To prepare this delicious avocado sauce you just have to obtain any kind of avocado. Some people prefer Hass avocados and others prefer Fuerte, since these are large and have excellent taste and texture. From them you can get a good quantity of sauce.

When you have the avocados at hand you just cut them in half and scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Then with a fork you mash the avocado flesh in a bowl. You keep this up until it turns into something like a puree. Once it is ready, you add the magic touch, a small bit of salt and this makes its flavor increase as if by magic. It becomes that much more delicious.

When the avocado sauce is ready you can add diced onions and tomatoes cut into small cubes. Then you stir it well so that all is well mixed. It is now ready to enjoy with some fluffy boiled potatoes.
