Apparently tomorrow, November 13th, is National Guacamole Day. I’m not quite sure who coins these days but, if it gives me another excuse to make and celebrate guacamole then, I’m happy.
It’s hard to believe 3 years ago I had never even purchased avocados from the store. Now I feel as though they’re staples on my kitchen counter. It’s also rare that you’ll find me without one or two avocados ripening in a brown paper bag in the pantry.
I still enjoy watching one of my first videos on “How to Make Guacamole”:

And, once you’re comfortable with basic guacamole and you’re ready to step up your game, you must try this flavorful recipe for Mango Guacamole:
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 Molcajete, add half of the diced mangoes 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.
