Superbowl Countdown #3

Superbowl Countdown #3

Just thought I'd jump on the ban wagon, and participate in some fun Superbowl Mania.


Q. What infamous halftime event spiced up Super Bowl XXXVIII?

A. Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction."

Q. Who was the very first famous entertainer to grace Superbowl halftime?




2 ripe avocados
½ red onion, minced (about 1/2 cup)
1-2 serrano chiles, stems and seeds removed, minced
2 tablespoons cilantro leaves, finely chopped
1 tablespoon of fresh lime or lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
A dash of freshly grated black pepper
1/2 ripe tomato, seeds and pulp removed, chopped


1 Cut avocados in half. Remove seed. Scoop out avocado from the peel, put in a mixing bowl.

2 Using a fork, mash the avocado. Add the chopped onion, cilantro, lime or lemon, salt and pepper and mash some more. Chili peppers vary individually in their hotness. So, start with a half of one chili pepper and add to the guacamole to your desired degree of hotness. Be careful handling the peppers; wash your hands thoroughly after handling and do not touch your eyes or the area near your eyes with your hands for several hours.

3Refrigerate until ready.

****Keep the tomatoes separate until ready to serve.
****Cover with plastic wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole to prevent oxidation from the air reaching it.
****Many times I'll add sour cream for an extra creamy Guac...
