Christmas is a week from today guys, and while I’ve been great at making holiday cocktails, my holiday snack making has been less than stellar. Yesterday I decided to pull out an old recipe (one I’ve actually shared here in the past) and play around with it. A couple of quick changes made it better than ever, so I decided to share it here again. This makes for a really unique holiday app for parties, since, you know, most people don’t think of avocados when they think of winter. The pomegranate seeds give it the perfect hint of festive color (and truly delicious flavor), and combined with seasonal pears, turn regular old guac into holiday goodness.
2-3 large, ripe avocados, cubed
1 pear, cut into cubes
1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
Peel and cube the pear, and set aside. Remove seeds from the pomegranate, and set aside. Put cubed avocado in a serving bowl and mash to desired consistency. Stir in pear and pomegranate. Squeeze half a lime over the top, add a little salt, top with a few pomegranate seeds, and serve! It’s super easy and so yummy.
My mouth is genuinely watering thinking about those juicy pomegranate seeds. I hope you enjoy this fun take on winter guacamole as much as we do!
