I was looking in the market for some game day snacks for the Super Bowl next week. The avocados were looking amazing! They are large and beautiful. They would make a delicious, fresh guacamole. I bought a few and wanted to make some guacamole to go with the Chicken Taquitos I’m making for dinner.
Here is a delicious and easy recipe for making the most wonderful guacamole. It does call for a lemon, but I’ve used fresh lime, fresh oranges and even the bottled lemon juice is fine if you run out of fresh.
GAME DAY GUACAMOLE
3 avocados, the bigger the better (smashed up)
1/2 cup of your favorite salsa
1 teaspoon lemon juice
3/4 cup sour cream
seasoning salt and pepper to taste
1 diced tomato (optional if you like chunky guacamole) I do but my family doesn’t.
I just slice my avocados in half and then twist so they come apart easily. Then I slice lines down the avocado right in the skin. Then scoop out the green stuff with a spoon and it is already in little chunks, very easy to smash up with a fork. Then add the sour cream, salsa, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Chill for 30 minutes before serving with fresh tortilla chips or hot taquitos. Or use it in a 7 layer dip! It is yummy!
