This is probably one of the easiest yet most delicious recipes I've tried yet! Are any of you guys a fan of sweet and salty? I know I am! This guacamole is so refreshing, especially in the summertime and it's so simple to make. Doesn't even require any baking or cooking... I just used all fresh ingredients so it's extremely healthy as well! As you guys might tell, most of my food recipes are very simple and a mix of all the cultures I love. This recipe is perfect for a potluck/party or even just a nice snack for those of you working men/women out there who don't have lots of time to prepare something elaborate. Oh! And before I forget... SAVE THE PIT OF THE AVOCADO! Below I'll share a fun tip so you can preserve this guacamole overnight. So let's get started!
** This recipe yields 1-2 servings
- 1 avocado
- 1 champagne mango (you can use a regular one as well)
- 1/2 an onion
- 1/2 a garlic, minced (OPTIONAL)
- 1/2 a tomato (OPTIONAL)
- 1/2 a jalapeno pepper (OPTIONAL)
- 1/2 a lime OR lemon
- salt and pepper
1.) Cut your avocado in half (lengthwise), pit it, and then cut it in half again.
2.) Peel the avocados and start smushing it in a bowl with a fork. Set aside once it is nicely mashed.
3.) Dice your onion into tiny squares (close to a mince) and put it in the bowl with the avocados and mix.
4.) Season the avocado/onion mix with salt and pepper. Taste, and season accordingly.
5.) At this point you can either dice a bit of tomatoes and jalapenos into the mixture... OPTIONAL.
6.) Dice your mango into small squares.
7.) Fold into the avocado, taste, and VOILA!
And spritz a bit of your lemon or lime after for a nice touch! This recipe is so tasty... I absolutely love the sweetness that comes out from the mangos. Pairs amazingly with the avocado.
FUN TIP! Have any of you guys ever wanted to take this to a social gathering but wanted to make it the night before? But then the color of the guacamole will change to a gross brown color... here's a solution!
In the bowl of your freshly made mango guacamole (don't squeeze the lime/lemon in yet!), put the pit right in the middle and cover it with the surrounding guacamole. Then, take saran wrap and tightly/closely wrap the guacamole so that the saran tightly touches all the guacamole. Finally, cover the top of the actual bowl once more with another piece of saran.
Above is an image of the guacamole the next day... how cool! Hope you enjoyed!
