Mango Pomegranate Guacamole


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.
