Although many people think of guacamole as only a savory appetizer, you can also incorporate fruit for an interesting twist. Pineapple, grapes, nectarines and mango are just some of the fruits that can be easily incorporated into your guacamole recipe alongside typical savory ingredients such as onion, garlic and chiles.

In this particular recipe, roasted tomatillos lend a slight sweetness and acidity alongside the sweet, crunchy pomegranate seeds. Finely diced serrano chile gives the dish some heat, and pan fried Queso Cotjia gives it a different texture akin to a cheesy crouton.

To store leftovers, press plastic wrap against the guacamole in an airtight container so it’s not exposed at all, and seal the lid. This will ensure any leftover guacamole will last in the refrigerator without turning brown for a few days.
