We love simple, timeless recipes like Eva Longoria's Guacamole (let’s be serious—who doesn’t love diving into a delicious guacamole face-first?!), but with the holidays quickly approaching, we thought it would be fun to amp up her recipe with tasty seasonal adds.

We love the flavor and texture that tangy pomegranate seeds and crunchy pistachios add to this classic dip. We also swapped the onions out for more subtle green onions so that the bright notes of pomegranate and the saltiness of the pistachios would really stand out.

You can dig into this tasty dip with your favorite tortilla chips or crudité, but we really love smearing this stuff onto a nice, thick piece of toast and eating it for breakfast or even as a quick and easy snack during the day. Trust us—this will totally satisfy your seasonal foods cravings!
