I’m about to tell you something controversial, something you may not love. Football annoys me. Not only does it dominate my television screen, but it kind of becomes the hub of our weekends. And what’s up with the fantasy football teams? Hello, it’s fantasy, so why is it necessary to take over the laptop, iPad and TV to check scores and stats of some fantasy game?
Can you tell I’m a teensy bit bitter? Clearly football has officially taken over my house, and if Brian had it his way – it would also take over the kitchen. For whatever reason, he feels as though every football game is cause for some type of mini party – complete with snacks. And guess who is supposed to be making these snacks? Yep, that would be me.
I have stash of game day grub recipes that typically make an appearance every Sunday to keep the boys happy, but sometimes I want something just for me. Something outside the realm of our standard Spicy Sausage Dip, Jalapeno Popper Dip and Sweet and Spicy Wings. Wandering around the grocery store (as I love to do), I picked up a few gorgeous Hass avocados. At home I tossed in a couple of ingredients I already had on hand, and suddenly we had a pretty rocking dip.
This Avocado Dip is a fun spin on traditional guacamole – it’s bursting with bold flavors and is sure to satisfy that craving for game day grub. Although I’m not making any promises – it may even make football a little more tolerable for those of us less than enthused about the pigskin.
