Football season is now in full swing, which means lots of game watching parties, fantasy football drafts, and tailgating. Every event is bound to have chips and guacamole, but since it’s fall, and apple season, why not change up your guacamole a little bit?
After going apple picking with my friends, I ended up with a lot of apples. I made a Caramel Apple Spread, but there were still apples left over! So I chopped them up and put them in my guacamole in place of onions. And it was absolutely delicious, and added a nice bit of sweetness.
To make Apple Guacamole, you’ll need:
3 avocados for every
1 apple (I used Fuji apples but you’re welcome to play around with different kinds)
Cute serving dishes from your favorite college football team (Ok, this is optional, but why not use this opportunity to show your school pride?!)
Begin by slicing the avocados in half and squeezing them into a bowl (squeezing is much quicker than chopping and the end result is the same).
Then slice and dice your apple into little pieces.
Add your apple pieces to the bowl.
Cut the lime in half and squeeze the juice into the bowl. Then add sea salt to taste and small pieces of cilantro. Now combine everything together.
And you’re ready to serve the guacamole with tortilla chips, veggies, or whatever else you want!
See how long it takes your guests to notice the apple substitution!
My Apple Guacamole is delicious and the perfect fall twist on the classic dish.
Now dig in, relax, and go back to cheering on your favorite team… which had better be the Texas Longhorns!
