Like most Mexican food, Guacamole is extremely versatile and you can eat it almost with anything that tickles your appetite. However, if you are looking for new ways to enjoy your guac or just want to know how Mexicans consume it, here are some examples of yummy guacamole pairings for you to try.
1. As a Dip
Guacamole is a great dip for nachos or chips. If you want to get a little more creative, try garlic bread sticks or sweet potato chips.
2. With a Fine Beef Cut
In northern Mexico, carne asada (grilled beef) is a social occasion and great beef cuts are central to this social ritual. Northern Mexicans really love carne asada, and most agree that guacamole is an ideal pairing for a fine beef cut.
3. With Shawarma
There are many surprising affinities between Mexican food and shawarma (for example, it’s likely that tacos al pastor evolved from shawarma), so it’s not surprising to learn that shawarma in Mexico is often served with guacamole.
4. In Your Quesadillas
Delicious and easy to make, quesadillas are a real time-saver. But if what you want is an easy way to punch up a basic quesadilla, just add some guacamole! The combination of fresh avocado and melting cheese is simply irresistible.
5. With Chicharron
Chicharron is a Mexican specialty consisting of fried pork rinds. The pairing of crunchy, salty chicharron, and soft, citrusy taste of guacamole is a favorite all over Mexico.
6. With Seafood
Surprisingly, the freshness of guacamole is also a great foil for seafood. Some alternatives included shrimp, tuna, and salmon, but almost any pairing works thanks to guac’s citrusy flavors.
7. With Any Chicken Dish
Guac and chicken go great together. Whether it’s grilled chicken, chicken tacos, chicken flautas or even chicken salad,you just can’t go wrong when you add guacamole to the equation. And if you want to take the delight to the extreme, make sure the chicken in question is El Pollo Norteno’s authentic Mexican chicken grilled over real Mesquite charcoal!
