I recently had a tropical guacamole at a local Mexican restaurant, and absolutely fell in love with it. It has a little sweetness, a little crunch, and of course a bit of heat. Perfection.
2 ripe avocados, mashed
1 fresh mango, cut into bite sized chunks
1 fresh papaya, seeded, flesh removed and cut into bite sized chunks
1 – 2 tablespoons of fresh cilantro, finely chopped (I like to really taste my cilantro, so I go with 2 tablespoons)
juice of half of a lime
salt to taste
handful of raw or roasted cashews (I prefer raw, but roasted are great in this also)
1 tablespoon diced jalapenos (you can omit this if you’re sharing with the kids)
Mix together your avocados, cilantro, and jalapenos (if using). Add your mango, papaya, and cashews, and carefully fold them in to the avocados. Add the lime juice, then taste for seasoning. Add salt to your liking (I just use a small pinch). Serve with your favorite tortilla chips or dipping vegetables!
