Author Notes

In the wake of the Jets' AMAZING victory over the Patriots Sunday evening, I've taken the liberty of renaming this dip in Gang Green's honor, As a prelude to the chili that accompanies most Super Bowl gatherings, this dip beats the "spread" every time. Plus, it's green, like the Jets' jerseys!! J-E-T-S!!! (Photo courtesy of the New York Jets) —wssmom

What You'll Need
  • 2 good-sized ripe Haas avocados, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 ripe tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and cut into chunks (as finding nice tomatoes in the middle of winter is about as easy as kicking a 54-yard field goal into the wind, you can substitute a can of top-quality Italian tomatoes)
  • 1 bunch scallions, white part only, sliced and diced
  • 1 7-ounce can peeled green chiles, drained, seeded, and finely chopped
  • 4 ounces bacon, fried to a crisp and crumbled
  • 1/2 lime
  1. In a large bowl, summoning the spirit of the Jets' intimidating defensive line, use a potato masher to combine the avocado, tomatoes, scallions, chiles and bacon until mixed, but not totally smooth. Refrigerate until kickoff. Just before serving, squeeze in the juice of the half-lime, stir, scrape into a football-themed crock and serve with veggies and/or corn chips.
