Quick, someone hand me a spoon because I could literally eat this by the spoonful. In case you haven’t guessed, I love guacamole. Like a lot. I make a version of it at least once a week. And when my side of the family gets together I usually make either guacamole or buffalo chicken dip.

This year, I’m throwing some ruby red pomegranate arils in it, serving it with festive chips and calling it Holiday Guacamole, because I can and because it’s pretty and equally delicious.

Sweet tart burst of pomegranate with the bite of the onion and creamy cool guac is a match made in guacamole heaven.

First scoop the flesh of the avocado into a large mixing bowl and squeeze in the juice of an entire lime.

How To Get Ripe Avocados To LAST:

The trick to storing ripe avocados so they last is a no-brainer, it’s easy and effective and has saved me SO much money. First  buy hard to the touch, bright green avocados and allow them to ripen on the counter. Once they are black, soft to the touch (NOT squishy) pop them into the fridge. Because here is where they will last for quite a few days! You guys this has changed my life and I owe this trick to my sisters. No more wasted avocados!

Then grate in two cloves of fresh garlic.

Using a potato masher, smash and mix the avocado in with the garlic and lime juice. Make this as smooth or as chunky as you like and then set it off to the side.

Next add in the onion, cilantro and pomegranate seeds and gently mix with a rubber spatula until combined.

Serve in a bowl with tortilla chips. I found these veggie and flax seed chips at Target and thought they were the perfect chip for the occasion.
