“This recipe does not contain avocado. This is the kind of guasacaca you would find at food carts selling arepas on the calle de hambre (hunger streets) in Venezuela. Every family has their own recipe, and this is ours. Adjusting the taste is very simple once the ingredients are in the blender. Just add more of whatever you'd like.”
