I think some of you probably don’t know what a guacamole is. Guacamole is a Mexican avocado sauce made from fresh avocado, diced tomatoes, a little lime juice to make the sauce fresh and balance the flavor, finely chopped garlic, onion, cilantro and jalapeño, along with salt and pepper. Mash the avocado and mix it with all the ingredients until it becomes paste.
Guacamole is served with numerous Mexican dishes, such as tacos, burritos, and fajitas. It can also be served as dipping sauce.
Making a guacamole is as easy as ABC, but not with its pronunciation. If you pronounce guacamole as “gwa-kah-mo-lay”, then you’ve been pronouncing it wrong. 😀
In Spanish, “aguacate” is an avocado, and “mole” is derived from an Aztec word which means sauce, so you can translate guacamole as avocado sauce.
The rule of pronouncing G before U and A in Spanish language, as in guacamole, is sort of like a soft G or “hwa” sound; therefore, we should pronounce it as “hwa-kah-mo-lay”.
So “Gwa-kah-mo-lay” or “hwa-kah-mo-lay”? Olé!! 😀
