As I said a million times, in South America we are obsessed with avocados. This is not a new trend for us, this is just life. We use it along our main dishes with a pinch of salt like a sacred ritual for our meals.
But I am sure that you’ve never hear the term “guasacaca”. This creamy piece of heaven is the Venezuelan version of guacamole. They look similar, but they are not!
First, a good guacamole has chunks of ingredients: piece of tomatoes, onions and avocado. A guasacaca is a smooth cream designed to go along with arepas or empanadas.
The flavor of the guacamole is based on the onion and the tomato. The guasaca has a strong acid flavor thanks to the lime juice and the vinegar.
The guacamole is a dish by itself along with some nachos. Guasacaca is just a topping for other dishes.
At the end of the day both are delicious creations of avocado. So if you are a true avocado fan you have to try a good guasacaca in your life!
- 1 avocado
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp white vinegar.
- 1 lime juice
- ¼ cup of coriander
- 1 garlic clove
Add all the ingredients to the blender and blend them in high speed for 5 minutes.
Hard, isn’t it? 🙂
