 The Super Bowl, the biggest game of the year is just a week away. Over 100 million people will turn on their TV’s and tune in to watch the events unfold.

On average, the game can run from 3 to 4 hours… so you’re going to need snacks.

Chips and dips are Super Bowl classics. And what could be better than a fresh, smooth, creamy bowl of guacamole.

The world is obsessed with this superfood dip. We simply can’t get enough of it, especially on Super Bowl Sunday.

Fun Fact: throughout the course of Super Bowl Sunday, Americans will eat approximately 8 MILLION pounds of guacamole!

So let’s get started.

Ingredients
3 Avocados (ripe and soft)
½ onion
½ cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half or chopped
1 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
1 tbsp lime juice
½ tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp sea salt

 

Directions

Slice and pit the avocados and scoop out the green fruit with a spoon.

In a large bowl, mash the avocados with a fork to your liking (some prefer a chunky guacamole, others like smooth and creamy).

Next add the salt, garlic powder, lime juice and olive oil. Mix and mash the ingredients well.

Grab the chopped onion, cherry tomatoes and cilantro and mix them in.

(Don’t forget to taste the dip! Adjust and add seasonings to your liking) 

The longer guacamole is exposed to air, the less appetizing it becomes… the avocados will start to brown, so once this dish is done, cover it tightly with plastic wrap and stick it in the fridge or eat right away!

Bon Appetite and enjoy the game!
