14. You Have Mayans To Thank For Guacamole
Mexican food is incomplete without a bowl of guacamole, and the origin of this delicious side dish can be traced back to the Mayans! The Maya people grew several different varieties of Avocados and made the earliest versions of this world-famous dip.
The authentic, ancient Guacamole contained onion, chilies, and generous splashes of lime juice – ingredients that we still use today. Mmm, sounds like the Mayans really knew how to make good food!
