An irresistible fall-flavored guacamole made better by pomegranates and autumn herbs

This guacamole not only tastes like fall but also looks like fall. The subtle flavor of herbs along with a touch of pomegranate give it a slightly sweet and savory twist.

I like to serve it with both the regular corn tortilla chips as well as blue corn chips to add even more color. To keep the guacamole a pretty light green color and give it a hint of tang, lemon juice is added. What's not to love about this fall guacamole?
