Anytime Mexican cuisine is on the menu at our home, fresh guacamole is a must!  Flavorful and creamy, guacamole is a simple dip that relies on the perfect proportion of fresh avocado, cilantro, jalapeno’s, and fresh lemon juice.  For some extra heat, you can also dial up the chiles. And for touch of sweetness, add some pomegranate seeds. We often enjoy this recipe as a side with Mexican dishes or as an appetizer with chips!  Totally yummy!!
