6 things guacamole is not
1. Nope, not dessert material
Unlike most fruits, avocado is not sweet but buttery. This dip is essentially spicy, and the level of spice can be adjusted by adding the appropriate amount of chillies.
2. Not a mole
If guacamole were a question in your paper, you know you’d write a five page essay on guacamole being the king of all moles.
3. Not rocket science
It is a Mexican delicacy but it isn’t an intricate dish. Avocado can be easily smashed with a fork.
4. Sorry, vegetarians, not always
Guacamole need not necessarily be a vegetarian sauce. Bacon and other meat are often smashed and added to the pureed avocado.
5. Not green? Not a problem
Guacamole turns brown only because it gets oxidized when exposed to air. If you want to retain the greenness of the guacamole for a longer time, puree the seeds with the fruit.
6. Not if you have four legs
Guacamole, despite being made from a fruit, is not safe for dogs. Avocado has a substance called ‘persin’ which is toxic to dogs in large amounts.
