Fruita Guacamole from Toloache

I keep referencing our favorite restaurant. We discovered it in 2009 when we were in town for the New York Marathon. We have been back several times since! I highly recommend it - especially as a great place to pick up a meal before or after a play since it's right in the heart of the Theatre District.

Not only do they make great margaritas - cheers!

They make the best guacamole made with fruit. I found the recipe online and can't wait to make it when we get home. The recipe below is close to what I remember from the first time we ever tried it. Last nights had a slightly different combination of fruit including - pomegranate seeds sprinkled on top, mango, apple, peach and thai basil. I think they may have also used habanero peppers as opposed to jalapeños. So as you can see many combinations of fruit will work. The fruit is used somewhat sparely and is chopped up pretty fine.

Guacamole Recipe from Toloache Restaurant NYC

Chef Julian Medina of Toloache Restaurant in Midtown Manhattan shares how to make fruita guacamole.

251 West 50th Street
New York, NY 10019
(212) 581-1818

Serves 4

2 tablespoons chopped sweet onion, such as Vidalia
1/4 cup lime juice
1 tablespoons seeded and chopped jalapeños
2 ripe Hass avocados (preferably from Mexico), halved with pits removed
2 tablespoons strawberries, preferably earliglow
2 tablespoons pineapple
1 bag tortilla chips

Marinate the onions in lime juice with the jalapeños, and salt before mixing with the other ingredients. Scoop the flesh of the avocados out of the rind and put into a bowl. Mash the avocados with a fork, making sure to leave plenty of chunks. Mix in the onions, jalapeños, strawberries, and pineapple. Serve with corn tortillas chips.
