I love avocado madly and it is one of the fruits I miss the most being far away from Colombia. Fortunately the supply of avocado in Germany has increased and in recent years, at least in Berlin, it is much easier and more affordable to buy avocados. Many times in supermarkets like Rewe you can find them for 90 cents. This can vary a bit depending on where you live both in Germany and in the capital. The avocados that I like the most are the ones from Edeka and Kaufland, they are the ones that have turned out the least bad.
I love to make this sauce and eat it with empanadas, green plantain toast, beef, chicken, boiled potatoes, arepa, rice, and yucca. It even tastes good on bread for breakfast and on top of a poached egg.... Yummy!
If you don't like it spicy just don't add the chili. You can also add finely chopped tomato, red pepper, red onion or garlic powder to this preparation. Find the way you like to make it.
2 to 3 large avocados (I used Hass avocados which are the most common in Germany).
2 stalks of spring onion finely chopped
1-2 chili peppers (optional-depends on how spicy you like it) finely chopped and without the seeds, if you don't have any, you can replace it with any hot sauce you have
1 splash of olive oil (if the taste bothers you, use another vegetable oil such as canola oil)
1 lime juice (we call it lemon in Colombia) or to taste.
1 bunch of coriander or to taste, finely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
Add the avocados previously cut into chunks to a bowl and mash them with a fork. It is okay to leave small pieces so that the texture is not completely homogeneous. Add to the bowl the finely chopped cilantro and the finely chopped onion. Stir and add the chili to taste, lime juice, salt, pepper and oil. Mix all the ingredients well, taste a little to correct the flavor according to your taste and that's it.
You can keep it in the refrigerator well covered for up to 3 days. Be sure to add a little more lemon and oil to make it last longer. But I actually always prefer to eat this sauce the same day.
