Homemade guacamole

This sauce so easy to prepare and that has conquered so many people (is one of the most adept) is of Aztec origin, and its name, which is originally "ahuacamolli" in Nahuatl, is a combination of the words "ahuacatl" and "molli" which means, respectively, "avocado" and "mole" or "salsa".

Unlike the industrial guacamoles that are usually found in supermarkets, authentic guacamole does not have cheese, milk, or any other milk, since these are only used in order to use less avocado, which makes the flavor lose authenticity and the result is of very low quality (especially at a nutritional level).

Another strength of this sauce is, in addition to the richness of its ingredients, the fact that they are consumed raw, which allows us to benefit from 100% of the nutrients they contain.

Thus, being made mainly of avocado , it is rich in complex carbohydrates (which provide energy and have satiating power), lecithin , glutathione (antioxidant), fiber , omega 9 , vitamins E and group B ( B6 and B9 or folic acid ) , calcium , copper , iron , magnesium and potassium .

In addition, by bringing tomatoes and onions , we also provide lycopene , alliin , flavonoids , vitamins A and C , sulfur , phosphorus , sodium and, in smaller amounts, manganese , selenium and zinc .

Below you can see what ingredients you need and the steps to follow to make a homemade guacamole with an ideal flavor.
