Mango Guacamole- A sweet twist on a classic favorite

20140418-095748.jpg In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I'm posting this absolute stunner of a recipe.

Who doesn't love a good scoop of guacamole? Creamy avocado, savory spices, the crunch of a warm tortilla. This recipe will engage your entire tongue as all of the tastes, sweet, savory, spicy,  are set into action.

Warning: You may have to break this recipe out on the fifth of every month, not just May! Here's what you'll need:

3 large avocados (soft to the touch)

1 mango (soft to the touch)

1/2 onion

1 small jalapeno pepper

1/2 tomato

1 orange

1 lemon

fresh chopped cilantro to taste

sea salt to taste

pepper to taste


Here's what to do:

Pull out your chopping board, because you've got a lot of dicing (small chop) ahead of you!

I like to dice in this order: onions, jalapeno, tomato, mango, and avocado (avocados turn brown quickly, that's why I save them for last).

Once everything has been diced and mixed together, squeeze the juice from the orange and lemon over the mixture. Add chopped cilantro, sea salt and pepper.

Depending upon your preferred guacamole texture you'll toss or mash. I like to do a combination of both. I don't like my guacamole too pasty, but I do like for it to be somewhat mushed together.
