Suncoast View: Best Dishes with Guacamole

Guacamole is quite historic. The Aztec empire created this spread with the same exact ingredients that local restaurants use today. The Aztecs called this saucy spread ahuaca-mulli which translates to avocado mixture or avocado sauce.  We've traveled the Suncoast to find our favorite dishes with guacamole.  Be sure to pay them a visit:
