CONTEST NOW CLOSED - Guac On! National Guacamole Day is Around the Corner.

P2300_PUBLICMOBILE_Banner_Guacamole_DESIGN_V2_May3_May03.png

 

Break out the avocados, ladies and gentlemen, because this Sunday is – yep, you guessed it – Guacamole Day! Perhaps the most important holiday of the year, we should all take the time to celebrate by indulging in the king of dips. Guacamole is one of those rare tasty snacks you don’t have to feel guilty about eating, because it’s nutrient dense and packed with healthy fats. And that’s not all. Here’s a few fun guac facts, we bet you didn’t know:

 

  1. An estimated 104.9 million pounds of avocados were consumed while watching the 2017 Superbowl. What are the chances it was just one guy?
  2. The world record for largest guacamole serving is 8,351 pounds. More than 350 people helped prepare the dip as part of Tancitaro’s 7th Annual Avocado Festival. That’s like the size of a small army, but for making guac.  
  3. Need potassium? Avocados have more of it than bananas. And, please don’t try and make guac using bananas.
  4. Avocados mature on a tree, but don’t ripen until after they are picked. That’s why you should always do the squeeze test at the grocery store. Nothing worse than having to wait five days to make guacamole.

 

Did you know any of those? If you did, you must be a guacagenius! We bet you have an awesome guacamole recipe up your sleeves, and we’d love to hear it! Comment below with your best guacamole recipe by Friday, Sept. 21st  at 12:00PM EST and we’ll randomly select three winners who will receive a President's Choice $50 Gift Card. That means if you win, no more passing up the green goodness because it’s extra! Have a great weekend and know that you’re a Guac Star.

Re: Guac On! National Guacamole Day is Around the Corner.

I am a lot better at eating guacamole than making it.  I don't know if this recipe meets criteria, the rules don't seem to clear enough.  My recipe involves getting out the visa card and visiting my favorite local Mexican restaurant, Cielito Lindo. 

 

@Alan_K, the contest rule link is pointing to this thread.  I assume there is a separate link full of rules that hopefully won't void my entry.

Re: Guac On! National Guacamole Day is Around the Corner.

Yeah my recipee is similar but I just go to my Mexican friends house who makes it. It's a lot cheaper than flying to Mexico Smiley Happy

 

I find the most difficult part is getting ripe avocados. Typically at the store especially Costco they are super green and take 3-4 days to ripen

Re: Guac On! National Guacamole Day is Around the Corner.

Guacamole is a staple in our household, disappears quickly whenever it's made...

 

I keep it simple, 2-3 avocadoes spooned out into a bowl (must be ripe!), smashed to a mushy consistency. Squeeze one or two limes, add salt and cumin to taste and mix. Then dice tomatoes and cilantro if you wish to add (we often skip those when in a hurry).

 

On a side note, this Sunday the 16th is also Mexico's Independence Day! 🇲🇽

Re: Guac On! National Guacamole Day is Around the Corner.

My favourite recipe is a Harvey's Angus Burger, w/ bacon, cheese, onion, tomato, and BBQ instead of the guacamole.

 

Fries or rings on the side.
