Mango Habanero Guacamole – naturally sweet with a spicy heat, this updated twist on a classic guacamole just might be your new summertime staple! a quick and easy crowd pleaser!
Mango Habanero Guacamole
We are grilling again tonight, with a Mexican theme.
As an pre-grilling appetizer, I made another new guacamole. Does it surprise you in the least that this guac is spicy?
I did make it sweet and spicy, and the cool of the avocado is a perfect balance to the heat of the habanero.
Delicious and simple, just the way I like it.
As spring gives us sneak peeks into warm summer weather, we get outside as often as we can! As longtime Portlanders, we know the rain can and will return at any moment, so we take advantage of these gorgeous pre-summer days every time we get one.
Jalapeños AND Habaneros? Good thing we – and our friends – like the heat.
I did make a mild version of the guacamole, with less habanero. We also had other dips, snacks, cool drinks and … plain margaritas.
Yep. Plain margaritas are still good margaritas.
