados? The deciding factor should come down to taste and texture. If you want an avocado, you can mash up perfectly, like for guacamole, then go for the Hass versus Florida Avocado.
  4. How do I choose the right Avacado for the recipe? It is important to choose an avocado that is not too firm, or too soft. Make sure you give it gentle squeeze at the market before buying it. There should be a little bit of leeway to it, but it shouldn’t feel mushy or soft. If it doesn’t have any leeway at all, then it is probably a little too firm. 
  5. Can I use garlic powder instead of fresh minced garlic? You can, but the fresh garlic has a much better flavor and is more authentic tasting in the recipe.
  6. I hate cilantro it tastes like soap can I omit it? Cilantro does not agree with everyone, and please feel free to skip if you have a reaction to the taste.
  7. Can I use dried cilantro in place of the fresh? Please do not as it tastes nothing like fresh and will ruin the recipe.

Pro Tips for keeping the Guacamole from browning

  1. Place the pits of the Avacado in the finished Guacamole until ready to serve.
  2. Then brush the surface of the Guacamole lightly but thoroughly with more fresh lime juice.
  3. Place Guacamole in an air-tight container, before placing the lid on –see step 4
  4. Use plastic wrap to cover the surface by gently pushing down on the plastic wrap until it seals to the top of the guacamole.
  5. Place a lid on the air-tight container and store for 1-2 days time.

 

Notes: 

Guacamole is best when made and served right away. The above tips will help but eating immediately will produce the best results when it comes to this recipe.
