- 3 Haas avocados
- 1 lime, juiced
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup minced ripe pineapple
- 3 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro leaves
- 3 tablespoons minced white onion
- 1 serrano pepper, minced
- 1 orange, zested
- Mash avocado, lime juice, and salt together in a bowl with a fork until mostly smooth, retaining some chunks of avocado.
- Stir pineapple, cilantro, onion, serrano pepper, and orange zest through the avocado mixture.
Try other fruit zests like lemon or lime for another citrus flavor. Instead of pineapple, try small pieces of fresh mango for a different tropical twist. One clove of thinly sliced garlic will bring a savory element to this fruity version of guacamole. Freshly cracked black pepper could also add a nice spicy tone.
What others are saying
Bernardo de la Vega says:
I loved this guacamole, for those of us who eat guacamole a lot you MUST add some different flavors and this was a great example of that. For me pineapple goes really well with guacamole and with meat, carnitas or al pastor (pork) tacos. This has a really good taste to it and highly recommend it.
Tal Levitas says:
What can I say, I'm a purist when it comes to my guacamole. I tried this but I don't love Pineapple in my guacamole. Serrano pepper certainly works for me and surprisingly the orange zest did too.
Jessica Scott says:
I was hesitant at first, but so glad I tried this recipe. The pineapple and guac actually tastes great together. This is really good guacamole, with a twist.
kat satterfield says:
I loved the serrano and zested orange but found the pineapple a little odd. I love it in salsa, but not guac. I have had with pomegranate seeds before so I know it's not a 'purist' issue as mentioned before.
Leah M says:
I've made this recipe twice, the first time with pineapple and the second time with mango. I definitely prefer the mango over the pineapple. Especially when paired with the serrano pepper. It was like enjoying a really delicious mango salsa with guacamole.
