The Stanley Cup Final is here! Time to call your neighbors, friends, and family for game night! And nothing goes better with game night than some delicious snacks. One of my favorite snacks to have when I’m watching a big sporting event is chips and guacamole. Guacamole is an excellent snack because it is super easy to make and you can add a lot or a little of the ingredients depending on how you like it. For this recipe you will need:
3 ripe avocados
2 small tomatoes (or 1 large), chopped, seeds removed
½ white onion, chopped (add more if desired)
2 cloves of garlic, minced or use minced garlic in a jar
Juice of ½ or 1 lemon or lime
1) Scoop out avocado pulp and remove pits. In a large bowl mash up avocados with potato masher or fork until desired consistency (chunky or smooth).
2) Add chopped tomato, onion, minced garlic. Combine ingredients.
3) Finally, add lime or lemon juice. I like to use quite a bit of juice because the citric acid keeps the avocados fresher. Taste the guacamole after you’ve used half of your lime or lemon. Add more if desired.
Everyone has a personal preference for guacamole. I prefer lime juice to lemon juice and I often add in some jalapeno or Serrano peppers or even hot sauce to give it an extra kick.
And just like that, you’ll have fresh guacamole to share with family and friends! Enjoy the Finals Pink Puck fans!
