Super Snacks

Our boys were very excited about watching the Super Bowl this afternoon. My younger son, age 10, is very interested in cooking. He proposed (and made) some spinach dip and also wanted guacamole. Premade guacamole tends to be pretty pricey, but Safeway had Haas avocados 2 for $1 this week. So, we splurged just a little and have some homemade guacamole waiting for the big game to start!

Here's how we made it. Mix the following together:

  • 2 ripe avocados, mashed with a fork
  • juice from 1/2 of a lemon (ours came from one of the lemon trees in the yard)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp to 1/4 cup salsa (we had some in the frig). Use more and spicier depending on your preference
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Chill for at least an hour, then enjoy! We'll be enjoying this with some chips from Costco ($3.95 for 5 lbs -- these last us a while!). Now, bring on the commercials, that's my favorite part of the game :)
