I’ve written about the importance of football food before. (And let’s be real, the food is the only thing I’m interested in during a game ) But whether or not you are paying attention to the game, there’s no question that good football food is definitely important. Right Janetha?
One thing that I like to take into consideration when choosing football foods is – can it be made ahead of time? This is especially important when I’m taking football food to someone else’s house. It’s best to have it all ready to eat. Not imperative, but nice. You know, so you can pay attention to the game…
Or if you just want to pay attention to this little guy.
This particular recipe came from epicurious.com – my go-to site for appetizers and since I loved the last twist on guac that I tried, I thought a Thai version would be equally as delicious. Oh, and this totally counts as “healthy football food.” So dig in and cheer hard. For whoever or whatever you’re cheering for.
Thai Guacamole - serves 6-8 appetizer portions – inspired by Bon Appétit
- 4 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
- juice from 1 lime
- 1 jalapeño pepper, minced and seeds removed
- 1 tsp minced ginger
- 1 tsp chopped lemongrass
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- spices to taste: coriander, curry powder, salt
- 1 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
Cut up avocados. Add lime juice, jalapeño, ginger, lemongrass, garlic and spices to bowl.
Mash together and stir in cilantro.
Serve with tortilla chips or rice crackers.
*I would recommend serving the guacamole with Lundberg Lime Rice Chips - they were perfect!
