I have never really understood guacamole. I know lots of people love it, but isn’t mashed up avocados just as good? Just a little lime juice, salt, and pepper? I don’t know, I just thought it weird to add tomatoes and whatnot. Sooooo, lets really get weird and add mango and pomegranate to our guacamole. Just so you know I am not the crazy one, I found this recipe on Epicurious. It appeared in Gourmet magazine in 2008. So there!
I put the guacamole on pork tacos, but you could also serve it with tortilla or plantain chips.
Mango Pomegranate Guacamole
- 4 ripe Haas avocados
- 1 cup finely chopped white onion
- 2 serrano chiles, minced or use jalapenos
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
- 1 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup pomegrante avrils (from 1 pomegranate)
- 3/4 cup diced mango
- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
Cut the avocados in half and remove the pit. Peel the avocados then place them in a large bowl. Lighly mash them with a fork.
Stir in the onions, chiles, lime juice, a little salt. Fold in the pomegranate and mango. Garnish with cilantro.
Can be made up to 4 hours in advance. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
