How to make “guacamole” Posted by on Jul 22, 2013 in Spanish Culture

Hey, everybody!

In my first visit to the United States I had lunch at a language school in Boston and guess what they had for lunch? Guacamole!

In Brazil we usually eat avocadoes with sugar or as a smoothie, with milk and sugar, so I’d never eaten it with salt – and I liked it!

So I decided to share this little guacamole recipe with you!

1 manojo de cilantro (bunch of coriander)
2 chiles serranos (opcional) (serrano peppers)
