With the addition of toasted pumpkin seeds and a burst of colorful pomegranate seeds, this recipe takes us from summer, right into fall. Serve with pork rinds or your favorite tortilla chip.

Guacamole With Pepitas and Pomegranate Seeds

Servings 4
Author Rocco DiSpirito


  • 1 avocado, ripe
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tbsp cilantro, chopped
  • 3 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, fresh cracked
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds (pepitas), toasted
  • 2 tbsp pomegranate, seeds
  • 2 oz pork rinds


  • Scoop the avocado into a bowl (or a large mortar). Add the shallot, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, sea salt, and pepper and use a potato masher (or the pestle) to mash until combined, but the avocado should still be a little chunky.
  • Garnish with the toasted pepitas and pomegranate seeds. Serve with the pork rinds or your favorite tortilla chips.
If not serving right away, refrigerate, but sprinkle with some lemon juice to keep the guacamole from turning brown.
