In anticipation of this Sunday's Super Bowl, foodies will spend the weekend trying to create an accessible and yummy menu for their party, while party-goers will scramble to decide what to bring to the hyped-up fiesta. If you're charged with serving food, no matter what team you're rooting for, consider these party staples — now is not the time to give your guests something new, they crave the traditional "holiday" menu. But these recipes have that little Latin kick that'll have your friends returning for mas!
Guac like you've never had before. This one was inspired by a close friend in Paris whose mom used to add pineapple to her recipe. It's now one of my favorite interpretations and I'm sure it will be yours, too!
2 Haas avocados
5 tbsp cilantro, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup red onion, diced
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp salt
2 tsp black pepper
1.5 cup fresh pineapple, small chunks
1/4 cup red pepper, chopped
1/4 cup tomato, diced
1 tsp cumin * (you don’t have to, but I think it’s great to add)
Cut avocado in half and remove seed. Place in medium serving bowl, scooping out all of the avocado with a teaspoon. Mash avocado with fork, allowing some chunks to remain. Mash & stir longer if you want a smoother dip. Add cilantro, garlic, onion, tomato, pineapple, red pepper, salt and mix well. Add olive oil and pepper to taste. Mix again. Serve and please do enjoy! Serves about 5. Double if you want to feed the masses.
