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 🙂
