Enjoy this quick and easy guacamole recipe with celery sticks, carrots, cucumber slices or raw flax crackers. My son, Mitchel, who is now 12 this year (2012) makes the best guacamole recipe I have ever tasted. When the avocados are beginning to turn he makes up a big batch. He and Carter (10 years) love to use it as a dressing on on their salads. He is so careful to take his time making sure it tastes just right. It is so fun to have a child who enjoys creating fresh recipes for others and himself to enjoy. I know his foods always tastes so amazing because he adds so much love!

History of Guacamole:
Of Aztec origin, guacamole was originally made by mashing ripe avocados, with a molcajete (mortar and pestle) and adding tomatoes and salt. After the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors, guacamole became popular in Spain.

The name comes from an Aztec dialect via Nahuatl āhuacamolli, from āhuacatl (=”avocado”) + molli (=”sauce”). In Spanish it is pronounced [ɣʷakaˈmole], in American English /ˌɡwɑːkəˈmoʊliː/, and in British English sometimes /ˌɡwækəˈmoʊliː/.
