Guacamole’s main ingredient may be the avocado but adding a mango to the ingredient line up adds an interesting sweetness to the popular condiment for both Mexican dishes and the Super Bowl.
While you can certainly mash up the ingredients in a bowl, we prefer to be more authentic with our food experiences. Featured here in the IMUSA Molcajete. This piece is made from ultra-durable natural volcanic lava rock and where the mortar & pestle extracts essential oils from herbs and spices – dried and fresh. The weight of the stone provides stability and makes pounding a cinch and the rough surface provides a distinct texture to salsas and dips. This molcajete is large enough to grind up a party-size batch of guacamole, then mix and serve it in the same bowl.
IMUSA is working with celebrity chef ambassador George Duran (TLC’s “Ultimate Cake Off” and Food Network “Ham on the Street”) on recipes, cooking tips, expert input and more. Below is one of Duran’s recipe, an interesting twist to the classic guacamole.
What do you think? Is it wise to switch up classic recipes like guacamole or do you prefer the original recipe?
- 3 ripened avocados 3
- 1 ripened mango
- ¼ cup lime juice ¼ cup
- ½ cup cilantro ½ cup
- ½ cup white onion ½ cup
- 3 teaspoons salt
- In your IMUSA Molcajete, add half of the diced mangos and mash with the pestle into a pulp.
- Then add one avocado and mash into a pulp with the mango.
- In a separate bowl mix remaining ingredients, including mango, and add more lime juice if needed.
- Fold mixture with pulp inside Molcajete and serve with tortilla chips.
