What's a Super Bowl viewing without guacamole? LAME.
Well the Eagles have flown to victory, but the guac doesn't have to stop at the SB party you hosted. Guac is the guilt-free dip option that has become increasingly popular with growth in avocado-lovers.
Swap out popcorn for an at-home movie night with a vibrant dip many people love. Throw it atop a quesadilla for a Mexican-themed dinner or even amp up a sandwich with a slab of guac. Eggs love a lil' guac as well.
Yes, guac can easily be store-bought, but I often times find these particular items to lack texture. I prefer to make my own because many times the guac is more of a purée than a chunky dip. Yuck.
I'm reluctant to make guacamole unless it's for a crowd because it does brown much faster than say.... a salsa, which you can easily keep for months. Thankfully the acidity from the lime helps with browning (yes, I keep that slice of lime in the container and not just for a pretty garnish). An airtight container is your next best option for storage and avoiding browning. Block out the oxygen and preserve your guac for an extra day!
Tortilla chips are the go-to pairing with guac, but I also recommend pita chips to switch it up.
3 avocados, mashed
1 lime, juiced
1/2 white onion, diced
1 plum tomato, chopped
2 Tbsp. cilantro
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
3 shakes Tabasco
Mash ripened avocados with the side of a spoon (not a fork) to enable variety in texture. Add onions, tomatoes, lime juice, cilantro, salt, garlic powder and Tabasco. Combine and refrigerate for at least 20 mins before serving.
