The pomegranates in this dish burst in your mouth with each bite. They are the perfect sweet contrast to the guacamole. Together, this combination is perfect to stuff in any pepper. People who prefer to not have a spicy dish could use this filling to stuff tomatoes with. Try crumbling some blue cheese on to the top for added flavor.
