Recipe: Mango Pomegranate Guacamole

Looking for an easy upgrade for your standard guacamole recipe?  Stir in diced mango and pomegranate seeds!  My friend Jackie made a double batch of this for yesterday's 4th of July BBQ and it is easily one of my new favorite guacamolicious appetizers.

Start with a basic guacamole...
...stir in diced mango and pomegranate seeds...

...and then stuff it in your face.
