serrano or jalapeno chiles (minced)
1⁄4 cup
cilantro leaves (roughly chopped)

Additional Notes

The quanity of hot peppers can be adjusted to taste. Removing the seeds and membranes before chopping will also lower the heat level.


Halve the avocados, remove the pits, and scoop the flesh into a medium bowl. Sprinkle with the lime juice. Mash into a coarse pulp.Add the scallions, garlic, chiles, cilantro and pomegranate juice. Continue to mash until well blended but still a little chunky. Fold in the pomegranate seeds.
