Guacamole with Pomegranates

This guacamole is great for dipping tortilla chips into, or topping onto some yummy fish tacos, or even on top of a corn and black bean salad.  Besides being delicious, avocados are full of healthy things like good fats, fiber, and have more potassium than bananas.   Pomegranates are full of anti-oxidents and other good stuff.  Plus they’re pretty.  Whenever I make this guacamole, it feels like I’m in Arizona all over again.
