A “Super Bowl of Avocados” for your Guacamole

Record volumes of avocados are expected to move for Super Bowl 2016. About 120 million pounds are expected to ship in the U.S. in the run-up to the big game!! Whether or not you like avocados, you really have to admire the way marketers have owned the Super Bowl! For no particular reason other than force of will, avocados—and the guacamole they produce—are indelibly linked with this major American sporting event.

Give our customer service team or your produce consultant a call today to find out more on purchasing some of these “alligator pears”!

5 Fresh Ideas

To help you better embrace the official fruit of the Super Bowl, we came up with five creative ways to make a better guacamole.

  1. Fast and dirty
    In place of the tomato, cilantro and red onion, stir in 1/2 cup of your favorite jarred salsa, 1 tablespoon olive brine, and 2 tablespoons chopped green olives.
  1. Mango-balsamic
    In place of the tomato, stir in the diced flesh of 1 mango. Use scallions in place of the red onion and 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar in place of lime juice.
  1. Chipotle-corn
    Stir in 1 minced chipotle and 1 tablespoon adobo sauce from a can of chipotles in adobo. Add 1/2 cup corn kernels.
  1. Tzatziki
    Use 1 cup finely diced seedless cucumber in place of the tomato and red onion. Use dill in place of the cilantro. Stir in 2 minced cloves garlic.
  1. Roasted garlic and poblano
    Roast a head of garlic with a little olive oil until tender and brown, about 30 minutes at 400 F. Roast a poblano pepper, turning frequently, until the skin chars. Remove the charred skin from the pepper, then chop the flesh. Squeeze the garlic pulp from the skin and mash. Mix both into the guacamole, omitting the onion.
