Celebrate National Guac Day with Verde Kitchen & Cocktails
Everybody loves guacamole! This tasty green blend is an outstanding dip or topping. The main ingredient of guacamole is avocado. In addition to avocados, guacamole can include onion, garlic, cilantro, tomato, cumin, and even pre-made salsa. Originally, guacamole was served with tortilla chips, but you can also eat guacamole with celery, carrot sticks, and corn chips. You can even add it to a salad, sandwich, or hamburger. If you’re a lover of guacamole, you can celebrate National Guac Day with Verde Kitchen & Cocktails!
National Guacamole Day is September 16, 2020. Before guacamole was called guacamole, it was called ahuaca-mulli. This is what the Aztecs, who created the dish, called it. Ahuaca-mulli means avocado sauce. The Aztecs made guacamole all the way back in the 1500s.
In 1833, the first avocado trees were planted in Florida. Then, in 1836, avocado trees were cultivated in California. It wasn’t until 1935 that the Hass Avocado got its name. Rudolph Hass originated this term after he purchased a seedling from a farmer. Hass Avocados are the most popular avocados in the United States.
In the year 2014, America’s consumption of avocados grew from 1 to 7 pounds per capita over the course of 20 years. Clearly, avocados are loved by many and they aren’t losing popularity any time soon.
