How to Make Grilled Mango Guacamole

1. Spray a grill pan with avocado oil and heat on the stove over medium-high heat for 2 minutes or until hot.
2. Grilled mangoes and onion slices for 1 to 2 minutes per side or until slightly charred. Remove from heat and cool.
Tip: If you are looking to switch up the flavor, pineapple would be a great swap out!
3. Cut mangoes into 1/4-inch-thick pieces and finely dice onions.
4. In a medium-sized bowl, combine mangoes, onions, avocados, juice of 1 lime, cilantro, and salt and serve.

How to Store Grilled Mango Guacamole
Guacamole can be stored for up to 2 days in the refrigerator for optimal freshness, but it’s best to be eaten within the first 24 hours.
To keep the guacamole from going brown, use a spoon and flatten out any air pockets, then take a plastic wrap or wax paper and push down until guacamole is covered. Finally, seal with an airtight lid.
