Guacamole with pomegranate

This is my favourite guacamole recipe: guacamole with pomegranate. The deliciously fresh taste of avocados and lime is accompanied by pomegranate and its wonderful crunchiness and sweetness, love it. Just make sure that the pomegranate you use is sweet, as a sour pomegranate and lime can make it too sour.

Guacamole can be varied with corn, different chili peppers, nuts, watermelon etc., but it always has the same base with avocados, lime, onion and cilantro. And it never ever, I repeat, never ever contains cream or any kind of diary product. That is, if you want the original Mexican version called Guacamole.

The chips, called “totopos” in Mexico, are made of tortillas that are dried in the oven or fried in the oil until crunchy.
