Green Apple Guacamole

There are few people I have met that don't love guacamole. It's a common menu item at dinner parties I cook for and I love playing around with the different add-ins (for example, mango and pineapple). Adding apple provides a great crunch and tart sweetness, which balances nicely with the spicy jalapeno. Serve this as an appetizer with chips or scoop it on top of chicken tacos for a perfect summer meal. 



1. Place avocado flesh in a large mixing bowl and mash with a potato masher.


2. Add apple, jalapeno, onion, lime zest/juice, cilantro and salt and stir to combine.


3. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve blue corn chips on the side for dipping. Keep any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
