Is there any better snack than guacamole? Chunky, creamy, spicy ... plus the crunch of the tortilla chips. So easy to make, no cooking required. Perfect for parties, cookouts, or just a random day.

But I may like this tropical guacamole even better. Not only is it chunky and creamy, it's the perfect blend of spicy and sweet.

It starts out the same as your basic guacamole: mashed avocados with salt and lime juice, plus red onion and jalapeno, but pineapple juice is added too, and diced mango and pineapple replace the tomato. Add cilantro if you like it in your guacamole.

Prefer a strictly sweet guacamole? Remove as much of the jalapeno pepper's ribs as you can. That's where the heat lives, so the more you remove, the less spicy your guacamole.

This guacamole is fantastic when eaten right away, but it's even better if it's allowed to sit in the refrigerator overnight, which allows the flavors to infuse together. Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface to prevent browning.

Can't find ripe avocado? Place them in a brown paper bag with an apple or banana for a few days. The ethylene given off from these fruits hastens the ripening process of the avocado. The length of time it will take will depend on how ripe your avocado already was prior to going into the paper bag.

Ahhhh mazing. This has got to be one of the best dips of summertime. I think I could take out an entire batch on my own!
