Smoked Chile and Mango Guacamole

This was delicious; the mango added a very light touch of sweetness and the smokiness of the chipotle complemented the other flavors perfectly.  Great on tacos or just with chips!

Yield: About 3 cups

1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 small red onion, diced
2-3 canned chipotle peppers, rinsed and diced
3 avocados, halved, pitted and diced
1 mango, seeded and diced
1 jalapeno, seeds removed, minced
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste
Tortilla chips, for serving

Remove chipotle peppers from can and rinse, then chop and place in a mixing bowl.  Add the cherry tomatoes, onion and jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice and mango to the bowl and stir.  Gently stir in diced guacamole; since this is a chunky style guacamole, you want the avocado to hold it's shape as much as possible.

Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Garnish with additional cilantro and serve with tortilla chips or on tacos.  Or maybe with a freshly poured margarita?  Yum!
