What's the best thing to pair with guacamole?

Did you have toast, Deviled eggs, or veggie patties in mind?

If you're a guacamole aficionado, you'll know there are many healthy pairings with guacamole, and it's more than a dip for your chips. You may love it so much that you even use it at every meal. Everything from zucchini fritters to stuffed mushrooms, a dollop of yummy guacamole is the cherry on top.

Before the 16th century, Aztecs had the brilliant idea of mashing avocados into a paste. Realizing that this "ahuaca-mulli" or "avocado sauce" made their tortillas and other foods taste better, its popularity increased. The fact that the Aztecs thought guacamole to have aphrodisiac properties contributed further to the spread of its popularity. When Spaniards discovered this delicious dish, they brought the recipe as they continued to explore the world. They also started modifying the recipe. However, it was difficult for the Spaniards to cultivate avocados in Spain at that time, and they even went as far as finding a substitute for it, but to no avail. 

Luckily for us, we can make guacamole easily at home now. If you do, make sure it's presented well before you serve it to friends and family with this Mario Cioni® Large Sculpted Oval Bowl. Call us to order today!
