Tropical Guacamole

Rated 4.0 based on 5 customer reviews


  • 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


  1. Mash avocado, lime juice, and salt together in a bowl with a fork until mostly smooth, retaining some chunks of avocado.
  2. Stir pineapple, cilantro, onion, serrano pepper, and orange zest through the avocado mixture.
Mealthy tip:

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
