I don’t know what it is about mango and avocado, but when combined with red onion, fresh lime juice, cilantro, salt, and a touch of maple syrup, something heavenly emerges. Who needs fish when you have this magnificent ceviche, which I could—quite seriously—eat every single day. It also tastes great stuffed inside warm corn tortillas (lettuce leaves work as well), and I strongly suggest a margarita to wash it all down.
What you need:
- 5 corn tortillas
- 1 teaspoon sea salt, divided
- 2 medium mangos, cubed
- 2 medium avocados, cubed
- ¼ cup chopped red onion
- ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- ½ teaspoon maple syrup
- ½ teaspoon paprika
What you do:
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and set aside.
- Cut each tortilla into 6 equal triangular pieces. Place onto baking sheet in an even layer and bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until crispy. Remove from oven and sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt.
- In a large bowl, combine mango, avocado, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, maple syrup, paprika, and remaining ½ teaspoon salt. Toss to coat well. Serve with toasted tortilla chips.
- >> For this recipe, it’s best to use avocados that are just ripe, but not too soft.
>> Fresh corn is ideal for this recipe, but if you’re short on time, canned or frozen work well, too.
>> If making this recipe ahead of time, combine all ingredients except for avocado. Right before serving, gently toss in avocado.
