It's Beer Time: Super Bowl Pairing
January 15th, 1967 a long standing tradition began with the gathering of friends and family to cheer on their favorite team, in what we know now as the Super Bowl. A lot has changed since that game, and a lot has stayed the same. The names, packaging, and flavors of beer are different, but beer remains the favorite beverage to celebrate the Super Bowl with.
With more of choices to choose from than your fridge can hold here are some recommendations from Carlos, the GM, and beer buyer at Cork, that represent the tried and true and a little something out side of the box.
Traditional Guacamole and Chips
Fresh is way better, and it take less than 20 minutes to prepare.
What you will need:
3 Haas avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
1 lime, juiced,
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 medium onion, diced(I prefer red)
1/2 jalapeno pepper,(Serrano if you prefer hotter) seeded and minced
2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1 large clove garlic, minced.
How to make it:
In a large bowl place the scooped avocado and lime juice, toss to coat. Drain, and reserve the lime juice, after all of the avocados have been coated. Using a potato masher or a fork, add the salt, cumin, and cayenne and mash/ mix leaving nice chunks of the avocado. Then, fold in the onions, jalapeno, tomatoes, cilantro, and garlic.
Add 1 tablespoon of the reserved lime juice. Let sit at a cool room temperature lightly covered for 1 hour and then serve with your favorite corn tortilla chips. Recipe adapted from Alton Brown
