I mean is it really Christmas time without guacamole? What kind of avocado + guacamole fanatic would I be if I didn’t make a Christmas themed guacamole. It’s 100% acceptable and it’s green and red so it’s totes festive. I’m kinda obsessed.
Speaking of festive….I’m heading off to NYC today for work for the rest of the week. Super jazzed to see all the gorgeous holiday lights and eat my way through the city and do some serious holiday shopping! Not so sure I’ll find any Christmas guacamole there, but hey, a girl can dream right?! Have you guys been to NYC for the holiday season? I am in search of the biggest and most beautiful tree in the city. Any ideas? I mean I know there’s the big one but are there any other fun trees that can’t be missed? I’m on a mission. And if that mission happens to land me near Bergdorfs or Tiffany’s, well let’s all say a little prayer for my wallet and hope that is doesn’t go crazy.
Anyways, back to the guacamole. Are you as obsessed with pom seeds as I am? I’ve literally been buying pomegranates by the barrel full and chowing down on them every day. They are so good! And they add a really fun color and texture to the guacamole. It’s like a little burst of awesomeness when you scoop some up on a tortilla chip. And this would be kinda perfect with a pomegranate margarita. Not sure how to make that – but you can bet I’m going to figure it out! Christmas guacamole + pom margaritas here I come! Thank goodness for countries like Chile so I can get my avocado fix on in the winter months!
Also – side note. This guacamole has some toasted pepitas in it. I like to toast them because it makes it extra special. But you could just throw them in plain too. It’s totally up to you 🙂
- 2-3 Hass avocados
- 1 Lime, juiced and zested
- 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
- 4 tbsp toasted pepitas
- sea salt and pepper to taste
- Combine the avocado and lime juice and zest in a large bowl. Mash together with a fork until you have a half chunky half creamy consistency.
- Add in the pomegranate and pepitas and stir together with a spoon.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
I am so excited you are making one of my recipes and I would love to see how it turns out. Make sure to share it on instagram and tag me @whatsgabycookin so I can see your masterpiece!
