Mango Guacamole.

TGIF – it’s party time! Two of my friends from college are visiting this weekend. We have big plans for a fancy dinner, vegging out, playing with pups, reminiscing about our years at Loyola, and drinking wine. I’m making a big batch of my famous mango guacamole to snack on as they arrive tonight. Also: these chocolate chip cookies.

Cannot even wait! I might just go make the guac now. Breakfast of champions.

I have little self control when it comes to dips – hummus, buffalo chicken, spinach artichoke, you name it. And I have ZERO self control when it comes to guacamole. It is, hands down, one of my favorite foods. In fact, Kevin and I make a meal out of guacamole on the regular. A big bag of chips, a big bowl of guac, some margaritas, and the couch.

Also zero control when it comes to margaritas, but that’s another story.

In our recipe, juicy mango livens up a bowl of traditional guacamole. Our fruity guacamole never stands a chance in front of a large crowd – or even just the two of us! Spiced with jalapeño and flavored with lime juice, you won’t be able to stop reaching for more and more of this chunky, creamy dip. Go pick up some ripe avocados because guacamole’s on the menu tonight!

Ingredients for Mango Guacamole

First thing to do? Peel, chop, squeeze all your guacamole fixings. You’ll need half of a jalapeño, juice of 1 lime, 1 small chopped tomato, and 1 peeled and chopped ripe mango.

You can control the spice! Leave out the jalapeño altogether or toss in the whole thing. I like a ton of mango chunks in our guacamole, so I always look for the largest mango I can find. Any size will be fine. Add more mango chunks, add less. This is your guacamole, so don’t be afraid to play around with the fixings!

Sometimes we even add cilantro and 1/4 cup chopped onion.

All of the guacamole fixings can be prepared in advance. Combine all of the ingredients (except for the avocado) in an airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Then, mash up your avocados and fold the fixings in. How easy is that?

You’ll need 3 ripe avocados for your mango guacamole. How to tell if avocados are ripe: give the flesh a light squeeze. The avocado will yield to moderate pressure, while still be slightly soft. Or you can test an avocado’s ripeness this way: remove the small brown stem off the top of the avocado. If it comes off easily and you can see green underneath, the avocado is ripe. If you see brown, the avocado is not ripe.

I usually buy firm avocados in the beginning of the week, set them out on the counter, and by Friday they are ripe enough for our guacamole nights.

You’re going to love this stuff. Each bite is super chunky and loaded with mangoes, a little spice, a little sweetness, and lots of creamy avocado. The best part? It’s so quick, which makes it an easy dish to serve for guests. It’ll take you a whopping 10 minutes to make and then another 2 minutes to devour the entire bowl. I don’t even know how I managed to resist it during the photo shoot.

Oh wait.

PS: my favorite chip to pair with our mango guacamole are multigrain tortilla chips. I love the multigrain variety by Late July.

Simple Mango Guacamole

Yield: serves 3-5

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Print Recipe

Super chunky guacamole gets a refreshing juicy twist with the addition of mango. We like our mango on the spicy side, but feel free to add more/less jalapeño as instructed. Eat it with chips, put it on sandwiches, on top of salads, and burgers. Perfect in the summertime, springtime, Cinco de Mayo or anytime you're craving this comforting dip.


  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1 mango, peeled and diced
  • 1 small tomato, diced
  • half of a jalapeño pepper, diced1
  • juice from 1 lime
  • salt, to taste
  • Optional: 1/4 cup diced onion and chopped cilantro, to taste


  1. Mash the avocado in a large bowl. I like to leave a few large chunks because I prefer chunky guacamole. Fold in the mango, tomato, and jalapeño until combined. Squeeze the lime juice on top and stir until combined. Salt to taste. We usually add 1/8 teaspoon of salt.
  2. Serve immediately with tortilla chips.
  3. Make ahead tip: All of the guacamole fixings can be prepared in advance. Combine all of the ingredients (except for the avocado) in an airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator for up to 1 day. Then, mash up your avocados and fold the fixings in.

Additional Notes:

  1. Add more/less chopped jalapeño, depending how spicy you like your guacamole.

    Ok…thank you for the idea of the firm avocados at the beginning of the week! I never do that, and then I end up running to the grocery store on the weekend for avocados about a zillion times! We take anything avocado seriously here…we <3 them!
    This guac loves heavenly. The hubs has a major obsession with mangos so he is going to die.
    We may just eat it for dinner….and that's all. Because I also have zero dip self control!

      Haha we take avocados very seriously around here too. 😉 Definitely stock up in the beginning of the week.

    Christineposted March 21, 2014 at 9:25 am

    Weird…I was planning on making guacamole tonight…I am going to see if I can find a mango on my lunch hour as that would make a great addition. I bake a spaghetti squash (sprinkled with cumin) and top with black beans, guacamole, fresh chopped onion & tomato and salsa. It looks like a mess on the plate but SO GOOD.

    Thanks for the new twist on guacamole! Can’t wait to try it tonight!

    Oh, I also finally took your tip and froze some cookie dough balls. I had some of your chocolate chip cookie dough in the fridge waiting to be baked and I kept “sampling” it so last night I rolled it all into balls and froze it. I’m actually thinking that one ball per day might be a nice snack at work…ha ha ha!


    • Sallyreplied on March 21st, 2014 at 10:28 am

      Haha cookie dough ball “snacks” during work would definitely help me get through the day. I have got to try your tex-mex style spaghetti squash recipe Christine! Right up my alley.

      Hi Sally – just wanted you to know that I did indeed make this on Friday night and it was more amazing than I imagined. I am making it again tonight (spaghetti squash again!) and will use more jalapeno and more mango – I held back a little as I didn’t know if my husband would not like the mango in it but he raved about it. The creamy sweetness of the mango is so good with the heat of the jalapeno.

      Thank you again for sharing the recipe – and so glad you had a great weekend with your friends!

    Sally– another awesome recipe, thanks! I wouldn’t have thought to add mango to guacamole. But why not?!

    My college girlfriends and I get together a couple times a year for “Rosemont Wine Club” get-togethers. We drink wine, eat snacks, and catch up. We’re meeting tomorrow night, in fact, so this is extra timely since I was just planning our menu! This recipe sounds delightful and I happen to have a bag of avocados ripening on the counter as we speak! I’m extra excited that it’s vegan-friendly because one of my pals is vegan and I always worry about coming up with tasty things she can enjoy, too.

    Do you have any favorite snack recipes–better still if it’s a vegan recipe– to pair with red wine? (This time around, I made our theme “insulting-named reds” – things like Fat Bastard or Arrogant Frog or Gnarly Head. haha)

    PS- Have you had peach margaritas? A local Mexican restaurant has them seasonally and they are THE. BEST. Also, Applebees’ Perfect Margarita is delish!

    Best- Natalie Munroe


    • Sallyreplied on March 21st, 2014 at 2:52 pm

      Hey Natalie! Peach margaritas sound amazing. Maybe I can try my hand at making some in the summertime. Funny you mention the insulting named reds theme for your wine club tonight. I had some “Rotten B*tch” red wine last weekend and I was cracking up every time I looked at the bottle haha! For red wine pairings – I don’t really have the best recipes for snack type foods. But feel free to browse a few snack recipes yourself:


      • Natalie Munroereplied on March 24th, 2014 at 9:40 pm

        Hi again! Just checking back in to say I tried this recipe for my get-together and it was a hit: fresh, flavorful, and aesthetically pleasing! I also tried your roasted chick peas with cinnamon-sugar. I followed the directions but some of the sugar burned so I had to chuck the tray, but they did get nice and crispy. I will probably try them again, but either in a savory preparation or I’ll wait longer to add the sugar mixture (or reduce the oven heat for that second go-round.) thanks for the recipes!

    We make quacamole a lot in So Calif. I make it a head, mix all ingredients except the lime juice and chopped tomato. Top quac with lime juice and chopped tomato. Place in frig. until your ready to serve, then stir all together. Thank you for a new twist of adding mango.
    Also, I freeze avocados, we get a lot from our neighbors tree. Peel, cut in half, remove seed roll in lime juice or lemom, and place in zip lock freezer bag. Try to remove as much air from bag as possible. When ready to use, thaw and mash in bag.
