Holiday Guacamole

Holiday Guacamole with Avocados from Mexico and Pomegranate

The holidays and las “Posadas” need some Avocados from Mexico to round up the parties and add that special something to our special celebrations, that is why today I’m sharing my aunt Minita’s favorite holiday guacamole with pomegranate seeds. This recipe was our family’s tradition during Christmas time, here the ingredients you will need:

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 avocados Hass (preferably Avocados from Mexico)
  • 1 cup of pomegranate seeds (save some for decorating purposes)
  • 1/2 cup of finely chopped white onion
  • 2 serrano chiles finely chopped (can avoid if not into spicy foods)
  • 1/2 cup of finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 lime juiced
  • Salt
  • Tortilla chips for serving

Ingredients to prepare Holiday Guacamole

Preparation time: 15 minutes. This recipe makes 3 cups of guacamole the cost for this is around $3.00 depending on ingredients price in your local market. You will need a fork, a knife, a spoon, a bowl and a serving plate.

Cut the avocado en halves, take out the pit carefully with a knife. Scoop the flesh and mash the avocado in a bowl using a fork until getting a creamy consistency, add the lime  juice and rest of ingredients, combine well. Taste and add salt as needed. Serve in a nice bowl and accompany with your favorite tortilla chips called in Spanish “totopos”.

Avocados are high in protein and are considered a healthy option. Recommending Avocados Hass from Mexico to get better results. These avocados are grown in Michoacan a place that has the perfect soil and temperature conditions for that velvety texture and delicious taste.

Pomegranates might require some work due to its hard shell and somewhat difficulty to take out the seeds though the tart flavor and nutritional value are worth the effort. This fruit is packed with vitamins C and B and are also a good supply of potassium and copper. Pomegranates are high in antioxidants, which are believed to fight the free radicals that might contribute to chronic diseases such as cancer.  This combination of the luscious avocado and the tartness of the pomegranate seeds are a perfect couple, recommend to serve as a starter and with fresh tortilla chips.
