Day 145 of My Italian Learning Journal*

Tonight, for dinner we had chalupas, a Spanish-Mexican dish. The chalupas are made with corn tortillas, refried beans, shredded cheese, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, and the best part, topped with guacamole. The latter is made with avocado, mash to desired consistency. The avocado, Persea Americana, is said to have originated in Mexico and Peru. Archaeologists discovered the remains of the avocado plant in what is now Peru, carbon dated from 8,000 to 15,000 years ago. The avocado is technically a fruit, and even more specifically, a single-seeded berry. The guacamole is simply delicious, on chalupas, tacos, hamburgers, salads, and as a dip on the side. (Next is a practice script in Italian . . . grammar corrections are welcome.)
