Homemade Guacamole with Mayonnaise

 

I came to know the Mexican cuisine in 1999 on my first trip to the United States. As from then Mexican products and its culinary always struck me, perhaps, by my love affair with their different spicy spices, or it may be for the trauma I've acquired from tequila in one of those "noches Mexicanas"(not worth mentioning the episode here).

The most common use of guacamole is as a dip for corn tortillas, but can also be served in numerous other ways, even as an accompaniment to salads, it all depends on your creativity.
