Mango Guacamole

IMG_20140603_202013

When I was a kid I ate guacamole with anything. All the time. Because that’s what California kids do. Or basically anyone who like delicious things. But I was not a fan of avocados. I thought they tasted different (they don’t) and they were a funny texture (they aren’t if you like creamy deliciousness). I should have known I just liked when things were mashed up. But then I wised up and got awesome and became an adult (sort of) and have been consuming avocados in most things.

One of the hardest parts about living in a massive city is not having an avocado tree in my back yard. Or actually a back yard. So paying more than a dollar for an avocado feels like I’m being robbed. Even though I do it every week. Man, my life is hard. So when I had 1.5 avocados that we’re totally ripe and perfect, I thought, it’s totally guac time. This time I decided to sweeten it up with a mango I had lying around. Best decision. And this goes perfect with chips or tacos. Or just a spoon actually.

  1. I’ve been making my own version of this by mixing in a healthy scoop of Santa Barbara Mango and Peach Salsa (now owned and marketed by Sabra, the humus people, and available at most Kroger, Fred Meyer, or Smith’s stores) into the mashed up avocados. But yours is much better and obviously fresher. Thanks! Sorry about no avocado tree in Queens. Or a back yard…
