Guacamole in any form is a staple in my apartment, but when I want to mix things up, I usually turn to whatever ripe fruit I have on hand. Namely, mangoes. I've done this recipe using pineapple instead, but I do love the sweetness of the mango paired with spiciness of the chile. Enjoy this chunky twist on everyday guacamole

Notes

 

Back To Avocado 101!

 

Ingredients

  • 3-4 ripe Hass avocados
  • ¼ red onion, finely chopped
  • ¼ bunch fresh cilantro or mint, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, minced
  • Pinch of cumin
  • 1 ripe mango, cut into small cubes
  • Salt, to taste
  • Juice of 1 lime, or more to taste

Directions

Open the avocados, slicing them lengthwise, remove the pits and slide the meat out of the skins into a large serving bowl. Using a fork, gently mash the avocados until chunky (you will be combining it with the remaining ingredients, so leave it a little chunkier than you like for now.) Add the remaining ingredients and combine. Season to taste, adding more salt and lime juice as needed. Serve immediately with tortilla chips or other dipper of your choice. 

Mango Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Mango Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
