My Super Bowl (of guacamole) 

Hey guys, hope you had a fun Super Bowl evening. Lord knows I wasn’t watching the game, but I sure enjoyed the snack foods! Here’s what I brought to the party this year. It’s our homemade guacamole, my favorite snack!

( I got a little silly and even decorated it with a spicy football on the top)


Ingredients:

-4 avocados 🥑 

– fresh lemon 🍋 or lime (juice) 

– 1 jalapeño pepper

– 2 cloves of garlic (or 2 tbsp garlic powder)

– 1 bunch of fresh cilantro

– 1/2 small onion

– chipotle seasoning or smoked paprika (for decoration)

– salt and pepper (to taste) 
Directions:

Cut up 4 avocados and mash in a large mixing bowl. Take your onion, garlic, cilantro and jalapeño and mince. (I like the onion kind of chunky, but you can make it as fine as you like.) Add the juice of 1 lime and mix together. We didn’t have limes, so we substituted lemon and I have to say, it just wasn’t the same. Add salt and pepper to taste. I would say we used about 1 tbsp of pepper and 2+ tbsp of salt. My hubby likes it too salty for my taste, so taste it as you make it. 😉 

Finally, add some of the smoked paprika or chipotle seasoning to the top. I did mine in the shake of a football with cilantro stems as the stitches. I garnished with more cilantro around the edges as well. Mix it all together when you are ready to eat, and enjoy!
