Sweet, Holy Guacamole!

Everyone loves guacamole. There’s no discussion about this. Find us one person who doesn’t love guacamole and we’ll call your bluff…they must be a robot! While everyone loves guacamole, everyone also has their perfect way of making it. Now that part, we agree, is debatable.

Some like it with more onions, others with more lime juice and some (may we dare say it) claim that great guacamole is made without cilantro…Yeah…guacward.

But we’re not here to debate which recipe is best. Instead, we would like to introduce a new recipe to your collection. Introducing: Pineapple Guacamole! This pineapple guacamole recipe, courtesy of the always creatively talented Ali at GimmeSomeOven.com, is easy to make, made with fresh ingredients, and adds The Perfect Pineapple® for a perfectly sweet and delicious twist:

  • 3 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
  • 1 jalapeno, stem and seeds removed, minced (add more or less to taste)
  • 1 1/2 cups diced fresh pineapple, plus extra for topping
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. coarse sea salt
  • dash of cumin


Mash together avocados, jalapeno, pineapple, onion, lime juice, cilantro, salt, cumin with a fork until well-mixed.

Serve immediately, garnished with extra fresh pineapple and chopped cilantro, served with corn tortilla chips.  Or cover the bowl with plastic wrap (so that the plastic is literally touching the entire top layer of the guacamole) and refrigerate.
