I feel like I am breaking a cardinal rule here. Am I allowed to mess with the status quo when it comes to making a recipe like guacamole? Is it frowned upon to add and adjust things? Let's be real - guacamole is phenomenal in an of itself. There are nights that I have chips and guacamole for dinner. Nothing else.
So when I saw a picture of pomegranate avocado toast the other day, I started thinking...what about pomegranate guacamole? And while I'm at it, why not go all out and add some cheese? As I'm coming down from the Christmas high of eating cookies, candy canes, and drinking liters of hot cocoa, I will feel a-okay making guacamole feel a little more festive.
If you have to, turn on Feliz Navidad to convince yourself that you're in fact eating guacamole. Or not. Either way, try out this recipe and enjoy!
