Are you as obsessed with guacamole as I am? It tastes amazing (obviously), and it’s rich in healthy fats, potassium, and fiber. Even better, it’s so easy to make at home (and when you DIY, you know it doesn’t have unnecessary and unhealthy add-ins, like sour cream). If you don’t already have a go-to guac recipe, I highly recommend this one. The combination of smooth, creamy avocado, sweet mango, and spicy serrano chile is just perfect.
makes 3 cups
adapted slightly from Martha Stewart
2 ripe avocados, pitted, peeled, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 mango, peeled, pitted, and cut into 1/4-inch pieces
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (about 2 limes)
1 serrano chile, minced (ribs and seeds removed for less heat, if desired)
1/4 cup fresh corn kernels
In a medium bowl, combine avocados, mango, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, serrano chile, and corn. Fold gently, leaving texture chunky.
