    This dip is guacamole-inspired. It's smooth, creamy, fiery, chunky, fruity and full of flavour. Onion, chillies, avocados, pear, grapes and pomegranate seeds are mixed together.

    I am the submitter of the recipe and forgot to mention that the avocado should be mashed up and to mix in pomegranate seeds, not whole pomegranate. Sorry.  -  06 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Homemade guacamole is so much better! And this recipe is fantastic. I made a bit more than the recipe called for: 6 avocados, 3 finely diced pears, 1 finely diced small onion, about 2 cups of green grapes that I quartered because they were huge, the seeds from 1 pomegranate, the juice from 1 large lime, and two de-seeded serrano peppers. I had no idea how many seeds one pomegranate produces, but found just 1 to be plenty for my liking. And I'd be careful with the serrano peppers unless you know you like things hot. I only used two (and de-seeded them as well) to make sure my spice intolerant family members will actually be able to eat it. I can't wait to bring it to our Christmas festivities!  -  23 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I loved this twist on traditional guacamole. The only substitution I made for this recipe is using red grapes for the green. My grocery didn't have any green grapes in stock. The flavor was sweet/spicy and I did get a couple of thumbs up when I brought it to a family Christmas gathering. This recipe is a keeper for foodies like myself!  -  26 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
