If you have never made homemade guacamole, don’t worry. I promise you it is not hard to do! It just requires a bit of chopping and such on your part and you will be amazed at the flavor you get. Today I’m sharing a recipe for Tropical Mango Guacamole which you can eat with tortilla chips or use to top fish, chicken, or pork, it is also a great addition to tacos and fajitas.
In Mexico, it’s common for people to eat mangoes every day, not only for their deliciously juicy flavor, but also for the health benefits they provide. One cup of mango contains 100 calories and a full day’s worth of vitamin C, along with vitamin A, fiber and more than 20 other vitamins and minerals, while excluding cholesterol, sodium and fat.
Mango salsa or mango guacamole is great with chicken, pork and fish, the primary proteins of Mexico. Mango slices balance out the starch of rice, beans and corn, and the simple flavor combination of mangoes, chiles, limes and salt is iconically Mexican.
In this tropical take on guacamole, the mango’s sweetness brightens the richness of avocado. To emulate the flavor and texture of Muñoz Zurita’s recipe, use caution when mashing the fruits to maintain bite-size cubes of creamy mango and avocado.
