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.

  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: serves 3-5
  • Category: Appetizers
  • Cuisine: American

Description

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.


Ingredients

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

Instructions

  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.

Notes

  1. Make Ahead Instructions: 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.
  2. Jalapeño Pepper: Add more/less chopped jalapeño, depending how spicy you like your guacamole.

  1. 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!

  2. Sally, you’ve hit home with this one. Not only could I make a meal out of guacamole, but I love your addition of mango! So perfect for spring – colorful and popping with vibrant flavors. Just lovely. Have a fabulous weekend! 🙂

  3. Looks like I’m eating Mexican and drinking Margs tonight!!!! Thanks for kick starting my carving Sally! 🙂

  4. I think you made this just for me 🙂

    Mango AND tomatoes…YES! And the little jalepeno. I love texture and kind of a smorgasboard of veggies in my guac and this is perfect! I’d love a bowl for breakfast 🙂 pinned

  5. Mango guacamole?! Oh my goodness gracious. This needs to happen (with some margaritas) ASAP! Yum. Pinned! Have such a fun weekend, Sally!

  6. 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!

    1. 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.

      1. Christine….that squash sounds superb! Will be making that ASAP…with some lovely mango guac on the side!

    2. 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!

      1. I KNEW this would be a hit, Christine! So glad you love this guac as much as we do. And that the mango is husband-approved!

    1. Thanks Jocelyn! I’m trying to keep a good variety on my blog. Though I do want to bake cookies everyday, it’s been fun sharing the savory recipes I enjoy too. I appreciate your comment so much! Have a great weekend my friend.

  7. “A big bag of chips, a big bowl of guac, some margaritas, and the couch” sound like my kind of evening! 🙂
    This guac with mangoes is BRILLIANT! I am for sure trying this recipe and vegging out at some point this weekend!

  8. This is such a bright and cheery recipe to wake up to, Sally! I love the addition of the mango to the guacamole — adding one of my favorite fruits to my favorite dip is one great idea! 🙂

  9. 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

    1. 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: https://sallysbakingaddiction.com/category/candy-snacks/

      1. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. I’m also powerless when it comes to margaritas and guacamole and now I think I know what I’m having for dinner tonight! The kids can have PB&J, the husband will be working late, and I’ll be catching up on TV with all of this deliiousness!

  12. TGIF is right!! I also have zero self control around guac. It is just too good! Your recipe looks amazing!! The mango in there sounds so good! Will have to try that next time I make a batch! Hope you have a great weekend, Sally!

  13. What a fun, tropical idea! I love that your recipe doesn’t have TONS of ingredients. Sometimes I feel like guacamole has a thousand things in it, and some avocado as an afterthought! Yours is all about fruits and vegetables, and that’s PERFECT in my book 🙂 I hope you have a great time with your friends!

  14. This sounds great. I’ll have to be brave & try to chop up a mango sometime soon! It’s funny, I haven’t really seen/noticed recipes for Mango Guacamole before, now this is the 2nd one I’ve seen this week! (The other one was from Sandwich King Jeff Mauro on Food Network.)

  15. Looks soooo good. I recently made a mango salsa (my new fave) and just made guacamole the other night. I almost finished the bowl myself. It’s dangerous for me to have around! Now I’ll have to combine the two…off to buy more avocados! 🙂
