Servings: 
4

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped mango
  • 1/2 cup cubed jicama
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 large ripe avocados
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed
  • 2 small scallions, chopped
  • 1 pinch chili powder

Preparation

  1. Peel and chop the mango and jicama in small, even pieces; sprinkle with a teaspoon of lime juice and reserve.
  2. Halve the avocados and remove the pits; scoop the flesh into a medium bowl. Mash coarsely with a fork, then add the remaining tablespoon of lime juice, salt and garlic and mix. Stir in the scallions.
  3. Spread the guacamole in a small serving bowl. Sprinkle mango and jicama on top of the guacamole, then dust with chili powder. Serve immediately with chips or quesadillas.

Serving Suggestion

This is a fantastic dish to serve at a party; just double (or triple) the recipe and use a wider bowl or small casserole dish. The crunchy jicama, sweet mango and creamy avocado are a delicious topping for tostadas and quesadillas, too.
