The Best Pineapple Guacamole

By Jannese Torres @delishdlites
Guacamole is already everyone's favorite dip, but when you add pineapple, it takes this fan-favorite to the next level. Try this recipe for a sweet and tropical twist on regular guac!

Avocados and I have a very special relationship. It may be borderline creepy obsessive, but I'm ok with that. If you learn nothing else from me, please, do yourself a favor, and learn how to make the most basic, and most glorious avocado-based dish, guacamole. Now, I'm fully aware of how emotional people can get about what constitutes a proper guacamole recipe. Frankly, I don't give a damn what the rules say. Do whatever you want! Don't like cilantro? Try subbing with basil. Not a garlic fan? Leave it out. Here's my version, which I have to say, is pretty freakin' awesome. But then again, I'd eat avocados out of a shoe. Don't judge me.

How To Know If An Avocadio Is Recipe?

Don't know if your avocado is ripe? Here are a few indicators (thanks!

* Green - Needs Ripening
Keep at room temperature for 3 to 4 days.
Unripe avocados will ripen at room temperature. To speed ripening, enclose in a large plastic bag with ethylene-releasing fruits like bananas and apples.

* Green with Black Patches on Skin - Almost Ripe
As avocados ripen they soften slightly and the skin begins to darken.
These avocados will be ready to use in 2 to 3 days.
Avocados will not ripen after they are cut

* Almost Black Skin- Ripe and Ready to Eat
When fully ripened, avocados feel slightly soft and the skin is almost black.
Ripe avocados can be refrigerated until ready to use?

What Kind Of Avocado To Use For Guacamole?

The best avocadoes for guacamole are Hass avocados. They have bumpy green skin when they're unripe, and they turn black and are slightly soft when you press them when they're ripe. They have a delicious creamy texture that's perfect for guacamole.

Florida avocadoes aren't great for guacamole because their texture is more watery, so I don't advise substituting them in this recipe.

What Fruit Can You Add To Guacamole?

The great thing about guacamole is that you can add so many different fruits and it will be delicious. I've made this same recipe with mango, strawberry, cucumber, and even pomegranate.
