Joe Montana’s Touchdown Guacamole/ It’s Tailgating Time at #SundaySupper

I have loved football forever but I was really addicted to it back when Joe Montana was playing with the 49ers. Those were great years of football!! My friend Karen and I would watch all the games but especially her team the Miami Dolphins and mine the San Fransisco 49ers. We had a friendly rivalry going on at that time.

Watching football and munching away on food kind of go hand in hand. So when I saw that #SundaySupper was doing a tailgating party I was all over it. Ken had found this recipe a few years ago and even though he doesn’t like guacamole he loves this one. Chunky and full of flavor. Thanks to Ken for finding it and to Joe Montana for all those great years of football and for this fabulous guacamole. Love it!!

  1. Very excited to see this! Joe Montana’s son is the QB of my college’s football team right now and I’m going back for homecoming because it’s my 10 year reunion. I’ll definitely be making this to take to the game with me! (and if I run into Joe there-I’ll let him have a bite!)

  6. I love a good guacamole and have not had any with black beans in it. Since I also love black beans I think it would be really great. Nice kick with the jalapenos in there too. Yummy!

  22. You can never go wrong with guacamole in my book. I love it and have been known to hover over it at a party trying to claim it all LOL I love the little twists to a classic guacamole in this recipe. I have been on a black bean kick lately so this is right up my alley!

  25. Can you believe that up until a few years ago, I was also too afraid to try avocados and guacamole? I know – what the heck was I thinking? Thankfully I’ve change my ways and I can’t get enough of the green stuff. This sounds fantastic! I love how chunky & jam-packed your guacamole is.

  34. Saw this on the Pinterest board, and just had to comment!! Can I just tell you how much I love Joe??? I was in high school and college during his days, and went to see a few of the Super Bowl Parades in SF (because they always won!!) and I know that one time he actually waved at me. At least that’s what I choose to think. Montana, Clark, Rice… ahhhh! Those were the days!
    If this is Joe’s I’m sure it’s good!!
