Super Bowl recipes 2013: Try a quick, easy guacamole dip

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

Guacamole dip is a quick snack that anybody can whip up for Super Bowl Sunday.

The Super Bowl is always a good excuse for doing some cooking, and if you want to keep things simple -- or simply provide something ahead of the main course -- making some guacamole dip is not a bad idea.

Here's one particular take on guac, and here's what you'll need (note: the proportions below make five cups of dip, so adjust as necessary for the size of your party):

  • Juice of 1 to 2 small limes (do not use Key limes)
  • 3 medium cloves garlic, mashed to a puree with a little kosher salt
  • 1 to 2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup diced scallion (white and light-green parts; may substitute 1/4 cup minced red onion)
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped cilantro leaves
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 grape tomatoes, coarsely chopped or cut into halves
  • 5 to 6 Hass avocados, cut in half and pitted; sprinkle cut sides with lime juice to keep them from turning brown
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons regular or low-fat sour cream (don't use nonfat)
  • Dash hot pepper sauce, preferably Tabasco

The cumin, scallions, cilantro, lime juice, garlic and tomatoes should be stirred together in a bowl along with some salt and pepper. From there, it's simply a matter of squashing the avocados and adding that to the mix, along with the sour cream. Add a bit of the hot sauce for flavor, if you are so inclined.
