Guacamole originally comes from Mexico. It's a delicious dip and can also work as a tasty sauce. Avocados are the main ingredient, along with tomatoes, onions, garlic, lemon or lime juice, pepper, coriander and other herbs. It's a versatile accompaniment to a whole variety of different meals - with tacos, pasta, potatoes, in a wrap or on bread. Guacamole tastes so fantastic you could just enjoy it by itself!
The controversial debate about avocados
However, guacamole should not be made every day of the week. Avocados may be delicious, but avocado farming makes a lot of demands on the environment and consumes a lot of natural resources. Delivering avocados worldwide contributes to a global carbon footprint, and therefore we suggest eating avocados only on special occasions and not on a daily basis.
