If you are a basketball fan, and even if you are not, you are undoubtedly aware that March Madness, the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament is almost in full swing.Cutting board March madness
That wonderful smell ladies and gentlemen is not only spring in the air, but the smell of nachos, chips and many finger foods. Spring is not only equated to melting snow, longer days and warmer sun, but spring, means…March Madness!!!
March Madness is a time where people everywhere who may not typically follow College Basketball become frenzied as the USA TV networks show us talented student athletes battling for the ultimate goal in NCAA basketball: a trip to the Final Four!
Much like the Super Bowl, The Final Four is a time of gathering with friends and family to enjoy watching some very good basketball while indulging in some fun snacks! To enable you to focus on the games as opposed to standing over your large wooden cutting board preparing food, we have come up with a wonderful snack that can be made ahead of time.
Guacamole is a dip that is made from avocados and the secret to delicious guacamole is ripe avocados. (A ripe avocado will give a little when you press the skin.)
2 ripe avocados, cubed
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon of fresh lime or lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 ripe tomato, seeds and pulp removed, chopped
1/2 (or more to your taste) jalapeno pepper, seeds removed, finely chopped
Serve with tortilla chips, sit down and enjoy the Road to the Final Four!
