NATIONAL SPICY GUACAMOLE DAY
National Spicy Guacamole Day is observed annually on November 14. Call your friends, get the chips ready and celebrate with a bowl of spicy guacamole dip.
Originating with the Aztecs in Mexico, guacamole is an avocado-based sauce which has become popular in American cuisine as a dip, condiment and salad ingredient.
Guacamole is made by using a mortar and pestle to mash ripe avocados and then mixing in sea salt. Sometimes tomatoes, onion, garlic, lemon juice, chili, yogurt or other seasonings are added. Jalapenos, chilis, cumin or red pepper can be added to the recipe to make the guacamole spicy.
Guacamole has become Super Bowl Sunday and Cinco de Mayo celebrations staples and has pushed avocado sales to 30 million pounds on those two days each year.
A simple Avocado carries a healthy punch of unsaturated fat (the good one), as well as substantial amounts of Vitamins C and E. Good things come in small packages, though. There are nearly 400 calories in 1 cup of guacamole.
