The Aztecs invented guacamole more than 700 years ago, and their word for it was ahuacamolli, meaning “avocado sauce.” In the 1500s, Spaniards found that name a bit hard to pronounce and replaced it with the word we use today: guacamole. So when you say “guacamole,” you’re already speaking Spanish! Just make sure you’re pronouncing it correctly: waka-MOH-lay.
