Guacamole originated in southern Mexico. The Aztecs invented guacamole using local ingredients: avocados, tomatoes, chiles, and salt. In the 16th century, the Spanish put their own spin on the recipe by adding European flavors like onion, lime, and cilantro. They also cut tortillas into strips and fried them in lard to create edible utensils for dipping in their guacamole … and guac’s best friend, the chip, was born!
