Mango Guacamole

So I had been craving mango guacamole for a while. I'm not a huge fan of avocados either, but with mangos I love them. Anyhow, last week I bought all the ingredients to make the mango guac from scratch:

2 hass avocados
1 mango
1 medium red onion
2 serrano chiles
fresh garlic
2 limes

I had never made it before, but I figured it couldn't be that hard. I chopped up all of my ingredients and went for it.

Once I had all of the avocado chopped and in the bowl, I added the zest of both limes as well as the juice (so the avocados wouldn't oxidize). Then I added in the finely diced red onion and the garlic and gave it a stir. I saved the mango and the serranos for last. I gave everything a real good stir and that was it. I know some people like to blend or process their guac, but I really like the texture of a chopped one myself. The juice from the mango helped to soften the mixture too.

The final product was great. It tasted so fresh and had amazing flavor. It was perfect for our night in of playing games. It can definitely be doubled too in order to feed more people. 

I know lately my posts have been food food food. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't as passionate about it as I am with paper and fabric. It has just been really busy times. I have a show on Thursday where I will hopefully sell some items to raise money for Haiti relief. I like sharing recipes anyway though, and they still are handmade creations. Starting next week, I want to add make some more things to add to my etsy store. (Fingers crossed I can stay awake and concentrate to do just that!)


  1. I can't wait to try this! Sounds great.

  2. It is really flavorful! I am trying to come up with an excuse to create a gigantic batch.

  3. I love mango.. and this looks like one recipe I should try. I hope you have overcome all your challenges buy now. I am with you, having new projects to work on will defintely keep us sane in difficult times:D
