Pomegranate Guacamole




THIS image, is the pomegranate guacamole that Rich and I TOTALLY enjoyed at our first dinner in Scottsdale at Sumomaya.

We had been discussing the different guacamole options, and asked our server their fave…

Man! Was she on point!


on a side note…

I have found that if you are wavering between a dish or three, and ask your waitstaff their preferences? You will learn a lot; and, just MAYBE get a free desert.

Worked for us. At least twice in one week, but, perhaps that is just the Phoenix area?

I mean; we are nice guys, but free deserts?

ANYwho – you WANT this guacamole recipe. You NEED this guacamole recipe. Truly, if only to confound your foodie friends with how you’ve put this all together.

•2 ripe avocados
•1-1/2 tbsp lemon juice
•5 or 6 roasted garlic cloves, smashed
•1/2 tsp Cajun Power Spicy Garlic Peppers Sauce – or your fave hot sauce, to taste
•1 tsp Cowboy Candy Juice*
•1 tsp Kosher salt
•1 tsp black pepper
•1 tsp Aleppo pepper

Add Ins (to taste):
•Diced red onion
•Chopped dried apricots
•Dried cherries
•Dried cranberries
•Pomegranate seeds

*No Cowboy Candy Juice? No problem! Simply add slice fresh jalapeños to suit your taste. The guacamole will be spicy, but not as sweet as mine; so consider adding smoked brown sugar to the mix.

Peel and mash the avocados, then crush in a large bowl with the garlic, salt, peppers, and lemon juice.

Stir in the onion, dried fruits, and the pomegranate seeds, then transfer to a container, place plastic wrap directly on top of the guacamole, then cover tightly.

Note: I also added the pit from one of the avocados to the bowl, as this is supposed to keep it all looking fresh and green.

All has worked well so far. This is REALLY GOOD GUACAMOLE – a touch sweet, a tad spicy, and then… that fruit!

Yeh. You WANNA make you some of this.
