either you love guacamole or you’re wrong. i love all kinds of guacamole, but my favorite kinds are with fruit! i decided to make something different. i feel like many guacamoles have pomegranate, but i decided to add black cherries to mine! i was at whole foods and i saw these delicious, plump, and juicy looking bag of cherries. i quickly grabbed them and when i got home, i found a bunch of avocados in my fridge. they were perfectly ripe. it only made sense to make guacamole!
2 ripe avocados – to tell if their ripe, give them a little squeeze – they should be slightly soft (like mango!)
1/3 sweet onion, diced (you can also use red onion)
2 cloves garlic, diced
1 jalepeno, diced (i removed most of the seeds, but if you like it super spicy, keep the seeds!)
1/2 cup pomegranate seeds – i bought these already packaged and ready to go. i have yet to cut a pomegranate!
about 20 black cherries, sliced in halves and the pit removed
juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon lime zest
handful of fresh cilantro leaves – to taste
salt & pepper to taste
put everything except the pomegranate seeds and cherries in a blender and blend until almost smooth
put guacamole in a bowl and mix in pomegranate seeds and cherry halves
note: you can always dice the cherries if you want smaller pieces, but i like my cherries in bigger pieces
serve with tortilla chips, use it as a topping or just eat it alone! it’s that good.
