The Best Guacamole Recipes
September 18, 2019 by Fernanda Jacquez

Guacamole. A pillar of Mexican food, the glue that holds together the perfect meal. A staple in our lives and most likely, yours as well. We’re about to get very controversial as we discuss the elements of the perfect guacamole. 

First, let us take you back in time. Guacamole was first eaten by the Aztecs in the 16th-century and was made purely of avocado. Originally called Āhuacamolli, meaning “avocado sauce”, the word developed into what we now know as guacamole. The traditional dish began to develop with the additions of smashed tomato and avocado, giving it complexity and additional flavor. 

The guacamole that we know today has much more complexity, dynamics, and more ingredients. Although some people like it plain and simple with the main ingredients, at Tacos & Beer, we like to add some additional flair, we’ll let the people decide. 

Here are some guacamole recipes that we’re currently loving:
