Nothing says ‘Super Bowl’ more than guacamole

At some point, guacamole became the go-to appetizer for the Super Bowl. While we’re not exactly sure when this happened, we totally understand why. Mash up an avocado, squeeze in some lime juice, and dash it with salt and voila! Here are a few of our favorite guacamole recipes.

Joe’s Guacamole (Created by the produce manager at our West 7th Street store)

Ingredients
5 ripe Hass avocados, 2-3 cloves garlic, minced 1 (heaping) tsp. ground cumin, preferably fresh ground, 2-3 Serrano chilies, seeded & finely chopped, 2 ripe Roma (or medium slicing tomato), chopped 1 lime, juiced 1/3-1/2 cups cilantro, rough chopped, and salt to taste

Preparation
Combine all ingredients and mash. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.

Tips: – For fuller flavor from Serrano chilies, pan roast in a dry skillet until skin is blackened and blistered. – Add chilies one at a time, tasting in between, to find the right spice level.
