A few weeks ago I was at the OC Mix having lunch with my brother at Taco Maria. The guacamole was so good I had to go back and have it again. I love that they mix pistachio’s and fruit in with the guacamole. The combination of flavors is delicious. The first time I went they had grapes and pistachios and the 2nd time, they had persimmons, grapes, and pistachios. When I made my version, I decided to swap out the persimmons and grapes with pomegranates.
Here is what the Taco Maria guacamole looks like:
Here is how you make my variation of Taco Maria’s guacamole.
2 Large Avocados
1 Tbsp Chopped Garlic
1 tsp Salt
2 Tbsp Cilantro
2 Jalapeño Peppers Chopped (Reduce or eliminate to reduce spice)

Pistachios, shells removed
Seeds of 1 Pomegranate
Tortilla chips or sliced cucumbers, bell peppers, carrots, and celery for paleo.
1. Cut avocados in half and remove seeds.
2. Mash avocado in a bowl.
3. Add juice of 1 lime, 1 Tbsp chopped garlic, 1 tsp salt, 2 Tbsp Cilantro, 1-2 chopped Jalapeños, and stir.
