Chunky Game Day Guac

8 Sep

I have the amazing ability to pick out THE WORST avocados ever.  I am always second guessing myself at the store.  I stand there picking up dozens of avocados and looking for color and firmness.  In reality, I have no idea what I am supposed to look for.  Are they supposed to be bright green? Slightly brown? Firm to the touch? Soft?  Do they smell like anything? Whenever I want to make a taco salad, my avocados are complete mush.  Whenever I want to make guacamole, my avocados are hard as apples.  I can never win…until now!

I decided at the last minute today to make guacamole to enjoy during the Steelers game.  I had all of the ingredients for it except for the dreaded avocados.  So I quickly ran out to the store and just picked up the first two avocados I saw.  No special selection process, just grab and go.  I came back home to find that they were PERFECT.  I was elated so I felt that this Chunky Game Day Guacamole deserved a blog post to celebrate this momentous occasion.

    Just a tip if you get avocados and need them to soften and ripen quickly put them in a brown bag with a banana. Apparently the ripening chemical in bananas will also help to ripen other fruits and veggies faster.

    Now can you deliver some guacamole to the north hills for the game???

      Hmmm interesting! Thanks for the tip! Sorry, the guacamole is already half gone 🙂
