Game Day Guacamole

by Lauren Setum

With the Packers’ loss this afternoon, I thought a little pick-me-up was in order. This is my favorite guacamole recipe. For all you cilantro and tomato lovers, I’m throwing it out there ahead of time that those ingredients aren’t a part of this concoction. But give it a go anyways. It has a little kick to it; great for all of you who love spice (although it can be adjusted to not be so spicy, if you’re spicy-intolerant, like me). And, you can blame your ‘I’m so sad the Packers lost’ tears on the onion!

You will need:

(3) ripe (but not too ripe) Haas Avocados

(3/4 of 1) small red onion

(2) fresh limes

(1) jalapeno pepper (2 if they are smaller in size); remove seeds for less spicy results or keep some for spicier results

(1) clove of fresh garlic

salt

NOTE: I highly recommend this Black and Decker chopper for this recipe

**Serves 3-4. Alter ingredient amounts proportionately for a larger crowd.

1) Cut avocados length-wise and remove seed. Empty contents into bowl or container that you want to serve guacamole in. Use fork to mash avocados.

2) Peel onion. Cut into chunks and add to chopper. Do the same with jalapeño(s) and garlic clove. Use chopper to cut into fine pieces. Add to avocados.

3) Roll limes to ‘loosen juices’. Cut each in half. Squeeze all juice into avocado mixture.

4) Mix to combine together. Season with salt as desired.
