FAMOUS MANGO GUACAMOLE
3 large hass avacados, perfectly ripened
1 medium ripened mango, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 medium size tomato, chopped
1/2 medium size red onion, diced
1/4 cup of freshly chopped cilantro
The juice of 1/2 lime, freshly squeezed
1/2 tablespoon of good quality balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
Start off by buying perfectly ripe avocados. Hass avocados. This is essential in order to make a good guacamole. Unfortunately the avocados we have grown locally in Florida are not as creamy and flavorful as the delicious little guys from Mexico.
|Perfectly ripped avocados should be a brown/charcoal color.|
*Side note: To check if an avacado is perfect ripe, the skin should be a dark brown/charcoal color (not green) and should be somewhat soft to the touch. You should be able to gently squeeze the avocado and it should feel evenly ripe all around. Put it back if one area of the avacado is much more soft than the other areas. This means there is a bruise in the avocado (similar to a bruise in any piece of fruit) and it will be brown in that spot. Since the Mexican avocados are so small it's important to be able to use all of it or else you wont have enough avocado to make a successful guacamole.
