Game Day Chili Lime Shrimp and Guacamole Tostadas
This recipe is sponsored by Wholly Guacamole, which I love and eat on the regular. As always though, my opinion remains my own.
It’s SUPER BOWL TIIIIME!!
Whether you’re having people over to watch the game or going to someone else’s Super Bowl party, chances are you’re going to be making some game-watching snacks to eat while you cheer on your favorite team. It’s all so exciting!
It’s not an exaggeration to say that guacamole is on the menu pretty much any time I have people over or I’m bringing something to share at a party. It’s just the most universally-loved, versatile appetizer and really – does anyone notlike a good guac? According to a recent survey, 55% of Americans are planning on eating guacamole on game day*, which I don’t think for a second is an overestimate. Guacamole is one of the healthier choices out there for game day and every day: avocados are full of good fats, as well as fiber, potassium and vitamin E. So much better than that gloppy artichoke dip that’s like sucking down a bottle of mayonnaise. Yuck.
One thing about making guacamole though: it needs to be planned. Avocados are generally sold unripe, so if you over-or-undershoot your guac-making dates, you’ll be on the wrong side of the goalpost when it comes to making the dip. No bueno. Trust me – I’ve had to run around the city many times looking for ripe avocados for a last-minute guac, and it’s not usually a successful endeavor. 38% of Americans have wanted to make guacamole but couldn’t because their avocados weren’t ripe.* Another 70% of avocado users have had to throw away some or all of an avocado because it was overripe and unusable.*
Thankfully, I’ve recently been introduced to Wholly Guacamole®, which is a ready-to-serve guac made like I make mine – with hand-scooped Hass avocados and no preservatives. I’ve tried other store-bought guacamoles and TBH they tasted like they had something citric or metallic in them that ruined the taste. Wholly Guacamole® has none of that nonsense, just great taste. And whoa! Their spicy flavor is amazing!!
Best of all, it’s always ready when you need it, so no more unripe avocado sadness!
Wholly Guacamole® also offers easy peel-and-serve guacamole trays that are perfect for pairing with your favorite veggies and chips or adding a flavorful punch to game day, like in my chili lime shrimp and guacamole tostada recipe below. DELISH!
