This creamy-chunky mango guacamole recipe is the perfect party appetizer with creamy avocado, chunky-sweet mango, and spicy jalapeno peppers. Perfect for any gathering.

It’s guacamole time! Yes! I love that phrase. It sings in my head like a fun song, readying me for great times, and good tastes, ahead. “It’s guacamole time!”

Jalapeno Mango Guacamole Recipe

The thing about guacamole is, it’s one of life’s greatest foods. With only a few ingredients, it is a perfect combination of flavor you’ll never tire of.

Every part of the world has their perfect combination – Italy has their pesto (try our Spicy Chicken Pesto Pasta), Puerto Rico has their pique (try our Pique Recipe), and Mexico has their guacamole.

Classic guacamole uses only 4 ingredients – avocado, lime juice, cilantro and salt. That’s really all you need to form perfection. See our recipe: Perfect Homemade Guacamole.

But still! There are so many ways you can build on the flavor of traditional guacamole. As perfect as it is, there are a number of ingredients that compliment and even enhance the flavor, depending on what you are looking to achieve. Looking for spicy? Add chili peppers, but even there you have numerous choices.

Do you want roasted peppers? Raw? Mildly spicy? Superhot? Care for red onions? So many options!

What if you’re looking for something a bit sweeter with a decent level of spiciness? Something GREAT for a party, but something you might also smear over the top of a burger for the next cookout? Here you go: Mike’s Mango Guacamole Recipe with Roasted Jalapenos.

Yes!

Jalapeno-Mango Guacamole – Recipe

Let’s talk about how we make some awesome guacamole, shall we?

Mango Guacamole Ingredients

  • The Avocados. Use 2 very ripe avocados, soft, yet not squishy. Softer avocados make very creamy guacamole.
  • Lime Juice. I use the juice from 1 small lime, but start with half a lime and adjust to taste from there.
  • Cilantro. ¼ cup loosely packed cilantro is good, but again, adjust to your own preferences. Some people don’t like too much cilantro. 
  • Mango. I use ¼ cup diced mango, though you can add a bit more if you’d like.
  • Jalapeno Pepper. Completely optional, my friends, for a nice and spicy version. I usually use 1 jalapeno pepper,  diced.
  • Salt. Salt to taste. Only add in a few dashes first, then taste. You can always add more in, but you can’t take it out!

How to Make Mango Guacamole – the Recipe Method

  1. First, peel and remove the pit from the avocados and add them to a large bowl.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and mash with a fork until fairly smooth.
  3. Adjust for salt and serve.

BOOM! Done! Bring on the chips! This makes about 2.5 cups, so plan accordingly. I love this stuff. 

Recipe Tips & Notes

  • Great Twist on Classic Guacamole. We’re only adding a couple ingredients to the basics, in this case diced mango and diced jalapeno peppers. Mango brings just a touch of sweetness, but not too much, along with a textural element that slightly contrasts the creaminess of the mashed avocados.
  • Feel the Burn. You’ll feel a touch of heat from the jalapenos on your tongue when you take a bite, subtly so, and you’ll certainly detect the mild sweetness on your taste buds. The jalapeno peppers will let you know they’re there right away, not only with their touch of heat, but with the their raw, crunchy texture and flavor.
  • Roasted or Raw Peppers? You might opt to roast and peel your jalapeno peppers before dicing them, which, by the way, would be AWESOME! You will achieve a smoky roasted flavor, though the peppers will be much softer, closer to the consistency of the mango. For this recipe, I did not, and opted to keep them raw for the crunch factor.
  • Serving It Up. As I mentioned, this would be an outstanding appetizer or party food, where you can easily serve it up in a bowl alongside a bag of corn tortilla chips. Serve it up for Cinco de Mayo!
  • Turkey Burgers. Consider this recipe as a topping for some grilled burgers. Turkey burgers LOVE guacamole on top of them, and your stomach will LOVE said burgers with guacamole, like these recipes: Jerk Turkey Burgers or my Guacamole Turkey Burgers. So good! 

In the meantime, enjoy your guacamole, and feel free to peruse all of our other Homemade Guacamole Recipes.

Enjoy!
