Game Day Guacamole

recipe for guacamole @PennySadler 2014

The biggest annual sporting event in the USA is just three days away, The Super Bowl, and that means party food!

Here in Texas, we like food with a bit of a south of the border flair. I’ve eaten my share of Tex-Mex (and rarely eat it these days as it tends to be carb-heavy), but I still love guacamole.

The nice thing about guacamole is that it’s simple and quick – and you can adjust the seasoning and add-in ingredients to suit your own tastes.

If you are serving an adults only crowd, try mixing in a bit of tequila for a different kind of spice.

Since this is a party recipe, I probably wouldn’t make it super spicy, but it’s all as you like: you really can’t mess up.

I’m not a spicy girl, so to give it some kick I add a bit of cilantro and garlic.

If you’re not sure, just add a little, taste, and add more as needed, tasting frequently!

If you do like it hot you can add jalapenos or red pepper.

For color and more flavor I also add chopped tomatoes.

Guacamole is so simple and easy – and it’s good for you! Eat as much as you want.

Serve with crispy corn chips and a nice cold margarita on the rocks.

Game Day Guacamole

serves 4


2 medium ripe avocados, halved and scooped from the shell.

1 small clove of garlic, minced

1 lime

1 small bunch of cilantro, finely chopped

salt and pepper to taste.

Put all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl or serving bowl, and blend together. If you like your guacamole smoother, you can mix it in the blender. For a chunkier style guacamole, I use a knife to chop the avocado and blend the ingredients together. Or use a fork to smash the avocado and mix all the ingredients together.
