Game Day Guacamole

I am a purist when it comes to guacamole, no fancy add-ins here. To make up for my lack of adventure in my guacamole recipe, I have a few non-traditional recipes to make easy game-day snacks to help feed those hungry fans.
Game Day Guacamole
Ingredients:

Directions:

  • Halve, seed and cube the avocados.
  • Combine the chopped tomato, diced onion, cubed avocados, cilantro and jalapeño in a bowl.
  • Mash ingredients with a fork.
  • Add salt, pepper and fresh-squeezed lime juice.
  • Enjoy!

Tip: Using a fork gives you a chunky yet creamy texture that is hard to achieve with a food processor.


Guacamole Grilled Cheese
Guac Grilled CheeseYup, just went there, and there is no going back. I used leftover guacamole (like there is ever such a thing) to create this scrumptious grilled cheese with bacon. For game day, cut it into small square sized bites,  and all your fans will love it (and you will too).

Ingredients:

Directions:

  • Cook bacon according to directions.
  • While bacon is cooking, layer cheese onto one side of the bread.
  • Add guacamole to the other slice of bread.
  • Layer bacon on top of cheese.
  • Add another layer of cheese on top of bacon.
  • Put the two slices of bread together.
  • Add butter to frying pan on medium to low heat (optional).
  • Add sandwich, place a plate on top.
  • After approximately five minutes (or until golden brown), flip the sandwich.
  • After another 5 min (or until golden brown), remove from heat.
  • Cut into squares and serve.

Tip: While I used Monterey Jack cheese in this sandwich, other great options are Muenster, American, or any mild and melt-able cheese you have in your fridge.

Fried Avocado Sticks with Cilantro-Lime Dipping Sauce Fried Avocado

Ingredients:

This makes approximately 12-14 slices.

Directions:
Fried Avocado:
  • Set up your breading stations: Whisk the egg in a bowl with a splash of milk. Place the flour and panko on separate plates.
  • Halve and seed the avocado.
  • Cut avocado into long strips (one half is approximately six strips).
  • Place the avocado strip into the flour, then the egg mixture, and finally into the panko. Make sure to get an even coating.
  • Place the breaded strips on to a separate plate.
  • Repeat steps 4-6 until all strips are breaded.
  • Coat pan with oil, about 3/4″, on medium heat (wait until oil reaches approximately 350 degrees in temperature).
  • Add avocado strips to the pan for 3-4 minutes (or until golden brown).
  • Flip and fry for 3-4 minutes (or until golden brown).
  • Remove from pan with a slotted spoon, and let cool on a paper towel.
  • While they are cooling, make the dipping sauce.

Dipping Sauce:

  • Finely dice the garlic and cilantro.
  • Add sour cream to a bowl with the garlic, cilantro and lime juice.
  • Thoroughly mix all the ingredients together.
  • Salt to taste.
  • Dip and enjoy!

Tip: A great way to tell if your oil is hot enough to fry something is to throw just a few panko flakes into the oil; when it’s sizzling, it’s ready to go!
