It is national Guacamole day so yes we are making guacamole. It takes 5-10 minutes to make depend on how ripe the Avocados are. I will be honest with you, guacamole is all up to taste. I personally like mine with a lot of lemon and salt, but you may not. Do a little at a time, mix and taste as you work with chips. Do not double dip if feeding other people. If it is just for yourself, well have at it.
Avocados were first cultivated in South Central Mexico around 10,000 years ago. In the early 1900s, avocados frequently went by the name alligator pear. In the 1697 book, A New Voyage Round the World, the first known description of a guacamole recipe (though not known by that name) was by English privateer and naturalist William Dampier, who in his visit to Central America during one of his circumnavigations, noted a native preparation made of grinding together avocados, sugar, and lime juice.
Guacamole has increased avocado sales in the U.S., especially on Super Bowl Sunday and Cinco de Mayo. The rising consumption of guacamole is most likely due to the U.S. government lifting a ban on avocado imports in the 1990s and the growth of the U.S. Latino population
Guacamole is great as a dip as well as a topping for Mexican dishes.
