This chunky-style Guasacaca is Venezuela’s version of guacamole, and it is typically served as a condiment for grilled meats. This guasacaca recipe has a chunky texture that’s perfect for chips.
Chopped avocado, green pepper, garlic, and tomato are the star ingredients, and vinegar keeps the avocado green instead of the more typical lime juice. Spice it up a little with tobasco sauce for those who like it hot.
Serve guasacaca with chips, or with grilled steaks. It’s delicious on burgers too.
