Two kinds of citrus -- lime and orange -- and plenty of fresh mint set this margarita-inspired guacamole apart.


  • 3 ripe but firm avocados, peeled and pitted

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  • ½ teaspoon grated orange zest, plus 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice

  • ¼ cup chopped jalapeno

  • ¼ cup fresh mint

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. In a medium bowl, lightly mash avocados. Add lime juice, orange zest and juice, jalapeno, mint, 2 teaspoons salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and mix to combine. Serve immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container with plastic directly on the surface for up to 1 day.
