Super Bowl recipes: Enhance your menu with guacamole

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

No Super Bowl food spread is complete without dip, and there aren't many dips better or easier to make than guacamole.

While chicken wings, hamburgers and other entrees are usually the stars of a Super Bowl spread, dips also serve a valuable role on the menu. Guacamole is not only a delicious option, but it's easy to make and is quickly becoming one of the favorite Super Bowl dishes.

According to Shape.com, more than 79 million pounds of avocados will be consumed during the 2013 Super Bowl. That's more than 158 million avocados, or enough to stretch the length of a football field in a 30-foot pile. A lot of those avocados will be used in guacamole, which can be made following the simple recipe from Shape.com below:

Ingredients:

  • 2 avocados
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 of a yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 of a mango, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 of a yellow peach peeled and diced
  • 1/2 of a Granny Smith apple peeled and diced
  • 1/2 of a habanero pepper, seeds removed and minced
  • 1 teaspoon of slivered basil
  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate seeds

Steps:

  1. Cut both avocados in half and remove the pit. Remove the avocado from the shell then cut into small cubes.
  2. Put the cubed avocado pieces into a mixing bowl and mash with a fork until the pieces form a chunky mixture.
  3. Stir in the remaining ingredients, leaving half of the pomegranate seeds for a garnish. Mix the components together until you've formed a consistent and balanced mix.
  4. Use the remaining pomegranate seeds as a garnish on top, then serve.
