Dating back to the Aztec Empire of the 1500s, avocados have a fierce presence in history. It’s no wonder when you consider the several health benefits this palm-sized fruit provides. However, as the number one Mexican restaurant in Manchester, the team from Mi Jalisco also recognizes the satisfyingly delicious aspect as well.
The combination of freshly mashed avocado, tomato, fresh cilantro, lime juice, and spice certainly leaves us craving more. Whether you love guac for the health benefits or to fill the snack gap, we’re dedicating this article to everything guacamole.
A closer look at the avocado.
Most people know that avocados are loaded with ‘good fat.’ But, did you know that a single fruit contains 15 grams of the good fat and 2 grams of protein? If that wasn’t enough, a single avocado also provides loads of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber. It truly is a superfood.
The rise of guacamole.
While the avocado in and of itself is a force to be reckoned with, guacamole takes things to the next level. While some of the earliest combinations included avocado, tomato, and chilis, today’s guacamole generally takes a traditional role. Of course, there is always room for experimenting with your favorite ingredients!
Here is a quick and easy at-home recipe to try when you can’t make it to your favorite Mexican restaurant in Manchester, Mi Jalisco:

Start by mashing your avocados. There is no right or wrong with consistency; it all lies with your preference. Mix in the lime juice and salt.
