Guacamole And More Superbowl Snack Ideas

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.

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”?
