I love to keep Bush’s Beans stocked in my pantry. Especially with black beans, there’s always a recipe that I can make last minute that I can add a can or two of beans to.

In this case, last week, we had friends coming over for casual Mexican cuisine. Nice and easy, I threw a pan of enchiladas in the oven and whipped up a delicious guacamole dip. Which, by the way, I’m sure you already knew that an avocado is a piece of fruit, right? Seed in the middle … But what about strawberries? Seeds on the outside. It’s all so confusing to me …

Let’s just enjoy them and not worry about the details. :)

Bush's Black Beans

I love making fresh salsas and dips with fruit and veggies. Think of the fruits that you can add to guacamole, there really are no limits and it’s fun to create new flavors!

Fruits to add to guacamole:
Peach
Mango
Strawberries
Pineapple

We have a vast supply of avocados; we’ve been eating through them as quick as we buy them! We don’t grow them, but have just been buying them in bulk! They are so good for you and they’ve become a daily staple in our home.

Guacamole and mango

I’ve decided the perfect avocado is when you think it’s almost ready to eat, possibly not quite, but then you cut into it and it’s perfect. To me, there is nothing worse than a mushy avocado. I won’t even waste my recipe with one. It just ruins the overall texture and flavor.

BUT … for guacamole, use up the mushy avocados if you have any. I’ve noticed, too, that everyone has their own favorite flavors and recipe when it comes to guacamole.

The recipe I’m sharing today I used fresh pineapple. I promise, it’s worth making!

Enjoy!

What’s your favorite fruit to add to guacamole or salsa?

    It sounds yummy! I love mango paired with avocado.

    When I have a ripe avocado and not immediate use for it, I squish it up in a freezer bag with some lime juice and garlic salt. I squeeze all of the air out of the bag and lay it flat to freeze in the freezer. It stays green and thaws nicely in the fridge. When it’s thawed, I add whatever it is I want to add for some quick guacamole!

    I love adding “contraband” as my husband calls it to guacamole. I’ve never added beans or fruit and now I’m thinking…why not? Great idea!!
