A delicious guacamole that my mom used to make during the summer days when mangos were all over our hometown. It's sweet, tangy, and, like any good Mexican guacamole, spicy.

Tasty enough ~ made this exactly as written except that I only used 1/2 the quantity of serrano, because it's hotter than jalapeno (usually). Surprisingly, though, the guac was mild! It would've been better if I'd cut mango into tiny pieces. I refuse to waste the onion-flavored lime juice - use it in another guac, in a Bloody Mary, in a salad dressing, or in an Indian mint/cilantro chutney! Read More

Delicious. I've had mango salsa before and wasn't a big fan. This however is SO much better in my opinion. The mango flavor and texture blends very well with the rest of the ingredients. The ONLY thing I did differently was that I wanted to use my own peppers so I added some of my own dried to the onion and lime and let it rehydrate them. I didn't have any fresh peppers other than jalapeno and I didn't want to use those.:) Other than that I followed the recipe and won't change anything when I make it again! Thank you. Read More

This is a wow recipe. I made the mistake in not seeding the peppers before putting them in the food processor. WOW wholly Hot Chia-wa-wa!! But the sweetness of the mangos made a nice addition to flavor with the cilantro. I'd make this again but cut down on the pepper seeds. My 13 year old child loved it. Read More

This is a refreshing change from the usual guacamole. The amount of lime juice makes it fairly tart. I would probably reduce that a bit next time. I love love love the mango addition. Great recipe! Read More

Wow delicious! But easy too. My 7 year old daughter loved helping scoop the avocado into the food processor. The mango was a yummy twist. If you like more of a kick add another pepper. YUM!!! Read More

I'm not usually a fan of guacamole but this one changed my mind! I loved the smooth texture of the avocado and the chunks of mango throughout. Soaking the onions in lime juice took out the bite and the serrano chiles added just the right amount of heat. I can't wait to make it again! Read More

The mango is what makes this guacamole so special I think. They add a touch of sweetness and color and that unexpected flavor that makes everyone just rave about it. I think soaking the onion in lime juice must really take the raw bite out of it it was a brilliant thought. This recipe is a big hit in my circle of friends! Read More
