Apple Guacamole


What?  Yup, that’s right, apple guacamole!

It actually sounds more complicated than it is.  I basically make a traditional guacamole and add diced apples.  We’ve been making mango guacamole in the summer time for years.  I was recently making guacamole to bring to a party and I didn’t feel right adding mangos with snow on the ground, so I went for a fall fruit.  The result is something pretty special!  Give it a try for yourself, and let me know what you think!

Prep time:
15 min

Serves: 6


– 6 avocados

– 2 tomatoes

– 1 small red onion

– 1/2 cup cilantro

– 1 apple (honeycrisps work great)

– juice from 1 lime

– black pepper to taste

– 1 jalapeno pepper (optional)


Scoop the avocados from their skin and put them into a large bowl.  Dice the tomatoes, onion, cilantro, apple, and jalapeno, and add everything to the avocado in the bowl.  Juice the lime over everything, and add some black pepper to taste.  Using a large fork mash and mix everything together until it’s mixed well and gets really creamy.

It’s all in there, ready to mix!

We don’t eat chips, so we usually serve it with thickly sliced peppers, cucumber slices, carrot sticks, or occasionally toasted whole wheat pita.  It’s also great on top of chilli, or added to a home made veggie burger, or a lentil sloppy joe sandwich.  Seriously delicious!!

In the summer time try adding mango instead of the apple for another delicious combo!
