Do you like fruit in your food?

I don't know how else to phrase that question, but do you know what I mean? Some people only like fruit on its own.

Personally I love fruit in many forms: salads, breads, cookies, even with cheesy sandwiches.

For those of you who don't care for the idea of it mixed in with your guac, I've already shared with you what I dubbed the “best ever guacamole” recipe.

This one comes with just a few tweaks!

My cousin Katherine and I share a love for pineapple and jalapeño pizza, and she is the person who told me about a guacamole version like this at Aldi's.

I don't know how I never thought of it before, but thank you Kat for inspiring me to make this!

As always, adjust to your taste buds!

Sizes for avocados, limes, and jalapeños all vary – as do personal preferences. So keep this in mind when mixing all the ingredients together if something seems too much or not enough.

When making a bowl of guacamole just for me, I usually add more lime juice and most of the mix-ins. I like a little extra crunch from onion in every bite.

I did not go as far as to serve it in the pineapple (like I tried with that smoothie) but how cute would that be for a party?

Ingredients

  • 3 medium avocados *see notes
  • 1 lime
  • 1 cup chopped pineapple (plus 1/2 cup for topping if desired)
  • 1 cup diced red onion
  • 1 jalapeno , diced (more or less to desired spice level)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • pinch of cayenne pepper (optional for extra spicy-ness)

Instructions

  • Add avocados and lime juice to a medium bowl and mash with a fork to desired consistency. Mix in the chopped pineapple, onion, jalapeno, cilantro and cumin. 
  • Add salt (and more lime juice if necessary) to taste, and top with more pineapple and a pinch of cayenne pepper if using.
  • Best served immediately. Serve with crackers, chips, or veggies.

Notes

Sizes for avocados, limes, and jalapeños all vary - as do personal preferences. So keep this in mind when mixing all the ingredients together if something seems too much or not enough.
  • My 3 medium-sized avocados (about 7 ounces each) made about 1 & 1/2 cups mashed. 
  • I like extra lime juice in my guacamole but it's good to start small with 1/2 a lime at a time, and tasting as you go.
