What’s in My Mango Habanero Guacamole?

If you’re on the fence about adding both mango and habanero peppers to your guacamole, take a deep breath and relax because you are in for a treat.

The creamy avocado makes the perfect base for your dip and is the ideal flavor to offset both the spice of the habanero pepper and the sweetness of the mango. These three ingredients balance one another perfectly, with a little extra kick from the red onions and pepper.

Make Sure to Use Ripe Avocados!

We all know the pain of picking out the perfect avocado at your local grocery store and then missing that fleeting window of ripeness. This will help you make sure your avocado is ripe when you’re ready for it.

The ripest avocados typically have darker skins. So if you’re getting ready to make your tasty mango habanero guacamole soon, pick one that has dark skin. 

Once you’ve eyed the avocados and chosen a dark one, go ahead and give it a squeeze. The best avocados are soft. If it’s rock hard, give it a pass.

Once you’ve identified a promising avocado, take a look at its stem. Does it still have one? If it does, is it easy to remove? If it isn’t easy to remove, go ahead and leave it and move on to another avocado. If it falls away, you should see some light green inside and you’re ready to go.

If you can’t find a good and ripe avocado, don’t fret! I’ve got a trick for making your avocado ripen faster.

Once you’ve selected an assortment of almost-there-but-not-quite-ripe avocados, put them into a paper bag with a ripe banana. I’m sure you’ve found that ripened bananas tend to help other fruits ripen faster (whether you want them to or not).

Pairing your unripe fruit with a ripe banana is an easy and quick way to make sure your avocados are ripe and ready for your party!


Guacamole is one of the best foods out there. It’s healthy, delicious, and you’ll literally never get tired of the different ways you can change it up. 

This mango habanero guacamole is the perfect mix of sweet and spicy to spice up your next party!

Cuisine: Mexican
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Yields 6 Servings
The creamy avocado mixes deliciously with the chunky and sweet mango, not to mention the spicy habanero peppers! It’s perfect for whatever gathering you have planned. 

Ingredients 

  • cup (53 ⅓ g) red onion chopped
  • 4 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 habanero pepper can substitute with 1-2 jalapeno peppers
  • 4 avocados peeled and pitted
  • ¼ cup (4 g) fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 mango peeled, seeded, and chopped
  • ½ tsp Sea Salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper

Instructions

  • This is one of the easiest things to make because you toss everything into a bowl and, using a potato masher, mash it to the desired consistency that you like.
  • If you like really smooth guacamole, you can use a food processor to combine everything.
  • Serve at room temperature. 

Notes

Not a fan of Mangos. Try adding pomegranate arils
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup pomegranate arils (from about 1 medium pomegranate)

  1. We eat guac at least once a week – but I have never been too adventourious with it! I will have to dip into this recipe – adding mango sounds delightful.

  2. Guacamole tastes so much better when it is homemade. I don’t even like it store bought, but I do enjoy it when someone makes it right at home.

  3. 5 stars
    Mango habanero guacamole sounds incredible! I can definitely see us enjoying this in summer with crackers or crisps.
