Spicy Avocado Sauce
(Salsa Guasacaca)
Before using hot chilies, please read "How to Handle Hot Chilies" article.
What You Need:
  • 1 small ripe tomato
  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon red chili paste or very finely chopped, seeded, fresh hot chili
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely diced green pepper
  • 1 cold hard-cooked egg, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh coriander (cilantro)

  • How To Cook:
    1. Cut out the stem of the tomato, then slice the tomato in half crosswise. Squeeze each half gently to extract the seeds and juices, discard them, and chop the tomato into ¼-inch dice.

    2. Cut the avocado in half. With the tip of a small knife, loosen the seed and lift it out. Remove any brown tissue like fibers clinging to the flesh.

    3. Strip off the skin with your fingers, starting at the narrow stem end (the dark-skinned variety does not peel easily; use a small, sharp knife to pull the skin away, if necessary). Chop the avocado into small dice.

    4. In a large mixing bowl combine the oil, vinegar, chili paste (or fresh chili), salt and black pepper, and, with a large wooden spoon, mix well. Add the diced tomato, avocado, green pepper, chopped egg, parsley and coriander, and mix together gently but thoroughly.

    5. Taste for seasoning. "Guasacaca" is traditionally served with grilled meats.

    To Make: about 1½ cups of sauce
