You know I’m down for any excuse to make guacamole and eat avocados- so naturally a Christmas Guacamole seemed like an appropriate thing to do!
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.
- 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.
Enjoy NYC – last year Saks had an amazing ‘movie’ projected on to the outside of the building with bubbles.
Love this festive Christmas guacamole Gaby!! 🙂
I would not have thought of this combo- but I bet it is delicious (and very festive!!)
I love this Bedazzled guacamole!
Mmmm. A perfectly festive guacamole! Love the splashes of color and texture.
Gorgeous! I miss guac in the fall when it’s hard to find avocados.
What a great idea! I’m doing a grinch themed party around Christmas and this would be a great green food to add!
So pretty and love the touch of pink poms!
Great minds must think alike 😉
Where do you get your avocados?
Everywhere!! Whole foods, trader joes!
Def check out South Street Seaport… they have lots of fun stuff and shopping! 🙂
Christmas guacamole? You crack me up!
So creative! This recipe looks fab, perfect for the holiday parties!
I always make guacamole on Christmas Eve! But never with pom seeds, maybe this year I’ll switch it up. Merry Christmas!
Making this recipe tonight! How many does it serve?
Hey Ashley! It will serve about 4-6 people as a solid appetizer!! 🙂 xo
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!
A Little Cup of Mexican Hot Chocolate
All dressed up and ready for Christmas! Love it!
This is the most amazing guac! I like it any time of the year!!
You’re the guacamole queeeeeeen.
Pass the chips!
