Every Super Bowl party needs a tasty guacamole dip and I’m so excited to share mine with you. Actually, this time I can’t take any of the credit! I may have prepared the tomatoes, onion and cilantro, but the actual recipe creation is all Cody. I had never even made guacamole myself before I met him!
Until I met Cody the only Mexican food I had really ever cooked were enchiladas with sauce from a can and tacos with lettuce, tomatoes, and cheddar cheese. Those meals are a thing of the past now! He’s slowly taught me the more authentic approach to Mexican food, and boy am I grateful!
He isn’t an expert, but he likes to think that this is one heck of a guacamole recipe that anyone can make! It’s so dang good that it was gone in less than 24 hours! And we already have plans to make more tonight!
3 ripe HAAS avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
1 roma tomato, diced
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
Juice of half a lime
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
In a large bowl mash the avocado halves with a fork.
Add the tomatoes, onion, lime juice, cilantro, salt, and garlic powder. Mix until completely combined. Enjoy!
This guacamole recipe can easily be adapted to your tastes as well. Like a lot of spice and heat? Add a serrano pepper that has been seeded and finely diced. Love the freshness of tomatoes? Add another diced roma tomato. Want the taste and texture of fresh garlic? Add one clove finely chopped to replace the garlic powder.
Start with this delicious basic recipe and then add more of what you enjoy to create your own guacamole that you’re sure to love!
Now run to the store and grab these ingredients today! No really, my grocery store was starting to run out of avocados on Tuesday! I promise you will not regret having a big bowl of guacamole come Super Bowl Sunday.
And don’t forget the copycat Chili’s queso dip I shared yesterday. You’ll have quite the party spread with this guacamole and queso dip!
