During a cooking demonstration at a blogger conference recently, I participated in a Guacamole cook off by candle light, as it turns out, since there was a blackout at the Hotel!
The California Avocado Commission brought a couple of awesome Chefs who cooked for us and prepared an amazing table with a cornucopia of ingredients for us to use while creating our brand new versions of the classic dish.
We divided into various groups, each group had 5 minutes to brainstorm, and then everybody ran to the table to take the ingredients we wanted to make an out-of-this-world guacamole. Our group created a Mango Tango Avocado Guacamole and today I am going to share the recipe with you:
Mango Tango Avocado
- 4 Hass avocados
- 1/2 cup mango cut in small pieces
- 1/2 cup pineapple cut in small pieces
- 1/2 cup red onion, minced
- 1/2 cup cilantro, minced
- 1/2 cup tomatoes, cut in small pieces
- 1/3 cup cucumber
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1/3 cup dry cherries
- 1 lemon, its juice that is
- 2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
- salt to taste
In a medium bowl smash the avocados, add the rest of the ingredients, mix together, taste for salt and rice vinegar.

Hi Silvia! Love the splash of rice vinegar in there — will have to try that 🙂
I’ve never made guacamole with vinegar before, it was quite tasty!
I want to try this, Silvia! The only regret I have from that night is that we didn’t get to taste all of the guacamole from each of the groups. It was so wonderful to meet you!
