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