Got your game day shopping done early? Be sure you know how to slow down ripening so you can have your avocados at the top of their game when the big day arrives.
Making the Guacamole:
- Any great game day snack starts with Avocados From Mexico. Halve, pit and skin your avocados. Place in a large bowl and mash until smooth (or desired consistency).
- Add diced onion, jalapeño, and cilantro.
- Flavor with salt and lime juice, taste testing between additions. Mix until all ingredients are well combined.
It’s time to bring out your inner artist. Let the masterpiece begin!
- Grass: Start by spreading your guacamole into a large, rectangular serving dish (a 13-by-9-by-2 or bigger). Be sure the top of the guacamole is smooth.
- Field lines: Next, create yard lines, end zones, and sidelines. Spoon sour cream into a resealable plastic bag. Cut one corner off of the bag to create a small hole and pipe your lines onto the guacamole. You may want to use a straight edge or a ruler to create smooth, evenly spaced lines.
- Uprights: Place two thick slices of yellow bell pepper into the guacamole at either side of the field. Pipe two small dots of sour cream on the ends of a third slice and place it across the top of each of the goal posts.
- Players: Of course, you’ll need two teams to play on your guacamole field! Is tonight’s game the Blue Corn Chips vs. Tortilla Chips? The Green vs. Black Olives? Red vs. Yellow Cherry Tomatoes? You decide.
- Grandstands: Line the field with broccoli, cauliflower, and cherry tomatoes. If possible,match your grandstand veggies with your team’s colors!
- The Football: Last but not least, you can’t have a guacamole football stadium without the ol’ pigskin itself. To make this recipe perfect for a gluten-free diet, place a beef jerky bite on the field as a football. Or, if you’d like to keep it vegetarian, reach for pretzel nuggets instead!
Serve your guacamole football field with extra sliced veggies, chips, or pretzels for dipping (that is, if you can bear to upset your masterpiece!). When the guests arrive, every member of your squad will agree: “It’s GOOOD!”
