Pomegranate Guacamole

I love guacamole. I put it on toast, chips, sandwiches, eggs, crackers, burgers, and just eat it plain. I’ve always thought that my homemade guacamole was delicious. But then, in Arizona, a restaurant I visited had pomegranate arils in their guacamole. They added such a yummy sweet crunch that I’ve been making my guacamole with pomegranate arils since. I recently discovered frozen pomegranate arils at my local grocery store so now I can make my “new and improved” guacamole year round.

It’s simple to make. Dice 2 avocados and put into a medium sized bowl. Add 1-2 tbsp. chopped cilantro, 2-3 tbsp. finely chopped red onion, 1.5 tbsp. fresh lime juice, sea salt, and cracked black pepper. Mash lightly with a spoon then add in 2 tbsp. pomegranate arils. And enjoy!
