Peach Mango Guacamole

Have you ever had the peach-mango salsa that Costo sells? That stuff is seriously good. So when I was making guacamole, I decided that if mangoes and peaches are good in salsa, they’d probably be good in guacamole too.  The power of deductive reasoning. 

This guacamole turned out to be delicious.   And I know I say that about everything I post but what you don’t know is that I only post the good stuff.  There are tons of things I make which fail and then I simply leave them off the blog. It’s like it never happened that way. It is good for my self-esteem.

But really, this guac is unordinary and slightly sweet and just really good.

Disfruta!  (That means enjoy in Spanish. You know, sticking with the theme here.)

Peach Mango Guacamole
  • 2 ripe avocados (should be buttery soft) 
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped (I like to use Roma tomatoes) 
  • ½ large, ripe mango 
  • 1/3 cup chopped red onion 
  • 1 small jalapeno, seeded and chopped 
  • 2 TBS peach preserves (apricot preserves works as well) 
  • 1 teaspoon salt (or more to taste) 
  • juice of 1 lime
Cut the avocados in half, remove the pit, and strip away the skin. Place the avocado meat in a large bowl along with the diced tomato, cut up mango, red onion, jalapeno, peach preserves, salt, and lime juice. With a fork, smash until desired consistency is reached.  Grab a handful of tortilla chips and dive in.


  1. It is really hard for me to imagine these flavors together. I'll take your word for it though. Sure looks good.

  2. Okay, this sounds soooo tasty! Can't wait to try!

    New to your blog; happy I found you!

  3. I've made guac a few times this week already, and wondered myself about adding a sweet element to it. Now you've given me the courage to try it out!

  4. Thanks for the comments. I promise a little sweetness goes great with the guac. You gotta try it, Cameron!
