Fruit Guacamole (Guacamole con frutas)

From Truly Mexican, Roberto Santibañez, John Wiley, 2012.

I wanted something to go with quesadillas so settled on this fruit guacamole. It sounded a little unusual but somehow I rather liked the idea of combining fruits with chilli and a bit of salt.

I had bought a little roasted flaked coconut so did not have to roast my own as per the recipe. The remainder of the recipe was just to chop and mix. Into the mix went a little less than a quarter of a finely chopped white onion, a finely chopped hot red chilli, salt, half a peach peeled and chopped, 8 white grapes and 8 red grapes quartered and a handful of pomegranate seeds.

An avocado was now cut into small pieces and added to this mixture. It was all tossed well with a fork and the avocado squashed lightly to combine the ingredients a bit more. It was now ready.

I did enjoy this guacamole. The chilli heat and the salt seemed to add a wonderful tang against the mildness of the avocado and the sweet flavours of the fruits. One to have more often and one to try out with other fruit combinations.
