Veggin’ Out: Mango Guacamole

The Veggin’ Out series is all about easy (yet still delicious) recipes – made for lazy days.

For Cinco de Mayo, I’m whipping up some Mexican-inspired meals. This easy guacamole recipe is sweet and citrusy, perfect for topping off a spicy enchilada or just for dipping with corn chips. (It’s also best when served with a margarita!)

Mango Guacamole

2 ripe avocados
1 ripe mango, diced into small pieces
1/2 cup of your favorite salsa (I like Trader Joe’s Pineapple Salsa for this citrus version)
1/2 lime
Cilantro and salt to taste

  1. Scoop avocado meat into a bowl. Mash with a fork to desired texture.
  2. Add salsa, mango pieces and cilantro (if you like cilantro).
  3. Squeeze the juice of half a lime onto mixture.
  4. Stir and taste. Add salt if needed.

*Guacamole tip: squeezing lime juice onto any guacamole you make will not only add nice flavor, but will also help protect your guacamole from turning an unsightly brown color that naturally occurs with oxidation.
