Last Sunday, as NFL’s AFC and NFC championships loomed on the

horizon, I pegged myself a Nostradamus of sorts. You see, preseason

I predicted an Eagles/Colts Super Bowl and with Peyton Manning

slingin’ the skin like his daddy and the Eagles ‘D’ staring at

country-boy Jake Delhomme. I gave myself a pat on the back for a

job well done.

Long story short, Manning yakked the ball up four times, Donovan

McNabb cracked a rib and I was left with a bruised ego and a sense

of bewilderment. So, with Super Sunday fast approaching I have

decided to bet on things I know I cannot lose. Friday night I took

home 15 bones in nickel-ante poker and Saturday night I won 100

more clams at Bingo Planet. Yes, I did spend my Saturday night at

Bingo Planet.

Therefore I know I’m right with my prediction for game MVP …

Guacamole.

Yeah that’s right, the green goo is glorious and you’d be a fool

to leave it out of your game plan. As your friendly neighborhood

big-game chef, I am prepared to unveil my mother’s magical recipe

for all to enjoy.

Nancy’s Friggin’ Amazing GuacaMOLE. (You have to accentuate the

mole part.)

2 ripe Avocados

1 cup of sour cream

1 small minced onion

1 ripe tomato

1 tsp lemon juice

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp oregano

1/4 tsp cumin

1 tsp salt

1 small can diced green chilies

and the kicker, 1-2 jalapenos

Now, toss all these wonderful ingredients into a blender and

chop those fools up. Watch for a thick, yet dip-able consistency.

Allow the guac to mingle in the fridge for 1-2 hours. This is to

let the spices get to know one another – when they trust each other

they work better together.

Then grab some friends, snag some chips and munch on.

The dip lasts quite some time. It may develop a dark-green

liquidy film after a few weeks, but don’t worry, scrape it off and

eat what was preserved underneath. I realize that may destroy many

people’s appetite for this treat, but those who go through with it

will surely taste a piece of heaven. (Surely the Israelites dipped

their manna in some guac.)

The Pats could do without Tom Brady or Tedy Bruschi, the

Panthers without Stephen Davis, but you, my friend, cannot do

without guacaMOLE.
