This Chunky Guacamole Recipe is the one that I grew up eating, and the one that my mom still makes. Throughout my childhood, I always thought that everyone made guacamole this way, since that was the way it was served everywhere I went, whether it was a restaurant or a relative’s house. I have to admit that I like it to look very neat and not-messy (like in the pictures here), but if your avocados are softer then they will get a little mushy when mixed with the rest of the ingredients. If they end up getting a little bit messy, this is perfectly fine, as that is the classic way that guacamole is served in many homes.
Avocados are an important part of our cuisine; the same way other cultures like to often add potatoes or cabbage to their meals, we love to add avocados. This is why it is not surprising that Mexico is the number one avocado producer in the world, producing 30% of all avocados worldwide. You can find avocados year-round in Mexico, with the central state of Michoacán being one of the main growers of this delicious fruit.
I hope you make your next guacamole a chunky guacamole!
