Super Bowl party treats: tomatillo guacamole

See also

Are you one of the Americans who really believes the excitement about the Super Bowl falls into these three categories (in descending order): 1) the football game; 2) the commercials; and, 3) the food?

Actually, it may very well go more like this: food first, then a toss-up between the game and the commercials. The game may actually edge out the commercials now that so many are “leaked” in advance.

According to Chef and Cooking Show Host Kelsey Nixon, tomatillo guacamole is a must-have for every Super Bowl party. Give it a try and determine if it will become a permanent item on future party menus.
