Orange Mango Guacamole




I am known for more inventive variations on Guacamole, like my infamous banana guacamole. Having a reputation for this  and a flair for "creative" concoctions, as my brother would say, I came up with an Orange Mango Guacamole that is a twist on the classic and is perfecto for summer. 


It's great on sandwiches, on top of fish, grilled chicken or even a piece of crusty grilled bread. Also, I like to switch up my chip options every once in awhile (especially when I run out of them because I ate them all) and I decided that oyster crackers might be a nice change up.   

Orange Mango Guacamole


Ingredients

3 large ripe avocados
1 small shallot, diced
1/2 to 1 fresh serrano chile, seeded and finely chopped2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, plus a few leaves for garnish
About 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 medium ripe mango, peeled, flesh cut from the pit and diced
1/2 Roma tomato, diced
Salt

Instructions

1. Cut and dice the avocado aka "Alligator Pear". 
2. Add the flesh into a large bowl.  Coarsely mash the avocado with a large fork.

5. If not using immediately, cover with plastic wrap pressed directly on the surface of the guacamole so it doesn't turn brown and refrigerate - preferably for no more than a few hour
6.  When you're ready to serve, scoop guacamole into a serving bowl and garnish with the remaining diced mango and cilantro sprigs. Enjoy.

Sounds delicious and what a great way to use up all of those little bags of oyster crackers! One question…how do you get the guacamole on the oyster cracker, they are so small.

As you enter the Chowista site prepare to take your senses on a vacation. said...

Thanks for your comment!! I appreciate you taking a look at my blog. I like to twist the crackers apart like an oreo and use the hollow inside to scoop the guacamole up. You're right though they are small ;)
