Chunky avocado mixed with sour lime and crunchy fresh vegetables are the key ingredients to the infamous guacamole that we all know and love.
However, have you ever considered spicing things up a bit? Maybe by adding in some ripe mango?
Why add mango?
Guacamole is something I personally can’t get enough of. I put it on everything.
That being said, it is possible to get tired of a good thing. You know, when I made this recipe I had simply eaten too much regular guacamole. I (somehow) grew tired of it. Even good things get old after a while…
You know, kinda like when you eat that one type of cereal for a few months and before you know it, you just can’t take it ANYMORE. Everything in moderation, right?
So, to switch things up for my palette, I tried making guacamole with some different ingredients; like mangoes.
Is this better than regular guac?
Traditional guacamole is pretty hard to beat, so I don’t want to put these two in an unfair competition. The guacamole we all know and love is one of a kind, and unmatchable.
Nonetheless, this is a heck of a good alternative for when you’re just tired of regular old guacamole.
This is a sweet twist on the traditional recipe.
What can I eat guacamole with?
This guacamole makes a delicious topping for tacos and quesadillas, or even as dip for your favorite tortilla chips. Add it to your meals and enjoy as a delicious side, throw it on top of some toast for breakfast, use it for deviled eggs… The possibilities are endless. It fits perfectly into most Hispanic and Spanish meals, so be sure not to forget it when making rice and beans or paella.
