Christmas Guacamole

You know I’m down for any excuse to make guacamoleΒ and eat avocados- so naturally a Christmas Guacamole seemed like an appropriate thing to do!

Christmas Guacamole from (@whatsgabycookin)

Creamy avocados, tons of bright pomegranate seeds, cotija cheese, chives and some toasted pepitas seeds because why not! Serve it up with freshly fried tortilla chips that are doused in some salt and it’s the perfect easy way to kick off a dinner party. Or a party for 1 if your name is Gaby and you’ve been known to hose down 4 avocados in one sitting by yourself. NO JUDGEMENT PLEASE.

  1. I always make guacamole on Christmas Eve! But never with pom seeds, maybe this year I’ll switch it up. Merry Christmas!

  2. Hi! I’m a bit of a Mexican food purist, but I would love to try this! Pom seeds are traditionally used in chiles en nogada and pepitas in sauces. You can call it New Traditional!
