Part two of Super Bowls and Plates.
This year’s football feast:
- Spicy, grilled chicken wings with blue cheese dip.
- Guacamole, because you have to make something healthy.
- The easiest barbecue ribs you’ll ever make.
Another classic, this creamy guacamole is dead simple to make and works as a dip or as an addition to fajitas. Make lots – it’s good for you and your friends will love the fact you didn’t give them those tiny little dollops you get at most Mexican restaurants.
I puree the ingredients because I like smooth guacamole. If you like it chunky, simply combine all ingredients.
1 large ripe avocado 12 to 13 ounces, peeled, pitted and chopped
3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped (reserve a little for garnish)
3 tablespoons green onion, just the white parts, chopped (reserve chopped green parts for garnish)
Juice of one lime
A splash of water (more or less for desired consistency)
A pinch of kosher salt
Combine all ingredients and puree in a food processor (optional) and refrigerate for an hour to allow flavours to combine. Serve with tortilla chips. Enjoy!
