Superbowl Sunday is the day that the most amount of guacamole is consumed. It is the beginning of the Haas Avocado season and it looks like it will be a good year.

If you want to mix things up, try a different variety of avocado, chile, citrus, garlic, or onion. As an example, you can try this guacamole recipe:
Guacamole is one of the easiest dips to make and one of the most satisfying. Simply serve with Tortilla Chips and you have yourself a perfect Superbowl Sunday Snack. Who can go wrong when your main ingredient is avocado.~
