Guacamole Sauce

Guacamole Sauce

Mexican guacamole sauce has almost no alternative in the cuisines of other nations. Make this avocado sauce with the addition of lime juice and fresh cilantro. These ingredients are enough to get a base - a classic sauce, on the basis of which you can create different variations of guacamole. The sauce can be served with Mexican tortilla or corn chips, and you can decorate it with various dishes of meat, fish, and vegetables. This sauce, among others, is often offered to fajitos.

Cooking Features

In the preparation of guacamole sauce can be attributed to the most simple dishes. With knowledge of several subtleties, even an inexperienced cook can make it tasty and fragrant.

  • The main ingredient of guacamole sauce is avocado. Only very ripe fruits are suitable for the sauce. You should choose those that are not too firm to the touch, otherwise you will not be able to knead their flesh with a fork, as required by the classical technology of preparing guacamole sauce.
  • Clearing the avacado is a bad idea. Correctly cut it in half and remove the bone, then remove the pulp with a teaspoon. The bone can be easily removed if you insert a knife into it, as if you have made an incision, and turn it slightly.
  • The classic recipe for guacamole sauce uses lime juice. It can be replaced with lemon juice, but only taking into account the fact that lemon usually has a richer flavor and is required for the sauce a little less.
  • Keep citrus grains from getting into the sauce.
  • If you chose this variant of guacamole sauce, which includes tomatoes, then they should be cleaned using only the flesh. To make tomatoes easier to clean, they should be doused with boiling water or dipped in boiling water for 2 minutes. If before this the skin of the tomatoes is notched crosswise, then afterwards it will be removed literally in no time.
  • Traditionally, ingredients for guacamole sauce are crushed, kneading with a fork or finely slicing with a knife, but the use of kitchen appliances is quite acceptable. If you want to save time, all the ingredients can be placed in the bowl of a blender and turned into a puree with it.
  • If the ingredients used for guacamole sauce are not pureed, but coarsely chopped, they will constitute an excellent side dish for meat.

Subtleties of technology may depend on the selected recipe, because in addition to the classical, there are many other variations.
