How to taste guacamole in Mexico City
Guacamole served as a dip or appetizer is considered a traditional Mexican dish. There is no universal guacamole recipe — it varies depending on chef's bold ideas and culinary traditions of the region. Its gimmick is that it is easy to cook and the ingredients are easy to find.

Guacamole basic ingredients are a ripe avocado, salt, lime or lemon juice, chili pepper. Other variations of this recipe may also include onion, garlic and tomatoes. In Mexico they add physalis (also known as ground-cherry, Inca berry or Cape gooseberry) to the other ingredients.

Guacamole is prepared in a special way. To crumble the ingredients, they mash them up in a special mortar made of volcanic rock. Alternatively, you can use an ordinary fork or blender. Everything depends on the desired consistency of the sauce. Chunky guacamole is often served as an appetizer, while mashed guacamole is served as a dip.

One more recipe of making guacamole is to boil physalis fruit with chili pepper, garlic and onion. Then they mash the ready ingredients together with coriander and avocado. It's mostly this variety of the dip that you will find in the restaurants of Mexico City and at the street shops.
