As a child, I never ate avocados. Not because I was put off by them, just because they were never on my radar. Back then, I wasn’t as interested in food, so it never occurred to me that avocados might be tasty.

When I think about it, my first taste of avocados must’ve been in a California roll. Even after that, I didn’t equate the creamy green stuff in my sushi to the pebbly, greenish-brown, pear-looking rocks in the supermarket.

I’m not exactly sure how I figured out that those “rocks” were mild, creamy, and rich tasting, but when I did, I would often eat avocados plain or with salt and pepper. But by far, my favourite way to eat avocados is guacamole. Guacamole is super addictive, especially with freshly deep-fried tortilla chips.

This pineapple guacamole recipe was a happy accident. I just happened to have some leftover pineapple in the fridge, so I tossed it in. Sweet pineapples, creamy avocados and a bit of spice definitely brightened up my day!

I am fresh, I am spicy: I am PINEAPPLE GUACAMOLE!

    Try roasting the pineapple. This chef did it at a party and gives it a great favor!!!

  5. Mike says:

    An added bonus is that the guacamole stays green overnight. I tried this before I read this recipe and added about a tablespoon of pineapple juice as well as chunks of pineapple. The flavor does not overpower since it has hot peppers and cilantro to balance it out.
