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.
