Mango Guacamole

Serve with tortilla chips and salsa or as a topping for many salads. I even use it in place of mayonnaise on sandwiches, and it’s great on BLTs. This makes a great side dish for parties or as an appetizer or snack. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

2 avocados
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/2 cup chopped mango
1/2 lime (squeezed for lime juice)
cayenne pepper and salt to taste
4 sprigs of fresh cilantro (chopped)

Scoop the avocados out of the shells, but save the pits. Lightly mash with a fork in a small mixing bowl. Add onion, mango, salt, pepper and lime. Stir to combine. Garnish with chopped cilantro before serving.

If you are keeping the guacamole for a while, throw the pits on top of the guacamole to slow the browning process.

Variations

  • Omit the mango for a more traditional guacamole.
  • Add some extra cilantro just for fun.
  • Someone here in this house likes to replace the onion with garlic, but the garlic always seems a little overpowering to me.
  • Can be easily made low-sodium and gluten-free.
