Venezuelan Guasacaca

Beth Renzetti


Try this instead of the usual Mexican guacamole...

I edited the original recipe that I found to reflect my personal tastes. Use whichever pepper makes you happiest & as much as you like. I prefer my onion grated vs. eating chunks of raw onion. Use your best olive oil in this, too.
