This is by far the most unusual barbecue sauce in Latin America. Because 
it contains fresh avocados, it must be used immediately and cannot be
stored. Use it to marinate and/or baste grilled or barbecued shrimp,
beef slices, or chicken.


Ingredients


1 cup minced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 habanero chile, seeds and stem removed, minced, or substitute 2 jalapeños
1 large ripe avocado, peeled and pit removed
2 cups peeled and chopped ripe tomatoes
1 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar or substitute lime juice
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
2 tablespoons minced parsley (Italian preferred)
Salt to taste


Instructions


With a mortar and pestle, mash the onion, garlic, chile, avocado, and 
tomatoes into a paste (this may need to be done in batches). Add the
remaining ingredients and blend well with a fork.
Servings
