Guasacaca – Avocado Sauce

Guasacaca – Avocado Sauce

This is one of those recipes that is super simple but I never took the time to make until recently. Guasacaca is a very common sauce used in Central American and Mexican cuisine. The flavor is fantastic and it adds a nice texture and perfect moisture to many dishes like tacos, burritos, nachos and many sandwich type meals. Be sure to serve it at about room temperature to ensure that you’re getting the full effect of the flavors. Also since it’s commonly served on dishes which are best served hot, if you serve it at room temperature the dish you’re adding it to will still be warm and good to eat.

The many fresh ingredients make this avocado sauce very healthy, providing tons of vitamins. This is one of those recipes I like to make and add to everything I eat if I think I’m coming down with a cold.
