We should perhaps have a food category on this site but we don’t. Guacamole on its own is not a particularly attractive dish. It needs something to go with it. Tortilla chips certainly. Generally guac, as it is often known, is an accompaniment. A side dish that enhances the main event rather than being the main course itself. It has an almost bland smoothness with a subtle flavour.
Note the presence of a spoon. This underlines the fact that guacamole is a working dish. One to be eaten as opposed to just being on display within the pages of a colour supplement. This particular guacamole is no more, consumed together with some plain boiled rice and a vegetable chilli – see below.
