Guacamole with Pomegranate

Guacamole is one of favorite things. It can be made a million different ways. I am honestly not sure that I ever make it exactly the same. I have seen all sorts of fun additions to guac and thought I would give one a try today. I just made a basic guac and added in some pomegranate seeds. The pomegranate adds a little bit of sweetness and crunch. Yum!

I forgot to put the jalapeno in my picture…oops! I used frozen pomegranate seeds. You can see they are still thawing out.

Mash everything together except the pomegranate. Stir in the seeds once everything else is well mixed.

    I’ll never forget the day when I discovered that our supermarket had started selling frozen pomegranate seeds! 🙂

    The problem then is that you live in constant fear that one day they’ll stop selling them… 🙂
