cowboy guasacaca by Chez la mere

This is a green sauce kept in a plastic squeeze bottle at the register of every food stand and corner eatery in venezuela. They use it like we use ketchup. You get your food, and squeeze some of this awesomeness into it no matter what it is.. There is avocado in it, but it plays a bit more of a minor role lime).
