Our Naked Burrito inspired today’s daily email to our Goodies. It went something like this:

Holy Guacamole! Here are a few interesting facts about this ancient concoction.
  1. Back in the 1900’s a Spanish-English pronunciation guide listed guacamole as a “salad of alligator pear”. Charming.
  2. On two days a year: Super Bowl Sunday and Cinco de Mayo, over 20 million pounds of avocados are used for guacamole.
  3. Early recipes from the California Avocado Advisory Board (Calavo), published in the 1940s, were accompanied with a pronunciation suggestion: “Say Huakamole”.  (TOTAL SIDEBAR: Could you imagine the inter-boardroom fights at Calavo coming to the above mentioned pronunciation suggestion? “I don’t care what you say, I think it should be pronounced GUAC-amole“……”What? That’s simply madness, you know it originates back to the Aztecs, they would have never accepted that pronunciation, you are knowingly compromising the integrity of the avocado, and I will not stand for this insubordination, I think you should leave…all in favour, say I.”)
  4. Here’s a redic delish recipe for an amazing guac-salsa dip. Enjoy.
