Food for Watching Football
My husban's favorite football team, the Jets, made the playoffs, so we've been spending a lot of time in front of the hi-def TV lately. And that means I've been making lots of football-watching snacks.
A few games ago, I made nachos, and since I had two ripe avocados in the house, I decided to make guacamole, too. Now, I have an excellent recipe for mild guacamole that showcases the avocado and does not leave one with bad onion breath, but it does call for 1/2 a fresh lime, and the other day I was out of lime. What to do? I scanned the fridge, and my eyes rested on a jar of Pace Salsa Verde that I'd brought home from work. The company had sent me a bunch of new flavors to try, but I had yet to open this jar. Inspiration struck.It's green, like avocados,I mused.This could work!I read the label, which mentioned smoky paprika—my new favorite spice, incidently, which is delicious on grilled chicken breasts. I took a taste: it was medium-spicy, with a nice sharp bite. I took a measuring spoon from the silverware drawer and put two tablespoons into my bowl of mashed-up avocadoes. I stirred it up, added salt to taste, and brought it into the living room.
Now, Rich doesn't like salsa. Pretty much avoids it. So I held my breath as he scooped up a big bite of guacamole and put it in his mouth. He sat back on the couch, stared up at the tv screen, and said, "Great guacamole, honey."
Success! And no-lime crisis averted! We finished the entire bowl of guacamole. And you know, every time I've made it since then (knock wood, the Jets keep winning!), I've used my little secret ingredient. It's my new favorite.
