Hi everyone, Jack here again. Super Bowl Sunday is right around the corner and you know what that means? Dip! Even though I’m not traditionally in love with avocado, I love the way Jeanine makes guacamole, and plus, nothing says “go team” like go-ji, right? Right?
Now you may be thinking “oh, Jeanine has Jack writing this because he’s a football man or something.” Well, I have to admit, team sports are not my thing. Three things that ARE my thing, and the reasons I’m manning this post, are Super Bowl parties, food dipped in other food, and goji puns.
This mango guacamole is as stealthily healthy as a Super Bowl snack gets. The goji berries are a bit of a secret weapon here, as they plump up and become really tangy and sweet. Along with the mango and lime, they also really cut through the thickness of the avocado, so everything still feels light. Plus, the goji berries help to turn your Super Bowl snack into a Super Bowl super food.
Love those puns.
If you’re a fan of this mango guacamole recipe…
- 3 ripe avocados
- juice of 1-2 limes
- coarse sea salt
- 1 ripe mango, diced
- ⅓ cup dried goji berries
- ⅓ cup diced red onion
- ½ - 1 jalapeño, chopped
- handful of chopped cilantro
- tortilla chips
- Place goji berries in a small bowl with a bit of water for just a few minutes until they plum up.
- Remove the avocado pits and scoop each avocado into a medium bowl. Add generous squeezes of lime and plenty of sea salt. Lightly mash the avocado with the back of a fork.
- Stir in chopped mango, goji berries, red onion, jalapeño and cilantro. Add salt and pepper (and more lime if necessary), to taste. Serve immediately.
