Mango Guacamole “Recipe”

When I say “recipe,” I mean it in the loosest sense of the word. I mean, who am I to tell you what to do? You do you. But, if you want to be a hit at parties, bring this guac.

If I were a real recipe creator/food photographer I’d have staged this photo with some gorgeous homemade, organic, blue corn tortilla chips shaped like Frida Kahlo’s eyebrow, but the avocados were ready RIGHT FUCKING NOW so I popped over to the Sev and bought whatever tortilla chips they had.

The mango in this recipe sounds weird, but it really takes this guac over the top.

Mango Guacamole:

Ingredients:

4 avocados

1 large tomato, seeded

1 mango

Garlic (I usually use around 1/2 a teaspoon of garlic powder for this, but a couple of minced cloves of fresh garlic is also great. Depends on how pungent you wanna be. Like I said, YOU DO YOU.)

Hot sauce of your choice, to taste (I use Sriracha, cuz it’s always in my house.) Or use a finely diced and seeded jalapeno.

Lime juice (start with a teaspoon and see how it tastes. Adjust to taste. (Use fresh or bottled, I don’t judge. Well, I do, but not about lime juice.)

Sea salt (start with 1/2 a teaspoon and adjust to taste. Overdid it a bit? Add some more tomato.)

ACTION PLAN:

Dice and seed tomatoes and dice the mango. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, mash your avocados with the garlic, lime juice, hot sauce (or jalapeno) and salt. I use a potato masher for this. It’s not a LOT more efficient than a fork, but it’s more fun.

Add your tomato and mango, and adjust your seasoning to your taste.

¡Buen provecho!
