Yield:
Serves 8 (serving size: about 1/3 cup guacamole and 6 chips)

Offering sweet and tangy notes, mangos balance perfectly against rich and creamy avocado. Try this guac as a dip with chips or as a topping for fish or chicken tacos. For a step-by-step guide to mango prep, see How to Cube a Mango, below.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 8 ingredients in a large bowl; toss to combine. Serve guacamole with tortilla chips.

Step 2

How to Cube a Mango

Step 3

If you know a mango's anatomy, it's easy to prep: The fruit has a flat, oval pit in the center that runs parallel to the "cheeks," which are the fleshiest part. The bottom (stem end) is squat, and the top, or "nose," is tapered. Here's how to cube it:

Step 4

Stand the mango on its stem end. Starting at the nose, and using the flat sides of the pit as a guide, slice off both cheeks.

Step 5

Score a 1/2-inch-wide crosshatched pattern into the flesh of each cheek, cutting to (but not through) the mango skin.

Step 6

Press the skin side to invert. Slice cubes from the skin. Or, without inverting, scoop out diced flesh with a spoon.

My teenager requested the avocado be more mashed next time.  But this was yummy as is.

TERRIFIC!

This is a great recipe for an alternative to traditional guacamole.  My husband couldn't get enough of it.  It was perfect appetizer before serving Fish Tacos with Lime Crema!

Yummy!

Great guac - I mashed the avocado and subbed a jalapeno for the serrano since I had a bunch on hand. Wasn't sure about the orange juice, but it worked - also gave me the idea to serve this with the Grilled Flank Steak with Chipotle-Orange Mojo recipe (same issue), which was a fantastic combo.
