If I were stranded on a desert island, I would want to be near an avocado tree. I could absolutely live on them and adore guacamole. Avocados have numerous health benefits and are extraordinary for skin and hair.
But, . . . there is guacamole and then there is KILLER guacamole. This recipe is in the KILLER category because it includes festive Caribbean fruits and tasty spices that will send you straight to heaven!
To make it taste the best, you want to find the tastiest avocados. Hass avocados are plentiful here in California and have the most buttery taste in the entire avocado world. Hass avocados are also grown in Chile. In Chile, they’re grown on hillsides and because of the mountains and other environmental conditions are protected from pests.
I found a small mango called Champagne Mango at the grocery store. If something has the words “champagne” attached to it, I’m there. Mango adds a zingy taste to the guacamole that really sets it apart. If you can’t find a mango try papaya instead.
Serve this festive dip with vegetables or chips. I found delightful and colorful chips made with vegetables shown in the image above.
Enjoy my recipe.
