No matter what the occasion, the answer is always guacamole. And seriously people, what’s a Christmas party without a little guacamole? I mean, I live in LA, so I’ve gotta take advantage of the year round avocados that are available to me!
So let’s just talk about holiday parties here for a second. I’ve been a little swamped recently and I love it! I LOVE being busy. I just find myself way more productive when I have a ton of things to get done. There’s no room for procrastination. Well, unless it involved Pinterest, then it’s kinda like a procrastination and work thing, so it doesn’t count as wasting time. So when it came time to figure out what to bring to a holiday party last week, and I was only allowing myself a few minutes to whip something up, clearly the answer was guacamole. And it can’t just be any kind of guacamole!! It had to be a Christmas Guacamole because it was a Christmas party. And I firmly believe in having themed guacamole’s depending on the event and time of year.
So the Christmas Guacamole was born. It’s awesome. I used some giant Reed Avocados that were super creamy and buttery, threw in some pomegranate seeds and chopped jicama for some crunch, a squeeze or two of lime juice, some salt and pepper and voila! Christmas Guacamole was born.
A Christmas guacamole!
- 1 Reed avocado, or 2-3 Haas Avocado

- 1/4 cup chopped jicama

- Combine the avocado and lime juice in a large bowl. Mash together with a fork until you have a slightly creamy consistency.
- Add in the pomegranate and jicama and stir together with a spoon.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste and then dig in!!!
