Mango Pineapple Guacamole

Fresh & fruity Mango Pineapple guacamole is the perfect summertime appetizer. Avocado is still the star but we’ve added it with summer’s bounty of mangoes and pineapple for a lighter, sweeter, but still with a kick, variation.

I thought for a long time when someone mentioned guacamole that there was only one kind and that was that. I mean, I absolutely love Classic Guacamole, it’s one of my favorite and most popular recipes, but sometimes I like to change things up and summer seemed like the perfect time to do just that.

We’ve been getting some delicious mangos from our tree and my husband has been making his famous Mango Coladas (which are over-the-top fantastic) while I’ve been enjoying Coconut Mango Smoothies for my daily breakfasts, but we wanted another way to enjoy our tree’s harvest.

I was pleasantly surprised to see some really interesting variations on guacamole while searching the web and they gave me the idea that fruit added to guacamole was a great combination. Now why didn’t I think of that?! Now that I know how versatile avocados are, I’ll be experimenting to see what add-ins I like best. Of course, my husband is all for it because guess who gets to taste test them all. lol

This mango pineapple variation today has a wonderfully sweet taste that is offset by the kick from the jalapenos and dash of cayenne pepper. It is great to serve at cocktail parties or even a wine tasting. Better yet, you can use it everyday as a substitute for mayo on a sandwich or to kick up a grilled cheese. Whatever you use it, you’ll love it!
