Guacamole is a delicious and iconic dip and condiment that has become increasingly popular in recent years. It is a versatile food that can be enjoyed as a dip, a spread, or a topping on various dishes.

At SOHO TACO, we take pride in our guacamole and its rich history. In this blog post, we will explore the origins of guacamole and how we use the best ingredients and time-honored techniques to create this delicious dip.

Origins of Guacamole

Guacamole’s origins can be traced back to the Aztecs in Mexico. The word “guacamole” comes from two Aztec words, “ahuacatl” (meaning avocado) and “molli” (meaning sauce). The Aztecs would mash avocados and mix them with tomatoes, onions, and chili peppers to create a dip that they would serve with their meals.

When the Spanish conquered Mexico in the 16th century, they adopted the Aztecs’ guacamole recipe and introduced it to Europe. From there, it spread to other parts of the world, and today, it is enjoyed in various forms around the globe.

At SOHO TACO, we pay homage to the rich history of guacamole by using traditional ingredients and techniques in our recipe. Our guacamole is made fresh daily, and we use only the best ingredients to create a dip that is creamy, flavorful, and packed with nutrients.

Best Ingredients and Time-Honored Techniques

The key to making great guacamole is using ripe avocados. We carefully select avocados that are perfectly ripe and ready to be mashed. We also use fresh lime juice to prevent the avocados from browning and to add a bright, tangy flavor to the dip.

We add diced tomatoes, onions, and (sometimes) jalapeño peppers to our guacamole for extra flavor and texture. These ingredients are finely chopped to create a smooth and creamy dip that is packed with flavor.

To finish the guacamole, we add a pinch of salt and cilantro. The salt brings out the flavors of the other ingredients, while the cilantro adds a fresh, herbaceous note to the dip.

Our guacamole is made using a molcajete, a traditional Mexican mortar and pestle made from volcanic rock. This time-honored technique allows us to create a dip that has a smooth, creamy texture, while still retaining some of the chunky bits of avocado and other ingredients.

We take great care in preparing our guacamole, and we believe that our commitment to using the best ingredients and time-honored techniques is what sets us apart from other taco catering companies.
