“Go Ducks” Guacamole

Guacamole perfection for UO Duck fans.

This recipe is so fun!

Leave it to Mark Bittman to come up with a loaded guacamole that tastes fabulous, feeds more people and, as luck would have it, is perfect for serving at UO Duck football parties. Woohoo.

I’ve actually been saving the recipe for quite some time. I was very curious, but also a little skeptical, about the lettuce and corn.

But, I’m here to tell you now, that it works brilliantly.  My circle of Duck fans gobbled it up last weekend before the Ducks stomped Arizona 56 to 31.

Maybe it’s even lucky guacamole? Well, it’s definitely ducky guacamole!

  • 3 avocados, skin and pits removed

Make guacamole no more than an hour before ready to serve for freshest results…

Mash the avocados in a large bowl.
