For some, stocking up on delicious game-day snacks is even more important than the Super Bowl itself. And guacamole is among the most popular nibbles; in fact, football fans are expected to consume 104.2 million pounds of avocados, according to the Hass Avocado Board. If you'll be among those enjoying the tasty spread on Sunday, we've got you covered with a classic guacamole recipe from Chicago blog Lottie + Doof. And remember: Any guac is only as good as the avocados it uses, so hunt around for the creamiest green fruits you can find.
Guacamole from Lottie + Doof
- 4 Hass avocados
- 1/4–1/2 red onion, diced (about 1/2 cup diced red onion)
- Bunch of cilantro, chopped
- 2 limes
- 1/2 habanero/serrano chili, stemmed and seeded (depending on how hot you want it, you can add seeds)
- Salt to taste
- Black pepper
Put pitted avocados in bowl. Add red onion, and the juice of one lime, cilantro and chili. Mash contents with fork. Taste, and add salt, pepper and more lime juice until it tastes good to you.
Serve with tortilla chips and beer.
