Pomegranate Guacamole

In honor of Cinco De Mayo today, I whipped up some guacamole with a refreshing spin.  Hope you all enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 2 avocados
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds (I bought mine at Trader Joe’s, no need to mess with seeding a pomegranate yourself)
  • juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1 tsp minced jalapeno (I removed ribs and seeds since I didn’t want this recipe to be spicy, but more refreshing)
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion (I like to run the cut up onion under the water facet to remove some of the strong onion flavor)
  • handful cilantro chopped (comes out to about 1/4 cup)
  • sea salt to taste (I used about 1/2 tsp)

Directions:

  • Remove flesh from avocado and mash with a fork
  • Add lime juice, jalapeno, red onion, cilantro, and salt to avocado and mix
  • Fold in pomegranate seeds to avocado mixture
  • Garnish with extra pomegranate seeds and cilantro if so desired
  • Enjoy!

I served mine with some steak fajitas, yum!
