POMEGRANATE-WALNUT GAUCAMOLE

THIS RECIPE IS A MOUTH ZAPPER. I was inspired by Rick Bayless’s guacamole from the Red O and adapted his recipe slightly for a spiced-up version!  From the slight kick of the serrano chili to the fresh burst of sweetness from the pomegranates to the earthy crunch of walnuts, this is a fabulous fall accompaniment to this meal or as a mouthwatering starter.
