Holy Moly Mango Guacamole

mango_guacamoleYou Have Guac To Be Kidding Me…

You think you’ve seen it all, then suddenly it hits you right between the eyes – wallop – a new recipe for Guacamole!

For me, life without Mexican food is no life at all. And the best part of any Mexican meal? The chips and guac that you get to enjoy as you become totally mesmerized by all the food porn on the menu.

My fave guacamole ever is the one I had on my first date with my husband at Dos Caminos in New York. They add bits of crispy bacon to their dip and bacon + guac = holy guacamole love – well I guess it did for me and my husband!

You should try my copycat recipe for Bacon Guacamole and Plantain Chips – it’s da bomb!

I mean, if you have a good guac recipe you really don’t want to risk deviating from it, right? That is, until I discovered this Mango Guacamole Recipe that sounded too darned delicious not to try.

Adding mango adds just the right amount of sweetness and is the perfect complement to the smooth and creamy taste of avocado. Add a touch of jalapeño, lime, and garlic, and you’ve booked yourself a one way taste ticket to orgasmic guacamole!

So get your guac on and add some tropical fruitiness to your favourite Mexican dip. Then when you’re done, why not pop over to the Arugula & Rocket Store and buy yourself the colourful Tovolo Paring Knives featured in this post!
