This week kicks off the season of parties and good food with good friends. Whether you are entertaining for the holidays or getting ready for Sunday afternoon football, this recipe for Game Day Guacamole is perfect for any occasion. This seems to find a special place on our party table surrounded with tortillas, pita chips or veggie sticks; sometimes all three!
Avocados can be a hit or miss when shopping in the produce section, so when you find them perfectly ripe, be sure to grab a few to make this surprisingly easy appetizer. What I like most about this is this: I know exactly what is going into my snack- I can pronounce each and every ingredient, can control the salt and love the fact that it is healthy and fresh.
First, we will need the following:
2 ripe avocados, peeled and chopped
2 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/2 small red onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lime, cut in half
Fresh Cilantro (or 1 Tbsp. dried)
salt and pepper to taste
With a fork, or masher tool, break up avocado in a bowl until chunky.
Add chopped tomatoes…
then add everything else….
but don’t forget to squeeze in half a lime…
Mix together with a fork until completely incorporated, careful not to mush the tomatoes too much.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Now grab your favorite chip or veggie and enjoy!
