I ♡Avocados! I’m one of those people who think everything tastes better with avocados. And if we add the incredible nutritional value they have it’s a way better.
Avocados are a good source of fiber, potassium, and vitamins C, K, folate, and B6. One globe contains more than one-third daily value of vitamin C, and more than half the day’s requirements of vitamin K. Do I need so say more? The perfect excuse to use them everyday!
Great Taste + Great Nutrition = Avocados
Today, I would like to share with you my own version of Avocado Sauce or as we know it back home “Guasacaca”!
Many people compare Guasacaca with Guacamole, but for me they are two very different flavors. Guasacaca can be served as a sauce to top a steak, hamburger, hotdog, tacos, and tostadas. Even to dress other side dishes, such as potatoes, yuca, or anything else you can think of. Guasacaca can also be used as a simple dip to serve with chips.
There are many ways to prepare this sauce, all depends on the person taste. For example, if you like it spicier you can add more garlic and/or onion – my family prefer avocado as main flavor, for this reason I add little garlic. Another difference you can see in my recipe is that I use corn oil instead of olive oil. I personally do not like the taste that olive oil gives to this sauce, but it’s your choice which oil are you going to use.
The good things is that Avocados from Mexico are available year-round, with their peak of the season being from September through May – yes they’re truly a winter fruit! It takes only 4 to 5 days for Mexican avocados to get from the orchards to the market place making them the freshest avocados available.
