The VerMints Team on 23rd Jan 2017
The superbowl is fastly approaching, so preparations around it need to be at least be thought about. It’s hard to know exactly what is best, easiest and most delicious to serve or not serve. Appetizers are one thing that is a must. They are so practical and make sense for munching on throughout the entire duration of the big game. Whether you’re an avid football supporter or trendy commercial watcher, snacks are a mutual consensus of an absolute must for plopping in front the TV for plays upon plays and commercials upon commercials. But the question always is what should be made!? We need easy (no brainer), yummy (of course) and healthy (obviously). We wanted something that was high protein, gluten-free, healthy fat powerhouse and extremely versatile. Guac. Guacamole is such a stunner for so many reasons, but mostly because it’s so darn delicious. The rich, thick, creamy, magical sauce has us swooning for hours. Not only does it have us gobbling up the amount in front of us, we also can’t help but dream for the next time it makes its appearance on our plate. Yes, we do have an obsession. AND for good reason! The main ingredient in guacamole is avocados, which are loaded with fiber, vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin K, vitamin E, vitamin C, B-vitamins, potassium and copper. He’s got looks, personality and good health – it’s a triple threat kind of fatty fruit! A superfood, as they say. The hunt was on for the perfect, most delicious, world’s best guacamole recipe, and sure enough we found a list of recipes like you wouldn’t believe – the best of the best – the most interesting, scrumptious combos. If you thought you loved guacamole before, just you wait.
Here are our 20 recipes of green dip perfection at your perusing, mouth-watering pleasure:
Guac with all the right bursts of sweet juice from those perfect little pom seeds. We never would’ve thought of it, so we’re glad Just A Taste decided to share her secrets. And for those of you who don’t necessarily enjoy savoring those moments picking out all the pom seeds (or have the bloody time), check out this life hack – HERE. Life. Made.
If you’re feeling a little Japanese flair for your big get together. This is the guac for you. All types of green and all types of spicy. A little spice for your game stressers is always a good thing. Blend it up and watch the crowds pounce.
So, we LOVE peaches. We LOVE blueberries. And we ADORE goat cheese. But all those combined with guacamole? O heck yes. We definitely indulged in licking the batter clean, but this time we’re licking the guac bowl clean. This really makes face-first-eating, so worth it.
Serving up secret gut health to all your guests in this wondrous guacamole recipe is beneficial to their immune system and well that’s just plain nice. Pat on the back to you. Live and active probiotics in fermented food, like sauerkraut, in this recipe, are critically important to the health of your brain, hormones, heart, lungs, liver and digestive organs. I’d say you’re one exceptional host.
There is nothing wrong with going classic. Different flavors and styles come and go, but one thing you can always count on to pull through: the chic, yummy, clean and simple mixture of classic guac. And Mr. Oliver does it up real nice with this 10 minute super-quick recipe.
If you’ll feeling like the team you’re rooting for could use a little fan gusto, we figured we might as well add this dip to the table. Guacamole made with the powerhouses of all powerhouses – Kale. So, when you need that front line to power through, you know that somehow eating kale the “powerhouse green” will translate over to how your team will perform, right?
And when you like your dips packed with a protein punch – we highly recommend, this high-protein guac mixed with, they call it secret, but we call it Greek. Greek Yogurt that is. All bits of creamy and all bits of full.
I mean when you’re making your guacamole you only want the best of the best not sub-par. So, why not opt for Thyme and Honey’s World’s Best Guacamole and show your troops what’s what.
Good Lord. That sweet, smoky, tropical, juicy pineapple mixed with the creamy avo, tangy line and zip of the peppers gives this guac a fancy little twist with big flavor. And by fancy twist we mean a variation we want to make much, much more regularly.
Mixin’ a little green veggie with another green veggie – you get green on green deliciousness. A little different approach to an already drool-worthy dip. Mix it up, because you’re smart enough. And have divine tastes.
We love guacamole. We love hummus. So, why not combine the two? Peach and Plenty did just that, and we figured it’d be delish, but not this delish. Smooth, gainless, sultry goodness.
Little green buttery nut combined with green buttery avocado is a perfect duo. Makes for a protein richness you really can’t live without. Make it saucier to drench on everything. Hey, no judgment here.
This appetizer has an excellent source of healthy fats and protein. Plus it is perfect for many dietary lifestyles – vegetarian, gluten-free, low-carb and Paleo. It can be eggs with guac or guac with eggs – you choose.
