IRVINE, Calif. -- Just in time for the Super Bowl -- one of the most popular occasions of the year for California avocados -- the California Avocado Commission (CAC) here and the San Diego Charger Girls from "Avocado Country" are teaming up to share what they describe as the ultimate Super Bowl guacamole recipe.
"The best Super Bowl parties are those that have the best party foods and the best party foods include California avocados," said Lisa Simmons, a San Diego Charger Girl since 2001. "It's easy to add extra 'kick' to ordinary party foods simply by adding California avocado slices. We add them on top of chili, nachos and hamburgers or inside quesadillas."
According to the Snack Food Association, Americans double their average daily snack food consumption on Super Bowl Sunday on foods including avocados, tortilla chips, potato chips, pretzels and popcorn.
