Whether it’s game night, fight night, movie night, or Tuesday night, guacamole is never a bad idea. There’s no fancy method to preparing it or exotic ingredients that are difficult to find all year round. The key to great guacamole is to make it using fresh and quality produce. Find ripe avocados that are firm, but have a slight give when you squeeze them. Use fresh lime juice, ripe tomatoes, and cilantro with a bright green color and no browning or wilted leaves.
For any of you procrastinators scrambling to find a great addition to your SuperBowl Sunday, look no further. This is my basic guacamole, but don’t be afraid to break the rules and change it up to your liking. Add some extra chiles for heat, toss in some chopped mango for a tropical twist, or add some fresh corn for a summer twist. However you make it, be sure to make extra for late night snacking and don’t forget to stock up on your favorite tortilla chips.
