Mango Guacamole

This recipe is a favorite from Rick Bayless' fine-dining restaurant, Topolobampo, where he serves a different creative guacamole every month. With just two nontraditional ingredients--diced mango and red onion--this simple recipe turns a familiar dip into a party appetizer people fall in love with all over again. "Guacamole likes to be cold," says Rick, "so serve it in a nice dish over a bowl of crushed ice."
