Spicy Mango Guacamole

/// July 17th, 2011

Spicy Mango Guacamole Friends, I’ve made you something green, chunky, and vastly versatile. Something seriously scrumptious. Totally tasty.

You can make it a snack, a meal, a dip or a spread. Really. Just add some cold beverages and good company and you’re destined for a glorious Summer night. I did that for YOU!

It’s healthy too –  so it won’t make you feel so bad about breaking up with the gym this weekend. Or eating half a chocolate cake with sweet creamy coffee at 7 am. Or abandoning the whole “eat better and get a booty like Pippa Middleton” plan.

… that was my plan.

Spicy Mango Guacamole Did I mention this green flavor bomb is creamy-buttery-smooth-dream town?

And there isn’t a single ounce of cream or butter?!  gasp. And, it has GOOD fats in it!! Say it with me, GOOD FAT. Simple, spicy, avocado magic.

Spicy Mango Guacamole Sweet diced mango adds a sunny burst of color and flavor. Mangos are ferociously sexy right now. Fleshy, plump, and bursting with juicy goodness, the way they should be. This dreamy stone fruit plays something deliciously fierce against the fiery heat of the jalapenos.

Spicy Mango Guacamole Wait. You brought the chips, right?

I hope you got fresh, salty ones. Stale corn chips really do this dip an injustice.

Don’t be like me and pull out that bag (you know, the one all the way at the back of the cabinet that you ripped opened after too many tequilas and then forgot to chip clip shut. yea, that one) and try and pass them off as fresh. You will notice. Your guest will totally notice.

They won’t say anything, (unless you do first) because they are your guest after all. And i’m sure they don’t want to look like a huge chip snob jerk face. Ya know? But deep down they will be wondering why the heck you would make such an amazing dip, only to serve it up with stale, crisp-less chips.

Whhhyyyyy???

So just buy new chips, please please please. Please? This is me begging. And, asking nicely. Because it’s that important, and I only want the best for you! You could also toast up some baguette and slice it thinly, which is what I ended up doing in the end. Just be sure to take small bites of the baguette and CHEW… like a human, not a horse, lest you pull a jaw muscle and then feel the need to whine about it for the next 45 minutes- You know who you are.

Spicy Mango Guacamole I really wish I was eating this right now. I wouldn’t use chips. Or bread. Just a spoon. I would scoop it straight from bowl to mouth, happy as a clam.

What I’m trying to tell you is, I think you should make this for dinner, or a snack, or as an appetizer for your next party, and then invite me over. I’ll bring the chips, fresh ones. Promise.

      Mango works great because it’s fruity, but blends well and doesn’t overwhelm the already great flavor combinations.

      Thanks Julie, but seriously- that girl is a workout workhorse; if only we had the time the royals do! (sigh) Tomorrow is always another day… another chance to get it shakin’ to the gym!

      Hi Corrie,

      Avocado does deserve a little “hurrah” doesn’t it?! It was quite delicious, and sadly only lasted about 13 minutes between two of us… if that is telling you anything about the taste.

      Hi Kelly! There is nothing like a gorgeous and guilt free treat, is there? Stella is such a great beer; we all deserve a little time to relax and unwind with a few cold ones.

    What a great idea! I love mango and I love guacamole – of course they’d go great together! And I SO agree about stale chips – a definite no-no.

      Hi Courtney! Ha, I’m glad you are on my side here; those corn chips were a total dud. The guacamole is great with bread too, or even on a sandwich. I’ve been dreaming of spreading it on a big, juicy burger.

      Hey there Kat! It ended up being killer indeed! The mangos sweetness added a nice contrast to that burning jalapeno; guacamole love.

      Hi Nami! If you are craving it, it’s super easy to whip up! I think it took me 20 minutes for everything to be ready and on the table.

    Considering my adoration for avocados, it really works out that they are actually good for you. I could eat them on/with anything. This guac sounds amazing, and I love the addition of mangos. Great choice in beer, btw. :)

      Hey Jayme! I think we all have those dusty bags of corn chips hidden away in the dark of our cupboards… just don’t let them jump out when they see this dip! If you have two avocados in front of you, halve the recipe!!! Let me know if you give it a go.

    This salad has my name written all over it. Love, love, love the mango in the guacamole. What a terrific idea and one that never even crossed my mind. Forget the chips (well, maybe I’ll have a few….), just give me a spoon. I will definitely be trying this.

      Hi Sam! A spoon is a great way to go; this has so much flavor it really stands well on its own, although a few super crunchy chips add a nice salty touch. I’m so glad you are going to try this, let me know how it turns out if you do, please!

    First of all, your photography is UNREAL! Second of all, that guacamole looks amazing. I don’t like mango but I think even if I left it out it would be quite delicious.

      Hi Cait! You are just the sweetset; thank you for your kind words. It is totally just as tasty minus the mango, but if you wanted a fruity twist I bet pineapple would be great.

      Hi Ari. Ha, I am always tempted to eat the whole bowl myself too, but sharing with someone cute can be totally worth it.

      Hey there Lisa! I love guacamole too, I know making it homemade seems like extra work when you can just buy a tub of the premade stuff, but the taste is totally worth it.

      Hey there Geni! I love mangos and guacamole both as if, but the combo of the two flavors is ridiculously good. Glad you enjoyed your time here, and I hope to hear from you again.

      Hi Charis! No avocados in India, eh? That would raise a problem for guacamole. Hopefully you will find something here that you can make :)
