Jalapeno-Mango Guacamole


Avocadoes are one of those luxurious fruits (yes, yet another fruit often thought to be a vegetable) that gives class to nearly any meal. Creamy, nutty sweet and refreshing — it’s versatility is far and above many other foods. Let’s not mention how ridiculously nutritious they are.

Guacamole is a salad that is said to have originated with the ancient Aztecs and has long been assimilated into non-Hispanic cuisine on this side of the Atlantic. The staple blend of avocado, tomatoes/tomatillos, onions and lime juice is refreshing and nutritious. We are happy to present this summery twist on this refreshing staple salad:

What You’ll Need

4 ripe avocadoes

2 green onions very very finely chopped

1 English Cucumber finely grated save 3-4 slices

2 tbsp lemon/lime juice

1 tbsp FlavourFull Creations Spicy Jalapeno Mango Seasoning

2 tsp Salt

1 small mango (ataulfo suggested)

Instructions

1) Peel, split and dice avocadoes and add lemon/lime juice. Mash well with a potato masher.

2) Once well mashed add finely diced green onion and grated cucumber then continue to mash until the ingredients become essentially homogenised.
