What Makes This Guacamole Dip So Delicious?

Guacamole is an avocado-based dip. It is traditionally made with creamy avocado, lime juice, and cilantro. But it is also extremely versatile. Avocado pairs well with both salt and sugar. This makes it the perfect base for a sweet and salty summer dip. Different fruit options that mix well into guacamole include strawberries, peaches, pineapple, and mango.

This recipe for mango guacamole combines the elements of classic guacamole with juicy mango and tangy feta cheese. It’s the perfect sweet and salty cold dip for summer!

What You Need to Make Guacamole with Mango

  • Avocado – You can’t have guacamole without fresh avocados!
  • Mango – This recipe is best with fresh mango! Find ripe mangoes by gently squeezing the fruit. If it has a little give, it’s ripe!
  • Chunky Jarred Salsa – Adding salsa to guacamole is cheating a bit, but it makes the process of preparing homemade guacamole a little easier. You don’t have to cut any peppers or tomatoes!
  • Red Onion – Finely diced red onion adds a slightly spicy and peppery flavor to the dip.
  • Garlic – Use fresh minced garlic or jarred minced garlic for this guacamole. It adds so much delicious flavor.
  • Cilantro – Chop fresh cilantro with a knife or using herb scissors. If you aren’t a cilantro fan, then you can skip it.
  • Fresh Lime Juice – Add a little acidity and citrus flavor to the guacamole with freshly squeezed lime juice. You may also use bottled lime juice.
  • Feta Cheese Crumbles – The feta cheese adds a salty, tangy, and creamy flavor to this dip. It amplifies the taste and sends this delicious guacamole dip over the top.
  • Salt and Pepper – Since avocado doesn’t have a strong flavor, adding salt and pepper to guacamole is necessary. But with the other ingredients, like jarred salsa and feta cheese, you may need to adjust how much you add based on your personal preferences.

How to Make Mango Guacamole

Creating a homemade mango guacamole is simple and doesn’t take much time. The most time-consuming part is cutting the fresh ingredients!

Prepare a Simple Guacamole

First, cut the avocados in half, remove the pit, and then scoop out the avocado flesh inside. Add the avocado to a large bowl. The trick to good guacamole is using ripe avocados.

Next, finely dice the red onion and add it to the bowl. Then add minced garlic. Fresh garlic tastes best, but I hate peeling garlic. So I opt for jarred garlic. It has the flavor of fresh garlic without any of the work!

Fresh guacamole also calls for fresh limes. You can use bottled lime juice, but fresh tastes better. I also like to add a little bit of lime zest to my mango guacamole for a little extra kick.

Add salt and pepper next.

Finally, mash the ingredients together in the bowl using a fork. A potato masher also works well!

After the plain guacamole is finished, add the diced mango, chopped cilantro, and feta cheese crumbles. Use a spoon to stir the guacamole dip to combine it.

Serve this delicious mango guacamole with your favorite tortilla chips and enjoy! It’s a refreshing summer dip.

Try it with strawberry peach sangria or a grapefruit margarita!

FAQ’s

How Do I Find a Ripe Avocado?

Avocados with a darker outer appearance are most likely ripe. But the key to finding a ripe avocado is to give the avocado a squeeze. A ripe avocado will yield to firm, but gentle pressure. Remember, the perfect avocado should be slightly soft, not mushy. If the avocado is squishy then it is overripe and not great for eating.

How Do I Cut a Mango?

Mangos have a large oblong pit in the center. This pit makes them a bit tricky to cut. Start by peeling the mango. Not everyone peels the fruit first, but I find that easiest. Next, cut the sides of the fruit away from the pit. Then cut the sides into very small chunks. Just be careful while cutting because the fruit is very juicy, so it’s slippery!

Can I Make This Spicier?

Absolutely! Make a spicy mango guacamole with 1-2 diced jalapenos added to the recipe! Or use a spicy jarred salsa.

How to Store Leftover Mango Guacamole

Store leftovers in an airtight container. But before adding the lid, gently press a piece of plastic wrap over the guacamole. Cover the entirety of the dip. This helps protect the guacamole from any air inside the container. Avocado turns brown when exposed to oxygen, so plastic wrap creates a barrier to protect the guacamole.

Store the guacamole for 1-2 days in the refrigerator.
