It's so close. Just around the corner... Have you started counting the hours until the big game? More importantly, have you started planning the food?
Guacamole is a surefire crowd pleaser. Bright green guacamole paired with blue tortilla chips is a great way to show your Seahawk pride! Added bonus: it's super easy to whip up.
The most important step to making the perfect guac is fresh, high-quality produce. For the creamiest guacamole make sure your avocados are ripe. If you can't find ripe avocados, place them in a paper bag on your kitchen counter overnight.
Place the scooped avocados in a large mixing bowl with lime juice, toss to coat. Drain the extra lime juice into a small bowl and save. Later you can use the extra juice to add more lime flavor to your guacamole if desired.
Add Simply Organic fajita seasoning and mash the avocados with a potato masher leaving a few chunks for texture. Next, fold in onion, jalapeno, and cilantro. Add a tablespoon of saved lime juice.
Cover with plastic wrap, pressing the wrap against the guacamole to keep it from turning brown. Leave the guacamole at room temperature for about an hour to let the flavors marry.
Taste the guac and add more lime, salt or cilantro. Serve with Natural Directions blue corn tortilla chips and enjoy the game!
