Authentic Mexican Guacamole

In the past ten years avocados have been growing in popularity in the United States. Americans are referring to it as “the new bacon”, you can put it on anything. The truth is that avocados have been around for centuries and can be dated back to 10,000BC. The health benefits of avocados are astonishingly good for you. They provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid. 

One of the best recipes with avocado as the main ingredient is Guacamole. My grandma (abuela) taught my mom and now my mom has passed the recipe down to me. Every time I go to a party or make it for friends they can’t get enough. With football season heating up this is a quick, easy and healthy recipe to make for everyone.
