Game day, fight night, or Friday Fajitas this guacamole will sure liven things up. If you still have a few pomegranates around, don’t toss them!
The pomegranate seeds and mango add vibrant color and a sweet taste to help tone down the hotness of the Serrano chile. This guacamole can be used as a spread for sandwiches, in chicken nachos or as part of a vegetarian cheese quesadilla.
4 ripe avocados
1 cup pomegranate seeds from 1 pomegranate
1 cup diced mango
1 Serrano chile, diced finely with seeds
1/2 medium white onion, finely diced (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
Juice from 1 lime
1 1/4 tsp of salt (optional to taste)
Juice lime and set aside.
In a medium bowl halve, pit and scoop out avocados. Mash roughly with the back of a spoon or fork. Sprinkle with 1/4 tsp of lime juice to keep from browning.
Did you know that if you keep the pit in the bowl with the mashed avocado it will help prevent browning too? Next time you have a half an avocado, store the half that has the pit in the refrigerator. Simply wrap it tightly with foil, put it in the fridge until your next use.
Add the diced chile, onion and lime juice. Mix well. Fold in the diced mango and pomegranate seeds. Fold in salt to taste.

Pomango?!?!?!? I LOVE it!
Crazy flavor combo! Something for every taste sensation.

Love this idea! I imagine the pomegranate gives the guacamole a great texture as well. I can’t wait to try this!

What a creative combination . . . and thanks for your hint about preserving avocado. (I usually end up eating the whole thing — easily.)

This looks delicious! I never would have thought to add pomegranate seeds to guacamole, but this looks so tasty!
Thanks Tiffany! Can’t wait to try your pear guava butter!
The flavors really work to balance out the chili. 🙂
Thanks MamaJ! The seeds do give great texture and are a little bit of sweet juiciness in every bite.
Thanks Kate! Let me know how it fares over super bowl.
Thanks Amy. I just read your bar cookie recipe, does “I smiled” count as “I laughed”? I love white chocolate, too!
Thanks Rosemary. Yes, I learned about the pit from a friend and find it works better than lemon juice…that is if there is any avocado leftover.
Thanks, and it is quick and easy! If you make it, let me know how it turns out.
This recipe looks delicious! I will definitely make it and share it with others. Thank you!
What an interesting guacamole recipe! This looks fantastic!
A healthy fat and and a tangy sweet antioxidant all melded with spice – now that’s what I call a SUPER GUACAMOLE… Your timing on this is perfect to spring on bowl party goers. Thanks!
Thank you! Please let me know how it turns out and if you make any changes.
Thank you Ravie! My fiancee and I love it.
You said it best! I’ll definitely make this again for superbowl weekend.

This looks wonderful!
Pomegranate and mango are just a natural pairing, aren’t they? I just posted a pomegranate mango vegan ice cream today!
Can’t wait to get to the store for avocado to make this guac!
Okay so I made this recipe….and it was DELICIOUS!! Thank you!! I substituted 1/2 of a jalapeno pepper, added a bit more cilantro, but I did not have the mango…but it was still great without. The pomegranate seeds add a nice touch…and in the future I hope to make it with mango as well. My niece will love you forever for this recipe! Thanks!
Thanks! I’m going to make it for Super bowl Sunday. Your ice cream looks great! I love the fact that you made it in the blender. I’m definitely going to give it a try.
I’m happy you liked it! The seeds add a nice touch. I think recipe is a pretty good experiment recipe. I plan on trying other ingredients soon.
