Best Creamy Guacamole for the Big Game

I like my guacamole with a rich, creamy texture. And Hubs loves my recipe, so I thought I'd share. With the Superbowl coming up, it's the perfect time of year to experiment with some new dip ideas. I hope you like this one!

Nachos, wings, guacamole, Buffalo chicken dip, salsa, and toss in a veggie tray - my idea of a perfect football feast!


2 large or 3 small ripe avocados
3 cloves garlic, pressed
1/4 cup sour cream
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon chipotle seasoning (or you could use chili powder)
salt & pepper to taste
generous dash cayenne (optional - you can omit if you want a milder dip)
1/2 medium tomato, finely chopped (optional)

Cut avocados in half and scoop out the flesh into a medium mixing bowl. Mash well.
Add garlic, lemon juice, sour cream, and seasonings. Combine thoroughly.
Toss in chopped tomato and mix to distribute.
Have a taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.
Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight to allow the flavours to develop.

Serve with tortilla chips or crisp veggies. Or use as a side for a big plate of nachos.

Tip: Save one of the avocado pits to press into the guacamole. This will help to stop the guac from darkening. If your guac does darken, just give it a really good stir to freshen up and bring back the gorgeous green.
