But, because there's still an entire football season ahead (guac always makes an appearance), we wanted to inspire you to think outside of the bowl with a zingy strawberry guacamole recipe, courtesy of the hot, new River North restaurant Ay Chiwowa. Sure, it sounds a bit odd — but trust us when we say that this sweet 'n' savory dip will be a new game-day crowd-pleaser.
4 large strawberries
¼ cup jalapeños
¼ cup red onion
cilantro to taste
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1. Dice the strawberries, jalapeño, onions, and avocado into quarter-inch squares. Finely chop the cilantro.
2. Mash avocado with a fork or potato masher until smooth and add in additional ingredients, including juice of lemon, salt, and pepper to taste.
3. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips and get ready to swoon!
