Caribbean Guacamole

Avocado is a favorite of mine in all forms. I especially enjoy cooking with avocado oil. This guacamole from the California Avocado Industry is a nice twist.

Caribbean Guacamole

  • 4
    ripe, Fresh California Avocados, peeled and seeded.
  • 1 Tbsp.
    fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup
    finely diced fresh mango
  • 1 cup
    finely diced fresh pineapple, well-drained
  • ¼ cup
    shredded coconut (unsweetened)
  • 1 tsp.
    crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp.
    salt

    Method:

    1. Coarsely mash (DO NOT PUREE) Fresh California Avocados.
    2. Fold in remaining ingredients.

    Serving Suggestions:
    Place guacamole in the center of a platter surrounded by sweet potato or plantain chips.

    Beverage Pairings:
    Serve with fruity rum cocktails.

    *Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.

    Guacamole is best made as close to serving as possible. For short-term storage, seal in an airtight container with a piece of plastic wrap directly against the surface of the guacamole and refrigerate.

    Hola Maralyn, This recipe looks tasty and different with a new ingredient – coconut. Tonight we are having another favorite guacamole… spicy Rancho La Puerta
    guacamole made with the healthy addition of fresh garden peas! Either way,a winner. However, no rum cocktails or margaritas here, maybe a virgin sangria!Ole

  2. Thanks Brenda. I’m looking forward to tonight and certainly enjoyed Rancho La Puerta’s version.
