College Bowl season is upon us and guess what? It also means tailgating with your crew, cheering on your favorite team and cooking up your favorite football eats.
Whenever we tailgate or have game viewing get-togethers, my Fancy Guac recipe usually steals the show from the game action. Even if it’s for just a moment. After you try this guacamole, you honestly will not care who wins the game. Really!
This fancy guacamole made with Hass Avocados has to be the perfect (any) party food and it’s good for you! Hass Avocados are a nutrient-dense food choice with nearly 20 vitamins and minerals and it’s a great substitute for foods high in saturated fat. The mango and pomegranate sweetness will offset the creaminess of the avocado and will balance the spiciness from the chiles.
