Mango guacamole

I got this wonderful recipe from Everyday Food program on PBS. What a wonderful and natural dip full of nutritious ingredients! It is also a perfect dip for summertime. 

With mango and avocado that have high content of beta carotene and omega-3 fatty acids... what else can we ask for?


  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice, (about 2 limes)
  • 1 Serrano chili, minced (ribs and seeds removed for less heat, if desired)
  • 2 ripe avocados, pitted, peeled, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 mango, peeled, pitted, and cut into 1/4-inch pieces

Peel mango and discard the skin. With a knife, slice off wide, flat part of fruit on both sides of pit. Trim flesh from pit (discard pit) Place parts cut side down; slice in half horizontally. Cut crosswise into thin strips; cut strips lengthwise into pieces.

In a medium bowl, combine avocados, mango, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, and serrano chile; season with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Fold gently, leaving texture chunky.

Serve with colorful tortilla chips for garnish.
