I am blogging this week from the sunny state of Arizona! My husband has a work conference so I decided to tag along. Sure, force
me to lay by the pool all day in the 80-degree weather... (Feel free to hate me, it's ok.)
It's quite fitting that I'm sharing a recipe for Mango Guacamole
- because avocados are everywhere down here! They are definitely a southwestern staple. This guacamole is a nice twist on the classic, full of flavor from lime juice, cilantro, mangoes, and a bit of jalapeno. It's actually become my go-to guacamole recipe. (It's that good!)
The hardest part of making it is dicing the mango. It's so slimy and hard to peel. Forget peeling it! All you need to do is cut right down, almost through the center, and you'll end up with two flat ovals of mango. Just score them in a crosshatch pattern with your knife, and then you can easily dice little chunks!
For the actual guacamole, simply mash together some ripe avocados, a little red onion, a diced jalapeno, salt, pepper, fresh lime juice, and some diced cilantro. And of course, the mango! Serve it up with your favorite tortilla chips and you won't be able to stop eating it.
: 3-4 cups
- 4 ripe avocados
- 2 ripe mangoes, chopped
- ⅓ cup chopped red onion
- 1 small jalapeno , seeded & chopped
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- juice from 2 limes
- ½ cup diced cilantro
Mash avocado meat in a bowl. Stir in mango, red onion, jalapeno, salt, pepper, lime juice, and cilantro. Mash until it reaches your desired consistency. Serve with tortilla chips.
