Mango Pomegranate Guacamole

Everybody has their signature dish, I believe Nancy has found hers in this dip.  She found it on a couple of months ago when she taking a dish for Caribbean themed party. It was a big hit everybody loved it and she has been making it ever since.  On Friday night we were going to a get together to celebrate a friends birthday.  Friday was a beautiful day and obviously she had to make the Mango Pomegranate Guacamole to nibble on while we sat on the deck enjoying, finally, a taste of the summer to come.

2 ripe avocados
1 cup finely chopped white onion
1 fresh serrano chiles, finely chopped
1/4 cup fresh lime juice, or to taste
3/4 cup pomegranate seeds (from 1 pomegranate)
2 diced peeled mango
1/2 cup chopped cilantro

I just love pomegranate seeds, but they are such a pain to remove, but our local Thrifties sells little tubs of pomegranate seeds, what a joy they are to use and though it is cheating a little and rather expensive, in my opinion well worth it.

Nancy wanted me to show the cutting up of the mango so here goes.

Slice the mango by the side of the large pit so that you get two half spheres of mango.

Score though the flesh but not through the skin in both directions.  And check out those nails.

Pop the mango inside out and magic, little pieces of mango that just have to scraped off the skin.

Chop the mango, onion and avocado in to very small pieces then mix with the remaining ingredients. Serve with good corn chips and sit back and bask in the praise.  This dip like every other time Nancy has made it, was the hit of the appies.


  1. Will need some salt and plantain chips are an additional option to nacho chips if you can find them.

    Pretty pictures...can you morph the wrinkles out of my fingers....not doing the nails justice!

    Thanks for posting this seems to bring rave reviews


  2. Tried this at work the other day (Leah brought in leftovers for lunch), sooo good
