Pomegranate Guacamole

Festive guacamole? Don’t mind if I do! This guacamole has the best of both worlds - spicy and sweet. Sweetness from the pomegranate seeds and spice from the red pepper flakes and paprika. 

This upgraded guacamole will have you thinking twice about going back to basic guac. We’re all about a good classic guacamole with the fresh lime and cilantro, but this flavor combination knocks it out of the park. The burst of pomegranate and hint of spice awaken all the senses!

Not to mention, the crunch of the seeds gives this guacamole a whole new texture. You still have the fresh citrus and cilantro flavors but even more layered goodness is found in this recipe. Give it a shot as your new dip for chips or sandwich spread.

The best part of this recipe? It’s so easy! Mash all your ingredients in a bowl, and it’s ready to go. Grab your favorite chips, pita bread or veggies and bon appétit!
