Mango Guacamole

Catching up from the weekend, friends? Read up on my fun-filled Fourth weekend, complete with homemade cupcakes & pizza, a trip tothe farmer’s market and a show at Wolf Trap, and plenty of good, old-fashioned family fun at the dog park.

As I mentioned in last night’s very late post, I went to a cookout yesterday at Amanda’s. It was really fun, and a good mix of people that I already knew (hi friends!) and people that I know now (hi friends!)

I made my mango guacamole and it was a big hit! The bowl was totally scraped clean by the end of the night, which to me is the true mark of success, hehe. Throughout the course of the evening I got talking about the blog, and several people asked if the recipe was posted anywhere here. Well, ask and you shall receive.

This sweet, savory, sassy dip is a sure-to-please party favorite. Let the tropical flavors of mango and lime transport you back to summer!

1/2 small red or yellow onion, minced
2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
Salt & pepper, to taste

1. Chop, dice, cube, etc. your avocados and mangoes. Juice your limes.
2. Combine ingredients.
3. Eat.

This is pretty much the easiest thing to make ever.

Chop, slice, dice, and juice your ingredients.

Do a little dance.

Make a little love.

Get down tonight.

I only ended up using the juice from one and a half limes, so I used the last half for garnish. Since I was making this for a party, I made enough to feed a small army. You can obviously easily halve this recipe (2 avocados, 1 mango) to make a more reasonable amount for regular consumption. Or, you know, you can still make the full amount and then just secretly eat half of it yourself. Nobody would blame you, and I promise I won’t tell. 🙂
