Yucateco Guacamole

Serves 2-4

2 Ripe Avocados
White Onion
Kosher Salt
Fresh Lime Juice
Red Bell Pepper
Ripe Mango
Red Onion


Combine 1 teaspoon white onion, 1 teaspoon chopped Cilantro, 1 teaspoon chopped jalapeno and a sprinkle of kosher salt in a bowl and muddle until it becomes a paste.

Combine large diced avocado, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and the juice from half of a fresh lime to the paste. Fold until the paste is incorporated into the avocado. Some chunks of avocado should remain.

Top with a mixture of diced mango, bell pepper and red onion.

Add finely diced habanero pepper to taste.

Sprinkle fresh cilantro on top.
