Guasacaca is to Venezuelan cuisine what Guacamole is to Mexican gastronomy. Not as universal and creamy as guacamole, guasacaca is an avocado based sauce with a pungent flavor given by red wine vinegar. Guasacaca can be found in any Venezuelan restaurant and arepera. There is no BBQ party without guasacaca, because it pairs perfectly with grilled beef, chorizo or chicken. We also have it with hallaquitas (plain corn mini tamales), yucca and of course, to condiment empanadas, arepas, or like I did with Cacique Oaxaca grilled quesadillas.

These quesadillas, are a staple in my kitchen and a favorite, easy to make brunch. I made them in a grill pan, but they can also be made in an outdoor grill. When we moved from Venezuela to Southern California, quesadillas were perfect to introduce my kids to the California flavors. Now, while serving them with our delicious guasacaca, we have Venezuela and Mexico in our table.
