Costa Rican Guacamole Recipe And How To Prepare It- Foodies Delight

Guacamole from Costa Rica

Even though guacamole is a Latin dish, mainly from Mexico, the rest of Central America, Costa Rica included, has made it like their own.

It’s a yummy and healthy salad or spread, and super easy to make. Tortillas, nachos, bread, and even some kinds of tamales go great with it.

You can find the Guacamole in most of the Costa Rica Cuisine. There are tons of recipes for it and all are amazing. But out of all of those recipes here is my favorite.

This is the fun part. I have discovered a great variation to traditional guac. Instead of fresh coriander, how up Basil! Yes, basil. You’ll be surprised how delicious it is. Plus, I’ve started adding chopped up almonds. Anyone who has tasted my guac are most impressed with this ingredient. Try it, and you’ll be amazed how tasty it is!
