This popular Mexican dip is internationally recognized, and it is believed to be a legacy of the Aztecs. It takes little prep-time and the ingredients are easy to find during all seasons. Guacamole is a simple dish with a big power to bring everyone together, something we miss due to the current pandemic. The name of this dip comes from a combination of the Spanish word for avocado, “aguacate,” which in turn comes from the Nahuatl word “āhuacatl”. The second part of the word “mole” comes from another Nahuatl word: Moli (meaning sauce). So, put the two words together and you get “Ahuacalt-moli.” You can enjoy Guacamole at home during Cinco de Mayo, or during any other day because it is a very healthy dip. If you are trying to cut calories, you can replace the chips with celery stalks or carrots and skip the Margarita that is usually present when guacamole is served.

2 ripe avocados
2 lemons, or to taste
1 Jalapeño chopped
1/2 red onion chopped
1 tomato (optional)
Salt to taste

Peel and remove the pit of the avocados. In a recipient, crush the avocados making a pure. 
Finely chop the cilantro, jalapeño, and tomato.
Season with the lemon juice and salt to taste.
Leave some cilantro to garnish.
