We are grilling again tonight, and it will be a mexican theme!

As an pre-grilling appetizer, I made another new guacamole. Would it surprise you to know it’s spicy? I made it a sweet and spicy, and the cool of the avocado goes perfect with the heat of the habanero.

Delicious and simple, just the way I like it.

mango habanero guacamole

2 avocados
1/2 mango
1 – 2 habanero peppers, finely diced*
juice of one lime
sea salt to taste

*Quantity based on heat preference

Purée mango in food processor or high speed blender, add water to thin if necessary. Mash avocados. Add mango, habanero, lime juice, stir until combined.

Serve with veggies and chips – we are having Food Should Taste Good blue corn – so good!

Pair with margaritas and you have a tasty Happy Hour at Home

Happy almost Friday!

I love the way you served it in a pepper. So appealing to the eye! I want a reason to have a party so I can copy you!

Yum! This is right up my alley. I wish I were cinco de mayo-ing. I dropped the ball this year.

I was just thinking about the phenomenon of food bloggers, how they must either be quick in posting or they must pre-celebrate holidays for content. :D

isn’t it fun? just picked up some new springy colors. it’s funny what blogging and food photography make you look for in stores… ;)

12 Holly @ The Runny Egg May 5, 2011 at 5:11 pm

I’m fixing myself a drink right now — I so wish it were Friday night (or that I was smart enough to take Friday off of work!)


13 spabettie May 5, 2011 at 5:25 pm

Cheers, Holly! :D I’m stopping after one (okay, maybe two!) after my month of no drinks! I have a busy busy day tomorrow!


14 Christine @ Merf In Progress May 5, 2011 at 7:46 pm

YEP – absolutely perfect, any day of the year!

Delicioso! I love spicy stuff. It’s fun eating with a fork in one hand, and a kleenex in the other :)


19 spabettie May 6, 2011 at 6:11 pm

yes – as long as it is flavorful and doesn’t just make my cry and kill all taste, I’m good! especially during ALLERGY season! ;)

I have yet to try the Skinny Girl brand, as much as I love Bethenny and love margaritas. However, I have ordered them in restaurants and really really like them. :)


21 spabettie May 6, 2011 at 6:06 pm

it’s really good, not sweet or overpowering. I liked it!


22 Vegiegail May 7, 2011 at 9:04 am

Mango in guacamole? I never would have thought of that, but I can’t wait to try it!


23 spabettie May 7, 2011 at 12:40 pm

you should, it’s a nice change! I’m partial to a very simple guacamole, but sometimes you have to mix it up! :D


24 Heather @ Kiss My Broccoli May 8, 2011 at 7:15 pm

Mango and habanero?! Yum! I am such a pansy when it comes to heat, but I trust you on the combo of the sweet mango and cool avocado! Oh an those FSTG chips are my absolute fave! The cheddar ones follow oh so closely behind!

Woooow. I would never thought of making mango habanero guacamole before but I am very curious to try it.


26 Michelle N May 10, 2011 at 7:06 pm

I used this recipe over the weekend – it is perfect! Thank you for sharing it.


27 Kendall November 13, 2011 at 8:14 am

mango habanero sounds so great together, and with the COOL of guacamole? I am making this today! (even if I have to use jar mango LOL)


28 spabettie November 14, 2011 at 7:15 am

yeah, I know! I miss the fresh mango too… should be just fine, though, AND… easier! you don’t have to cut it! :D enjoy!


29 Jake T February 3, 2012 at 2:06 pm
