Guacamole, a dip made from mashed avocados, has become a popular dish around the world. But where did it come from? The origins of guacamole can be traced back to the Aztecs, who were known to have mashed avocados and mixed them with tomatoes, onions, and chili peppers. They called it ahuaca-mulli, which translates to avocado sauce in English. The dish was later introduced to the Spaniards during the conquest of Mexico, who then brought it to Europe. 

Over time, guacamole became a staple in Mexican cuisine and eventually made its way to the United States, where it gained widespread popularity in the 20th century. Today, there are many variations of guacamole, with some adding additional ingredients like garlic, lime juice, or cilantro. However, the basic recipe remains the same, with mashed avocados as the main ingredient.
