It’s that time of year when everyone is cheering on their favorite team, hoping that they make it to the “big” game.

Me? I’m more worried about what is going to be on the table than what teams are playing. Honestly – I don’t even usually remember who is playing. For me, it’s all about the food!!

Which is ok by me. I’m happy enough to spend my days looking for the perfect football food.

And it doesn’t get more perfect than guacamole. Unless you add in pineapple and mango to that guacamole. Yep – I’m taking a tropical turn with this one!! Since I’m ready for warmer temps, and since I can’t change the weather outside, I thought that I might as well bring a little bit of the tropics to my living room. I have a thing for pairing pineapple and avocados (seriously – they go so well together!), so I thought I’d whip up a batch of guacamole and mix in some fresh, juicy pineapple. And why stop there? I added in some mango as well, and it was the perfect addition.

This is definitely game day food!

Tropical Guacamole ingredients

If you didn’t already know, I’m a totally avocado addict. I could seriously eat one every day, just sprinkled with a little bit of salt. But they are so versatile, too, used in main dishes, appetizers, or as a topper to tacos or even hot dogs. Avocados from Mexico are available all year long, no matter the holiday or occasion (or even the day of the week!;))

And of course, Avocados from Mexico are the perfect addition to your game day appetizers, like Mexican Sushi, 7-Layer Dip, or Pigs in a Blanket with Avo Dipping Sauce.

    This guacamole looks so delicious with that mango and pineapple — and it’s perfect for football this weekend! :)

  3. I love, love avocados; especially turned into guacamole! I recently shared a recipe for mango pomegranate guacamole and loved how the sweet fruit paired with the spiciness of the guacamole. I know I would love this version with pineapple as well!

  4. I love the ingredients in your guac. I featured all the contestants of the #guacbowl on my Friday Five over at Feed Your Soul Too – http://www.feedyoursoul2.com/2014/01/friday-five-guacamole-addition.html. Good luck!

    this is my new addiction! I found it on Pinterest, and now that summer is finally close it’s the perfect snack. I left out the cilantro (I think it tastes like soap) and added a dash of cumin and celery seed….literally making my mouth water just typing this!
