Puppy Bowl Party

by Steve, February 3rd, 2013

We had our third annual Puppy Bowl Party today. Today’s menu included:

  • Cheese Pizza!!
  • Chips and Cheesey Poofs!!
  • Nachos!!
  • Guacamole!!
  • Chocolate Fondue!!

I’ve never shared my guacamole recipe with anyone, so if you’re reading this, consider yourself elite. I honed this recipe over many years working produce.

Guacamole

    2 large avocados, pitted and skinned DO NOT MASH!
    1 tomato, chopped
    Juice of 1 lime
    1/4 onion, chopped
    cilantro, chopped
    jalapeño, chopped
    pinch salt
    pinch cumin

Put all ingredients in a glass mixing bowl. With a sharp knife, slice the avos in the bowl while spinning it with your left hand. WHACK WHACK WHACK WHACK… hard to describe exactly, but keep doing it till the avos are finely chopped, not mashed. THIS IS MY SECRET. I’VE NEVER TOLD ANYBODY BEFORE. EXCEPT MY WIFE. (Actually, a vegan volunteer at a co-op taught me this trick back in the late 80s. It works better because mashing the avos bruises them.) If you don’t want it too spicy, sub a pinch of chili powder for the jalapeño, or cut the seeds out.

Chocolate Foundue

    12 oz. bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
    8 oz. heavy cream
    1 Tablespoon sugar

Heat the cream in a sauce pan until it barely starts to bubble. Whisk in the chocolate chips and sugar. Transfer to a preheated fondue pot. Thin with milk if it gets too thick.
