Guacamole

Guacamole is an avocado-based dip which originated in Mexico. It is traditionally made by mashing ripe avocados with a molcajete (pestle and mortar) with lime juice and salt. Some recipes call for tomatoes, coriander, garlic and seasonings.

History
Guacamole was made by the Aztecs as early as the 1500s. 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 [ɡwakaˈmole], in American English /ˌɡwɑːkəˈmoʊliː/, and in British English sometimes /ˌɡwækəˈmoʊliː/.

Guasacaca
Thinner and more acidic, this is a Venezuelan sauce based on avocado but made with vinegar, and is used over parrillas (grilled food), arepas, empanadas and any other dish.  It is common to make the guasacaca with red chili peppers instead of tomato and jalapeno, as a hot sauce is frequently offered in a different container.

Commercial guacamole
Prepared and fresh guacamoles are available in stores, often available refrigerated.  The non-fresh guacamole that is most like fresh is preserved by freezing or sometimes high pressure packaging.  Other non-fresh preparations need higher levels of fillers and artificial preservatives to be shelf stable.
