Alyssa Collazo: Spicy Guacamole♥

Spicy Guacamole♥

What are your Big Game Day Traditions? Do you create a game score bracket? Set up a tag-football pick up game to play before? Or do you just watch for the commercials and food? My family is HUGE on sports, so Game Day is pretty serious for us and we do just about everything to prepare for the Big Day. My favorite tradition is definitely the food. I like seeing what everyone comes up with and sampling everything. This year I decided to spice up an old family favorite recipe and thanks to Mezzetta, it was mess free and delicious.

Chips and Dip are a must have for the Big Game Day, right? I love Guacamole. You can use chips or even bread. It's easy to make and just about everyone loves it. This time around I used Mezzetta Deli Sliced Tamed Jalapeno Peppers. Have you ever diced an actual jalapeno pepper? It's a long messy process, but with Mezzetta Jalapeno Peppers they are already sliced. All you have to do is remove the seeds and dice away!

Here is my Spicy Guacamole recipe

2 Avocados
1 Jar of Mezzetta Deli Sliced Tamed Jalapeno Peppers
1 Firm Medium Tomato
1 Medium onion, diced  
1/2 bunch of Cilantro
2 cloves garlic, pressed
3 tbsp Lime juice
1/2 tsp Salt, or to taste
1/4 tsp Black pepper, or to taste

Cut avocados in half, remove seed and scrape them out into a bowl. Smash with a potato masher or a fork (Leave some chunks)  
Dice onion and add it to the bowl
Remove Seeds from Mezzetta Deli Sliced Tamed Jalapeno Peppers, dice and add it to the bowl. I used about 10 Jalapeno slices
Cut tomato in half and remove seeds. Dice you tomato and add it to the bowl 
Press garlic than finely chop your cilantro and add it to the bowl
Add Lime juice, Salt and Pepper
Mix everything together and Garnish your dish with Mezzetta Deli Sliced Tamed Jalapeno Peppers, I used two slices. 

And there you have it, the perfect Game Day dip. This Spicy Guacamole is full of flavor, colorful and your guests will surely want more, plus the recipe. If you want the dip a little spicier, add 1/4 tsp of the Mezzetta Deli Sliced Tamed Jalapeno Peppers juice and you'll feel your taste-buds explode!
