Day 19 of 20 (4/20 Foods) – Guac-a-Marlee

We’re almost there! Nineteen days of recipes and we still have one more to go.

Today’s recipe actually was inspired by a restaurant near us that we went to with our family friend, Julie. We didn’t like anything we had that night except for this amazing “Sweet and Spicy” guacamole that had pomegranate seeds and dried apricots. Thinking back, we don’t really remember what the spicy component was but we liked it so much, we decided to make our version.

Most people who are reading our blog hopefully have a general idea of how to cook/bake and make things, so the recipe below is missing quantities because we want to allow you to make the guacamole to your specific tastes and how much you want or need.

Enjoy our tasty and addictive creation below!

  • Onions (Diced)
  • Tomatoes (Diced)
  • Dried Apricots (diced)
  • Jalapeno (diced)
  • Pomegranates seeds
  • Chicharrones
  • Dried Chipotle
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper
  • Lemon

Step 1: Cut and smash up avocados.

Step 2: Add chipotle, cayenne, salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon.

Step 3: Add in diced apricots and pomegranate seeds and mix.

Step 4: Place the chicharrones around the bowl with everything and you can even crush one on top for extra flair! Don’t have or like chicharrones? Try it with bacon!

We don’t have quantities above because it depends on the amount you plan to make, and how much you enjoy the ingredients involved.
