SuperBowl Eats: White Corn and Black Bean Guacamole

Ok. Just to warn you - this guacamole is completely addicting and will disappear in mere minutes after putting it out for your guests to enjoy. Pro entertaining tip: make a couple of batches and keep an one in a covered container chilling in the fridge.  Just when the bowl is being scraped to get the last little bit of this guacamole goodness out... BAM - pull out your other fresh batch and prepare to be praised! Hehehe!

Give me guacamole, good tortilla chips, an icy cold margarita and I am as happy as a clam.  Especially in the SUN. But since it is freezing cold and almost February, I will instead enjoy my guac, chips and icy cold margarita while watching the SuperBowl and screaming GO EAGLES!!


Ingredients 

4 Ripe Avocados
Juice of 1 Lime
2 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Cilantro
1/2 Cup Canned Black Beans, rinsed
1/2 Cup White Corn {Fresh is best when in season, but frozen or canned works well}
3 Tablespoons Green Onion, chopped
1 Teaspoon Cumin
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder {adds a subtle flavor - fresh garlic can overwhelm guacamole}
1/2 Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper {or more if you like it spicy!}
Salt and Freshly Cracked Black Pepper to taste

{Seeing these fresh ingredients beautifully arranged makes me so happy.  I always make it a point to gather my ingredients, cooking utensils and bowls/dishes before I begin preparing recipes.  I start with a super clean and empty surface and arrange the ingredients just so. It turns the duty of cooking into a beautiful experience.}

{In a large mixing bowl, add in your avocado, lime juice and cilantro. Mash together until smooth. By mashing the cilantro with the avocado it releases the flavor. I know everyone is not a fan of cilantro {how is this even possible!?!}, so of course if you don't enjoy the taste of it, leave it out.


{To the avocado/lime juice/cilantro mixture, add in your black beans and white corn and chopped green onion.}




{Season with the salt, pepper, garlic salt, crushed red pepper, cumin and black pepper.}




{Serve in a pretty bowl and serve immediately!}


You don't even want to know how many football Sundays this year I've made and devoured this perfect guacamole.  And tequila is NOT optional. :)

xoxo, thanks for reading!
