Spicy Pineapple Guacamole

This Spicy Pineapple Guacamole is the ultimate summer guac! Made with ripe avocados smashed with lime juice and spices, loaded with pineapple, jalapeño, garlic, tomato and onion.

One food you will always find in our house is avocados. I’m an avocado lover through and through. I love them on their own, in tacos and on sandwiches, but I think we can all agree, they best way to enjoy avocados is in guacamole! Nothing beats dipping tortilla chips into a mountain of fresh guac! 

With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner and summer following close behind, I wanted to share this new guac recipe with you! This Spicy Pineapple Guacamole is the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. The sweet, tropical flavor of the pineapple, paired with the hot, spicy flavor of the jalapeños just works so well with the rich, creamy avocados.

How ripe should my avocados be? 

 

Avocados can be frustrating. Sometimes it feels like we wait days for them to ripen and then all of a sudden they go from rock hard to mush overnight. If your avocados are too hard when you buy them try keeping them in a paper bag on the counter and checking on them everyday. If they seem too soft, put them in the refrigerator to help slow down the ripening. Personally, I like my guacamole best when it’s a little chunky, so I try to use them when they are just ripe and not over ripe. But a very ripe avocado will work as long as it has not started to turn brown. 

How to make Spicy Pineapple Guacamole

 

It’s really easy!

Start by smashing the avocados with a fork in large bowl. Add lime juice, salt and coriander and mix. Next add in the garlic, tomato, onion, jalapeños, pineapple and cilantro. Mix everything together. 

As for substitutions… if you would rather your guacamole be mild, leave out the jalapeños. You can also leave out the garlic, tomato and/or onion if you have any aversions to those ingredients. 

What to serve with Spicy Pineapple Guacamole

 

My favorite thing to dip into guacamole is definitely tortilla chips! Especially really salty ones, or even better the Tostitos Hint of Lime or Hint of Jalapeño chips for an extra flavor kick!  

Pita chips are a great option as well. 

You could also serve it with vegetables like carrots, cucumbers and celery. 

Instead of a dip, you could use it as a spread on bread or sandwiches. 

I also love a scoop of guacamole on a rice bowl, on top of tacos or as a nice addition to a salad

How to serve Spicy Pineapple Guacamole in a Pineapple

 

Serving Spicy Pineapple Guacamole out of a pineapple is not a requirement for this recipe, but it sure is fun and makes for a really nice presentation!

If you would like to try it, carefully slice the pineapple (including the crown) in half vertically. Choose which side you want to use for the bowl. Use a knife to cut a square about 1/2 inch from the edge of the pineapple, only press down about 1 inch into the flesh. Cut down the center of the square and then divide into 6 smaller squares (still not pressing down more than an inch). Use a spoon to scoop out the squares and form the bowl for the guacamole to sit. You can then use the pineapple you cut out as the pineapple in the guacamole.

Notes

*I like my guac to have some whole pieces or avocado, but if you like yours smooth, keep smashing until it is how you like it
