Christmas Guacamole

Christmas Guacamole
4 medium ripe avocados, pitted
1 fresh lime, juiced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon salt
½ medium red onion, chopped
¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 to 2 jalapeños, seeded and chopped
1 cup pomegranate seeds
Optional: ½ cup cotija cheese

1. Scoop the avocado flesh into a medium-sized bowl. Add the lime juice, garlic and salt. Mash the ingredients together until the avocado is nice and creamy.
2. Add the chopped red onion, chopped cilantro and chopped jalapeño to the bowl and mix well. Gently stir in ½ cup of the pomegranate seeds. 
3. Transfer the guacamole to a serving bowl and sprinkle remaining pomegranate seeds over guacamole, along with some additional chopped cilantro and optional cotija cheese. Serve immediately.

Storing Guacamole: If you have leftover guacamole, cover the top with plastic wrap, pressing it against the surface to minimize oxidation. Guacamole is best fresh but will keep in the refrigerator for up to two days.
