I first encountered fruity guacamole at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants, Zocalo, a few years ago. The Husby and I quickly devoured it. There was just something so perfect about the balance of savory and sweet that made it irresistible.
So when both avocados and mangos were on sale at the grocery store, and there was a football game to be watched on tv, I knew I had to tackle (no pun intended) this treat.
While it didn’t turn out entirely like the one at Zocalo (I think they might use papaya), it was still really good. I liked the crunch of the apple against the creaminess of the avocado. I think next time I might add pomegranate seeds and serve with plantain chips instead of tortilla chips.
