How to Make Mango Guacamole

This appetizer is as easy as it gets! Everything comes together in one bowl.

  1. Mash Avocado: Scoop the avocado flesh into a mixing bowl and mash it with the back of a fork.
  2. Season: Season the avocado with salt, pepper and lime juice; mash to combine.
  3. Add Remaining Ingredients: Stir in the red onions, bell peppers, cilantro and garlic. Then, add mango and jalapeno and gently stir to combine. Taste for salt and pepper; adjust accordingly.
  4. Garnish & Serve: Garnish with chopped cilantro, if desired, and serve with tortilla chips.

Tips for Success

When working with fresh ingredients like those of this guac, it’s important to keep the following tips in mind.

  • Use Ripe Avocados: The best guacamole uses the ripest (but not overripe!) avocados. You can detect ripeness by gently pressing on the avocado. You should be able to press into it a little, but not too much. Ripe avocados are also darker in color, and the top stem is easily removed to show green underneath, not brown.
  • Don’t Let it Sit: If you’re not serving your guacamole right away, cover it and place it in the fridge until you’re ready to enjoy it. This will keep everything fresh and delicious.
  • Customize the Recipe! You can add whatever you’d like to your guacamole, and you can also make omissions as desired. Season to your liking and create the avocado dip of your dreams!

Ways to Use Guacamole

Sure, guacamole is a simple, classic appetizer dip – but it can also be used for much more. This guac is so good, you could pretty much eat it by the spoonful! I always do. 🙃

  • Wrap it Up: This guacamole will bring an explosion of fresh flavors to your favorite wraps and sandwiches. Add it for a summery twist!
  • Put it In a Salad: This Very Berry Avocado Salad is already an amazing summer treat, but you can level it up even more by using this guacamole in place of the diced avocado.
  • Make Shrimp and Guacamole Tortilla Bites: Tropical flavors plus seafood? Say less! This guacamole would be a brilliant option for my Cajun Shrimp & Guacamole Tortilla Bites.
  • Make Avocado Toast: You knew it was coming. There’s a reason avocado toast is so popular! It has the perfect balance of creaminess and crunchiness. This zingy mango guacamole can be turned into instant avocado toast! It’s a great way to use up leftover guac from the night before, if it doesn’t all get devoured.

How to Store Guacamole

  • If you have leftover guac, store it in an airtight container in the fridge. It will last for up to 2 days. I don’t recommend trying to freeze guacamole.

ENJOY!
