Ingredients

  • 1 package WHOLLY® SIMPLY AVOCADO™, Sea Salt flavor
  • 2 eight-ounce packages cream cheese, softened (full fat)
  • 1/4 cup sour cream, full or low fat
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (Mexican blend or cheddar blend)
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/41/2 tsp cayenne
  • 12 tsp chopped cilantro (or can use fresh parsley)
  • 3 heaping Tbl toasted pine nuts
  • 23 heaping Tbl pomegranate seeds
  • 23 Tbl crema (or can use thinned sour cream – (3 Tbl sour cream plus 1 tsp of milk)

Instructions

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the cream cheese and 1/4 cup sour cream. Mix until combined.
  2. Add in the cheese, oregano, dried parsley, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne. Mix until combined scraping down the sides and bottom.
  3. Remove the bowl from the stand, clean of the paddle. Take a serving platter and, using a thin blade spatula trace the outline of a Christmas tree with trunk. Once the tree outline is complete start filling in the tree by mounding up the cheese spread. When finished, place the platter, uncovered in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. If not serving in 30 minutes, remove from the fridge, cover with plastic wrap and store until serving (this can be made a day in advance).
  4. When you are ready to serve, take all but a tsp of toasted pine nuts and cover the trunk of the tree. Next, gently spoon and spread out the WHOLLY® SIMPLY AVOCADO™ over top the tree.
  5. Sprinkle on the cilantro over top of the WHOLLY® SIMPLY AVOCADO™!.
  6. Drizzle on the crema (just put it into a piping bag or plastic bag, snip the end and drizzle on like garland). Lastly place on the remaining pine nuts and pomegranate seeds.
  7. Serve with crackers, crostini or pita chips.
