I hate to be a cliché, but yeah… I totally am.

It’s just that I adore Mexican food. And with Cinco de Mayo coming up and the fact that Wednesdays are perfect for sangria (did you know??)… well let’s just say that cold margaritas and crisp tacos and salty tortilla chips get me all hot and bothered. Take me out for Mexican and you.will.have.a.good.time.

Too much?

Anywho, I hate to admit it but I’m a bit of a guac snob. Don’t even try to mess with my cilantro, red onion, jalapeno, tomato and lime. Unless you are pushing it out of the way to hand me that necessary tequila shot.

 

But this past weekend I added mango. You know, that fruit that is juicy and sugary sweet in season or foul and sour when it isn’t ripe for the pickin’? Yes, that one. What’s that? You don’t like it? Well my friend, try and try again. I promise after buying $576 worth of mangos, you will eventually get a delicious one that will change your mind. Or maybe those things just happen to me. If all else fails, simply let it die in your crisper drawer for at least three weeks. Just when you think it is rotting away, it will be squishy and succulent and taste like candy.

Per.

Fect.

 

Then chop it up with some green stuff.

Mango Guacamole

makes about 1 1/2 cups

4 ripe avocados

1 medium tomato, chopped

1/2 cup chopped mango

1/3 cup chopped red onion

1 small jalapeno, seeded and chopped

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

juice of 2 limes

a big bunch of cilantro

Remove avocado meat and combine in a bowl with tomato, jalapeno, onion, mango and a bunch of torn cilantro. Add salt, pepper and lime juice and mix/mash until desired consistency is reached.

Okay. No more Mexican recipes until… tomorrow.

    Oh you and your tropical recipes! They make me want to escape NYC and go to my Florida hometown and drink a corona with lime! And look at hot dudes in board shorts. The business suits in Manhattan are only hot for so long :)

    This sounds delicious & I can’t wait to try it! Did you know that if you save the pit of the avacado and put it in your guac, it helps to keep the guac from getting extra green/brown?!

    You need to come to Cleveland and eat at Momocho. They have like 15 different kinds of gauc and you can order a sampler plater. It’s the best way to try out new versions without committing :-)

    Holy guacamole…that looks delicious! I hate to admit that I am a guacamole snob, too. So much so that I don’t even add tomatoes to mine. Just avocado, lime juice, red onion, serrano chilies, cilantro and kosher salt.

    That said, I happen to have a mango in the fridge, as well as the rest of the makings for this recipe…hmmmm- I think I hear my lunch calling me! ;-)

    My guacamole recipe is very similar, but I add in chili powder, garlic salt, cumin,
    But most importantly, crispy , chopped up bacon! It is the most obvious left out ingredient that I am laying claim to. One slice of bacon per avocado.
