It’s Superbowl weekend and everyone seems to be posting their favorite Superbowl snacks.

Mind you I have zero interest in football. Maybe less than zero (if that’s possible). I wasn’t even sure who’s playing until I looked it up 5 minutes ago.

That being said, I am interested in the snacks. So whether I watch the game or not, I’ll be eating guacamole on Sunday.

I make guacamole all the time. I love it with raw carrots, cucumber slices and celery sticks, as well as with baked rice crackers or organic tortilla chips.

Sometimes I make “lazy guacamole” by mixing mashed avocados with a few tablespoons of store-bought pico de gallo/fresh salsa, but generally I use the following basic guacamole recipe. This recipe will feed about 4 people; if you are providing snacks (Superbowl or otherwise) for a crowd; double or triple the recipe.

Recipe for Guacamole

Ingredients:

*flesh from 2 medium-large ripe avocados
*1 small tomato, diced
*1 large clove garlic, peeled and minced
*2 Tb. minced green, red, or white onion (or more to taste)
*2 Tb. minced cilantro (or more to taste)
*1/2-1 jalapeño pepper, seeds removed and minced
*1-2 Tb. fresh lime juice (or to taste)
*1/4 tsp. Himalayan or sea salt

Directions:

1. Mash avocados (not too much; you want your guacamole to be a little chunky) and mix with garlic, onion, cilantro, and jalapeno. Squeeze lime juice over the guacamole and mix again. Sprinkle with the salt, taste, and adjust seasonings, if necessary.

If you are doing a big Superbowl spread, guacamole is awesome with chili. You can find my chili recipes here and here. I’ve also got some more dip recipes here, and additional healthy snack ideas here.

p.s. If you’re like me and you’re way more interested in the food than the football, make sure to head over to Food52 and check out the beautiful Superbowl Feast they’ve put together. Can you say “Superyum”?

    Thanks for this. I am always trying to find ways of using more avocados as they are so delicious and good for you, and the guac is a classic.
