ripe Haas avocados
lime (juiced)
1 cup
scallions (thinly sliced)
4 cloves
garlic (minced)
serrano or jalapeno chiles (minced)
1⁄4 cup
cilantro leaves (roughly chopped)
2 tablespoons
pomegranate juice
1⁄4 cup
pomegranate seeds

Additional Notes

The quanity of hot peppers can be adjusted to taste. Removing the seeds and membranes before chopping will also lower the heat level.  (Recipe #641)


Halve the avocados, remove the pits, and scoop the flesh into a medium bowl. Sprinkle with the lime juice. Mash into a coarse pulp.

Add the scallions, garlic, chiles, cilantro and pomegranate juice. Continue to mash until well blended but still a little chunky. Fold in the pomegranate seeds.
