Sudara Eats: Mango Pomegranate Guacamole

We are big fans of guacamole.  A love for guacamole is almost a minimum requirement of being part of the Sudara team. Kidding on that last part. Maybe. 🙂

Although our “everyday guacamole” consists of a few avocados, a good pinch of sea salt, and a few squeezes of lime, we also like to change it up a bit and get a little fancy.  This Mango Pomegranate Guacamole is one of our favorites to serve at dinner parties and celebrations. We love the festive colors and the India-inspired flavor from the pomegranate seeds. We hope you love it too.

Mango Pomegranate Guacamole adapted via

4 ripe avocados (2 pounds total)
1 cup finely chopped onion
2 fresh serrano chiles, finely chopped (2 tablespoons), including seeds
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (we tend to use a little less than this)
3/4 cup pomegranate seeds (from 1 pomegranate.   If you don’t feel like breaking into one — it’s easy, we promise! — we can sometimes find just the seeds in a package at Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods)
3/4 cup diced peeled mango (we LOVE Ataulfo or champagne mangoes in this and for eating, in general)
1/2 cup chopped cilantro

Coarsely mash avocados in a bowl. Stir in onion, chiles, lime juice, and 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, then fold in pomegranate seeds, mango, and cilantro. Season with salt and additional lime juice.
