Healthy Dip: Guacamole for Super Bowl

Holy Guacamole Super Bowl.

I once heard a rumor that the sale of avocados was over the top on Super Bowl Day. It’s only a rumor according to snopes.com. Sales do rise by 5 percent not 67 percent. The biggest selling holiday for avocados is Cinco de Mayo (May 5).

However, guacamole is a popular dip to serve for Super Bowl parties. It’s a perfect match for tortilla chips, chips of all kind, and crudites or raw vegetables. Avocados are usually on sale the week before the Super Bowl. Don’t wait until the last minute to buy the avocados because they will most likely need to ripen.

Avocado is a nutritious “fruit” filled with monosaturated oils otherwise known as good fats or healthy fats. Guacamole would be a better alternative than sour cream dip unless it’s made with light or no fat sour cream. I personally dislike the no fat sour cream but like the light sour cream.

Here are some tempting guacamole recipes. You will probably need to double the recipes.
