superbowl!

I really love football.  I always have.  I come from a town that is big on football, and the fact that I played in the band meant attending a lot of football games.  But, the Superbowl, that is something else entirely.  The opportunity to make a ton of food I normally would not - and eat it of course, the commercials, and most definitely the game.  Especially this year, since we are big Patriots fans.

Each year I try and do some different recipes that I have never made, but have always wanted to.  Last year it was the bloomin onion, which was awesome by the way.  This year I have a lot of beautiful recipes pinned on my Superbowl Pinterest board.  And here it is two days before the big game, and I have no idea what I am going to make!

There is one thing that I will be making.  It is a staple in my house, and it is a great Superbowl party food.  Not to mention it is actually a very healthy dish.  What is this staple?  Well, guacamole of course!  If you have been reading here for a little while, you know that I love spicy Mexican food, and guacamole is a great pairing with that...or honestly on its own :-)


My Guacamole Recipe

5 ripe Haas avocados cut into small squarish pieces
5 vine ripened tomatoes seeded and chopped
1/2 red onion finely chopped
1 jalapeno finely chopped (you can omit this if you want - or seed it for only a little spice)
1 clove of garlic made into a paste (chop into pieces/sprinkle with salt/use a fork to mash into a paste)
juice of one lime

Mash all ingredients a bit in a bowl, mainly just mixing it all together.  Add salt to taste.  Best guac recipe ever :-)

  4. We're not into football at our house, but we are totally into guacamole. My recipe is very similar to yours, and it's definitely a favorite. Have fun tomorrow!
