Mango Guacamole (another 4th of July candidate!) - Vegan/GF











The Trim Tart loves guacamole, and any small twist on the regular is fun.  This mango guacamole is easy to make, delicious and healthy.  You can get creative by reserving the shells of the avocados and mango and using them for a beautiful presentation.


Mango Guacamole
Prep Time: 0 hr 25 min | Cook Time: 0 hr 0 min | Makes: 6 servings

Ingredients:

  • 3 avocados
  • 1 mango, chopped
  • 1/3 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup cilantro (or chives, or mixture), chopped
  • 1/2 jalape├▒o pepper (more if you can take the heat!), seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 lime, seeded and finely chopped lime (2 if you like citrus flavors to be more dominant)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


Directions:

1. Cut avocados in half; remove pit. Scoop out avocado, saving shells. Place in a medium-sized bowl.

2. Cut mango, also keeping shells.  See here for Mango Cutting 101 instructions!




 3. Chop all other ingredients and toss into bowl. Mix together with fork until blended.







I scooped out lime by first cutting lime in half, then cutting around entire lime half like first photo.  Then I cut a "t" through the diameters to create quarters.  This allowed me to scoop out lime pulp with a spoon.






4. Spoon guacamole into reserved shells. Garnish with cilantro, and serve on platter. Serve with blue tortilla chips and extra lime slices.
