Comment(s):

In Italian, "crostini" means "little toasts," and it is a very accurate description of the food. Crostini are made by thinly slicing bread, typically plain white bread, and toasting or grilling so that it becomes crispy.

Guacamole is a Mexican thick, avocado-based dip typically served with tortilla chips. The most basic recipe includes mashed avocado, chopped tomato, onion, cilantro, lime, and chilies, and is seasoned with salt, cumin, and pepper.
