Pear and Pistachio Guacamole

Pear and Pistachio Guacamole | Pinky's Pantry
I saw this recipe on foodnetwork.com and I thought it would be fun to make a different kind of guacamole for Cinco de Mayo. This guacamole recipe couldn’t be any more different from the traditional, but it was delicious! It had a slightly sweet, slightly spicy flavor that went great with tortilla chips and was a perfect addition to our Cinco de Mayo dinner.

PEAR AND PISTACHIO GUACAMOLE

  • 3 Hass avocados, halved, pitted and cubed
  • 2 firm ripe Seckel pears or 1 large Anjou pear, cored and finely diced
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
  • juice of 1½ – 2 fresh limes
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 small jalapeño, minced (if you want it less spicy, remove the seeds)
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped roasted pistachios
  • lime wedges, for serving
  • blue corn tortilla chips, for serving
  1. Toss together the avocados and pears in a medium bowl.
  2. Stir in the cilantro, juice from 1½ limes, garlic, jalapeño, salt, and pepper.
  3. Taste and adjust seasoning with additional lime juice, salt, and pepper if desired.
  4. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle pistachios over top.
  5. Serve with lime wedges and blue corn tortilla chips.
