As co-owner of The Recipe ReDux I was compensated to manage this recipe contest.

We've wrapped up the college football season, so now it's on to Super Bowl snacks. I've seen estimates that more than 100 million pounds of guacamole will be eaten on Super Bowl Sunday.

Y'all. That's A LOT of guac!

The funny thing is I know  people who say they don't like guacamole... I'm not sure I believe they've actually ever even tried guacamole, though. I recall the last time someone told me "I don't eat guacamole" saying "Oh... you don't like it?" To which they said, "No... I just know I won't. I don't like the way it looks." 

Um, not liking the color of a food and thinking it tastes bad are two totally different things... but you see where I'm going, right?

I think avocados are beautiful. And I think guacamole is divine.

To me, that luscious green color just screams to me "CREAMY YUMMY GOODNESS!"

I mean seriously... I can't recall another fruit or vegetable that tastes basically like a good-for-you creamy butter (but even better tasting).

But I guess I can see where some people are averse to certain shades of green, which unfortunately leaves them crippled when it comes to the prepping for Super Bowl Sunday and its accompanying guacamole-fest.

That's where this comes in:

If green simply isn't your color, a little orange guac may just do the trick!
