National Guac Day: Corn & Pomegranate Guacamole

It was National Guacamole Day yesterday!! Olé!! Of course to honor one of my favorite dips (meals?) I had to make a delicious guacamole to inhale. This recipe adds corn and pomegranate seeds so it's a non-traditional recipe. But if you're opting for the typical guacamole- leave out the pomegranate seeds and corn and add in 3/4 cup of diced tomatoes. Easy switch! 

Corn & Pomegrante Guacamole 

1 cooked corn on the cob, kernels removed 
2/3 cup pomegranate seeds
2 tbs cilantro, minced 

4 avocados, deseeded and flesh cubed
1/2 small red onion, finely minced (about 1/3 cup) 
1 garlic clove, super minced 
Juice of 1 lime
1 1/2 tsp jalapeño, deseeded and minced 

1/4 tsp cumin powder 
1 tsp salt 

Large bowl
Mixing spoon 
Cutting board
Chopping knife
Small bowl with hot water 

Take the minced red onions and add to the small bowl of hot water. This is to take the bite out of the onion. Soak for a few minutes and then drain in the strainer. 

Add the avocado to the bowl and pour the lime juice over it. Mix well, trying not to turn the avocados to mush. I like to keep mine chunky. 

Add the onions, cilantro, corn, pomegranate, garlic, jalapeño, cumin and salt to the avocados. Mix well and serve with your favorite tortilla chips! This makes a good party size so cut in half if it's just for a couple people. 

Grab a corona with a lime and have yourself a fiesta!!
