There are two things that I love about Super Bowl Sunday: it was the day that I met Luke way back when and the Super Bowl Sunday Snacks. I love them both, differently, but for today’s purposes we are going to talk about the snacks. Super Bowl is the perfect excuse to make delicious snacks that last all day and basically make up all three meals. I am talking about nachos, wings, twice baked potatoes, and of course guacamole.
I wanted to share with you my recipe for guacamole. It is pretty simple but seriously delicious. Guacamole can get people very opinionated. I am one of those people. I like mine chunky, with tomato, onion, and lots of lime juice and salt. Simple and delicious. I throw in a jalapeno for some heat. Nothing fancy, but seriously perfect in my opinion.
Here is my recipe – it serves about 4 or to be honest maybe just myself:
- 4 ripe avocados
- juice of 2 limes
- 1/2 jalapeño, seeds removed and finely chopped
- 1 Roma tomato, seeds removed and chopped
- 1/2 white onion, chopped
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt (more to taste)
Remove the flesh from the avocados and place in bowl. Pour juice of limes over avocado. Add jalapeno, tomatoes and onion and combine. Add salt, stir and taste. Add more salt or lime juice if necessary.
Also, here are some other recipes from around the web that would be great to serve on Superbowl Sunday, if you want to serve something other than guacamole.
Check out this Hot Kale and Bacon Dip. It has kale in it so don’t feel bad about eating all of it.
If you are a wing kind of person, you have to make these Korean BBQ Chicken Wings. They look incredible!
Or what about these Pretzel Dog Bites with Beer Cheese Dip. You had me at Beer Cheese Dip.
You can never go wrong with nachos, especially when those nachos have pulled pork on them.
If these Loaded Potato Pinwheels were good enough to win a million dollars, they are probably good enough for my Super Bowl spread.
Trying to be a little healthier and stick with your New Year’s Resolution? Check out these Spiced Citrus Pickled Shrimp. You won’t feel guilty eat one or two or five.
Last but definitely not least, you need something sweet, so how about these Football Whoopie Pies.
Whoever you are cheering on this weekend make sure you have some yummy snacks so the rest of us who frankly don’t really care who wins can enjoy as well!
