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
about two cups
good-sized ripe Haas avocados, peeled and cut into chunks
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)
bunch scallions, white part only, sliced and diced
7-ounce can peeled green chiles, drained, seeded, and finely chopped
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.
