- 2 ripe avocados
- 1 ripe mango, diced
- 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced (adjust according to spice preference)
- Juice of 1 lime
- Salt to taste
- Tortilla chips, for serving
Begin by slicing the avocados in half lengthwise. Remove the pit and scoop out the flesh into a medium-sized mixing bowl.
Use a fork to mash the avocados to your desired consistency. Some prefer chunky guacamole, while others prefer it smoother.
Add the diced mango, chopped red onion, minced jalapeño pepper, and chopped cilantro to the bowl with the mashed avocado.
Squeeze the juice of one lime over the mixture. The lime juice not only adds flavor but also helps to prevent the avocado from browning.
Season the guacamole with salt to taste. Start with a small amount and adjust according to your preference.
Gently fold all the ingredients together until well combined. Be careful not to overmix, as you want to maintain some texture in the guacamole.
Taste the guacamole and adjust the seasoning if necessary. You can add more lime juice, salt, or even a bit more chopped cilantro if desired.
Transfer the guacamole to a serving bowl and garnish with additional chopped cilantro if desired.
Serve the mango guacamole immediately with tortilla chips for dipping. Enjoy this delicious and refreshing twist on classic guacamole!
If you have any leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Press a piece of plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the guacamole to help prevent browning. It’s best consumed within a day or two.
