I tried my first guacamole taco in Alabama around 5 years ago. I nearly did a double take when reading the menu. “So… is it literally just guacamole on a taco?” It was. The taco was the epitome of simplicity, consisting of nothing but lettuce, tomato, and a gargantuan sized scoop of guacamole in a crunchy tortilla shell. It should have been boring, but it wasn’t. It was SO GOOD! It was all I could think about on the drive back to FL and, years later, I’m STILL thinking about it.
