Superbowl Guacamole and Tortilla Chips

Guacamole
I am a big NFL Football nerd. I follow the game throughout the whole year including the rookie combine, the draft, training, pre-season, and regular season right up until Superbowl.

Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays during the regular season are my favourite days — game days. Off season is the worst. But the Superbowl is the highlight of the year.

When it comes to snacks and eats — during the regular season on game day Sundays, we usually have a nice dinner and share a yummy dessert. But on game day for Superbowl, we up the ante and pull out all the stops.

This year — I’m making homemade guacamole and baked tortilla chips. I trial tested this recipe a couple weeks back for NFL Wildcard Weekend and it turned out so well that it’ll be the marquee appetizer on game day for Superbowl Sunday.

You can make this guac smooth or chunky depending on what you fancy. Tasty baked tortilla chips that you make at home are much better than store bought chips. If you’re looking for a healthy snack option that you can make at home, try these recipes below for Superbowl guacamole and baked tortilla chips.
