I tried this recipe at a friend of the family's. It is such a great twist to traditional guacamole. I wanted others to be able to try this. This not only tastes great but it looks nice as well. Don't be scared off by the ingredients, it is great with unsalted tortilla chips!

I am the submitter of the recipe and forgot to mention that the avocado should be mashed up and to mix in pomegranate seeds, not whole pomegranate. Sorry.

Homemade guacamole is so much better! And this recipe is fantastic. I made a bit more than the recipe called for: 6 avocados, 3 finely diced pears, 1 finely diced small onion, about 2 cups of green grapes that I quartered because they were huge, the seeds from 1 pomegranate, the juice from 1 large lime, and two de-seeded serrano peppers. I had no idea how many seeds one pomegranate produces, but found just 1 to be plenty for my liking. And I'd be careful with the serrano peppers unless you know you like things hot. I only used two (and de-seeded them as well) to make sure my spice intolerant family members will actually be able to eat it. I can't wait to bring it to our Christmas festivities!

I loved this twist on traditional guacamole. The only substitution I made for this recipe is using red grapes for the green. My grocery didn't have any green grapes in stock. The flavor was sweet/spicy and I did get a couple of thumbs up when I brought it to a family Christmas gathering. This recipe is a keeper for foodies like myself!
