Hi guys!! Today is very special day. Not only am I sharing this seriously delicious Mango Guacamole (more on that later), but I’m also helping to celebrate Carrian from Oh Sweet Basil’s 30th birthday!! Because Carrian would rather give than receive she’s hosting a full weeks worth of giveaways.
As most of you know, I’m a contributor on her blog, so of course I wanted to help her celebrate, and let me tell you, she has some killer prizes, today just so happens to be a $1,000 Amazon gift card. Think of the things you could buy!
Just enter your information in the rafflecopter below, and a winner will be chosen later this week.

Now, on to guac!
While I’d describe myself as a guacamole purist most days, having a boatload of mangos left over prompted me to go off the beaten path a little bit.
Repeat…a little bit. I still kept most of the traditional ingredients; a little bit of red onion, cumin, lime juice, plenty of salt and of course, avocado, but threw a very sweet, but not too sweet curve ball with the addition of diced champagne mangos.
I was a little worried the combination of sweet mango and rich avocado might not work well, but those fancy Mexican restaurants are sure on to something, because it works perfectly.
Not much else to say, other than you guacamole lovers out there will rejoice once you try this variation. Plus today marks the end of tax season, for those of you that don’t know, my husband is a CPA and these last few months have been brutal, we pretty much never see each other in the light of day, so I’ve got to mosey on over to his work party to celebrate his FREEDOM!
Cheers! And don’t forget to enter the giveaway!
