Guasacaca (Better Than Guacamole?)
Guasacaca (Better Than Guacamole?)
This guasacaca recipe is Venezuela's version of guacamole. A flavorful sauce made with ripe avocados, fresh herbs, chilies and more. So versatile.


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 2 jalapeno peppers chopped (use bell pepper for a milder version)
  • 1 shallot or small onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • Juice from 1 small lime
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Peel and seed the avocados. Give them a rough chop and add them to a food processor or blender along with the peppers, onion, garlic, cilantro parsley, vinegar and lime juice.
  2. Process until fairly smooth.
  3. Drizzle in the olive oil a bit at a time with the processor running. Process until the avocado salsa becomes thick and creamy.
  4. Adjust with salt and pepper to taste. Serve!
