Avocados on game day— not a want but a necessity. A delicious, delicious NECESSITY.
In fact, it's expected partiers will consume over 139 MILLION pounds of fresh avocados during the week's festivities! That's a lot of necessity.
But with great avocados comes great responsibility... and even greater possibility. So, just how do you plan on eating yours?
Sure, you could mash 'em up into guacamole and chip-n-dip to your heart's content, but after checking out the recipes below, you're going to rethink every avocado you ever laid eyes on.
Here are three unexpected yet totally game-day-appropriate ways to eat up those pretty, green babies.
Avocado Fries with Carne Asada
What's a potato? This avocado fries recipe from Josh Scherer of Culinary Bro-Down is made from 100 percent pure avocado and loaded with marinated carne asada, refried beans, Mexican crema, queso fresco and a "liberal squirting of Sriracha." I'll take 20.
Avocado and Bacon Deviled Eggs
With this Avocado and Bacon Deviled Eggs recipe from Josh Elkin on the playing field, the Easter Bunny's definitely getting a run for his money. Sorry, man, we prefer our eggs to be filled with creamy avocado and bacon-infused yolks -- not expired Tootsie Rolls.
Avocado Frito Pie Bombs
This insane Avocado Frito Pie Bombs recipe from Amy Erickson of Oh, Bite It! is lethal in the best possible way. It's exploding with flavors of baked avocado, chili cheese and Fritos chips.
