Food for Thought: Whipping Up the Perfect Guac

Even with recent lime shortages across much of the country, spring is still the perfect time to whip up a bowl of guac for your first porch sits or barbecues of the season. Always a party favorite, our guacamole recipe is a fresh take on the classic dip that has been around since the time of the Aztecs. We spruce up your average guac by tossing in pomegranate seeds and pepitas. Pepitas are a great source of magnesium, zinc and healthy fatty acids while the pomegranate adds a certain flamboyance you're sure to love. Pair it with some crispy tortilla chips or slap a glob into your favorite burrito, and all will be good in the world.

  7. 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt

  1. In a bowl, mash the avocado with a fork until it is nearly at your desired consistency. Stir in the cilantro, lime zest, lime juice, paprika, salt, and pepper.
