Superbowl time. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…Football Season is the BEST season.
The Superbowl? It’s the culmination of all those months of hard hitting television time; the epitome of everything we’ve learned this season. Namely – who the best teams are, and what the best foods for tailgating turned out to be.
Sure, everyone has their favorite game day recipes. Be it the old stand-by of chips, or the beef slider, the chicken wings, or the meatballs…all are big contenders. But, one item always seems to get rave reviews, and that’s guacamole.
Yep, Guacamole. With tomatoes, or corn, with peppers or cilantro, garlic or onions, or maybe all of the above – guacamole is always a crowd pleaser. if you don’t believe me, sit a bowl of it out at your next function and tell me later how much you had left.
Yeah, that’s what I thought.
I was recently asked to try out a recipe from the Avocados from Mexico website, and I steered right towards the guacamole recipes. I can’t help myself. There were many good looking recipes to choose from, but the Peach Guacamole pretty much had me from hello.
So I made it.
We are still quite the couple, ol’ Peachy Guac and me. Hand in hand until sadly, I will have eaten the last of it.
Luckily, it’s the simplest of recipes to put together, and I can make it any time I want. And I shall want.
recipe courtesy of Avocados from Mexico
3 fully ripened avocados from Mexico, halved, pitted and peeled
3 tablespoons lime juice
3 tablespoons minced onion
2 tablespoons minced jalapeño pepper
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup diced peaches
BBQ chips (I used tortilla chips)
In a large bowl, combine avocados and lime juice. With a fork, coarsely mash. Add onion, jalapeño, cilantro, garlic and salt; stir until just combined. Add peaches; stir. Serve with barbeque flavored potato chips.
You, too should give it a try – I think you’ll love it! But if peaches aren’t your thing, you’ll probably find another incredible guacamole recipe (or any other game day recipes) over on the Avocados from Mexico site. Give it a look! Once you do, tell me this…which recipe got your mouth watering?
I want to know…I still haven’t decided FOR SURE which recipe I’m making for the Superbowl. Inspire me!
