A Quick History of Guacamole and Hummus
Guacamole is a dish that originates from Mexico. The word “guacamole” comes from the Aztec word “ahuacamolli”, which means “avocado sauce”. Guacamole is typically made with mashed avocado, onion, tomato, lime juice, and chili pepper.
The earliest known recipe for guacamole was found in the General History of the Things of New Spain, written in 1554 by Fray Bernardino de Sahagun. This recipe consisted of only avocado, salt, and chili pepper.
Today, guacamole is a popular dish all over the world. It is often served as a dip or condiment. Guacamole can be found in many different variations, such as with added cheese or sour cream.

Hummus has a long and rich history dating back to ancient Egypt. The word “hummus” actually comes from the Arabic word for “chickpea”. Chickpeas were a popular food in the region and were often ground into a paste or flour.
It’s believed that hummus was first created by the Egyptians, but it wasn’t until the Ottoman Empire that it became widely known. The Ottomans spread hummus throughout the Middle East and Europe, where it quickly became a popular dish.
