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.
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.
- Coarsely mash (DO NOT PUREE) Fresh California Avocados.
- Fold in remaining ingredients.
Place guacamole in the center of a platter surrounded by sweet potato or plantain chips.
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.
