Guacamole recipe for Super Bowl Sunday

Guacamole recipe

Guacamole at its best

They say that more avocados are sold around Super Bowl Sunday than at any other time of the year. Making Guacamole is such any easy task and it tastes so much better than anything you can purchase packaged at supermarkets, gourmet food shops, or at farmers’ markets. This Guacamole recipe is quick and easy and uses fresh ingredients. Talk about healthy!

The one-minute video will show you the ingredients and how much of each we use. You can experiment by adding a little more or little less olive oil, cilantro, or lime juice. For the Serrano peppers, we scale back the heat by getting rid of all the seeds and most of the veins in the chili peppers. This is an old Guacamole recipe that my father used to make and he loved the full Serrano pepper. Since I like drinking wine with Guacamole, I don’t want it to be too spicy hot. I want to savor both the wine and the Guacamole.

I would venture to guess that the preferred beverage of choice with Guacamole and tortilla chips is beer. I however like to drink a nice crisp and refreshing white wine, something like a Riesling that has just a touch of sweetness. Sparkling wine is also good as in Domain Chandon Rosé or the Domaine Allimant-Laugner Rosé that I also recommend for Valentine’s Day.

I also love a light red wine like a spicy Garnacha from Spain. There is something magical that happens in my mouth when the red wine and the flavors of Cilantro meet. I think it is a match made in heaven. You might try the Tres Picos Garnacha that Costco carries. It’s perfect for the Guacamole. Enjoy and Go Niners!!!!

  1. I’ll add mine to the mix. According to my friends, it’s award winning ;-)

    2 Avocados
    1/2 Red Onion
    2 cloves garlic
    1/2 Serrano Pepper
    1/3 bunch of Cilantro
    1 TB Olive Oil
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 Lime (maybe less, depending on taste)

    Oil in saucepan. Throw in chopped garlic, Serrano and onion. Turn the heat on with ingredients already in the oil to avoid burning. Heat up until you see the garlic begin to turn brown. As soon as it does, remove from heat.

    Scoop out avocado into bowl, and add salt. Mix a little bit. Add sauteed mixture and continue to mix. Add ground pepper (5-6 turns of the shaker), cilantro and lime. Continue to mix.

    You can add the lime earlier if the Avocados are a bit dry.

    Let sit in the fridge covered for 30 minutes with the pits (the pits stop guacamole from spoiling), so the flavors settle.

    Then take Joe’s advice on wine.
