Making Guacamole a Year-Round Treat
Guacamole. It's probably my favorite dip to accompany chips. But it always seems so summery to me. With a simple ingredient swap, though, it becomes a fantastic holiday appetizer. It's November - tomatoes are out, pomegranates are in!
4 ripe avocados
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
handful of pomegranate seeds (1/4-1/3 of one fruit)
Cut, pit and mash the avocados. Add the juice from the lime to the avocado to prevent browning. Stir in onion and pomegranate. being careful not to puncture any of the seeds. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
And can I just add some more Trader Joe's love on here? The TJ's Organic White Corn Tortilla Chips are the best packaged tortilla chips I've ever had. They're perfectly crisp, with plenty of salt. They're even good on their own, once you've run out of guacamole...
