The Aztecs invented guacamole back in the 14th century. They called guacamole ahuacamolli, a combination of their words for avocado and sauce. When the Spanish started enjoying the Aztec dip a couple hundred years later, they understandably found this word a bit difficult to pronounce. They began referring to it as“guacamole”, which sounds a little like ahuacamolli and a lot like the Spanish word for avocado, aguacate.
