Game Day Eats: 13 Guacamole Recipes We Love

Guacamole is a staple party food that's practically mandatory at game day gatherings. We've been to a fair number of fêtes where a sad, browning tub of store-bought guac languishes amidst the celebration spread. There are really few excuses for not making your own—it's almost as easy as buying it pre-made and tastes infinitely better. While a classic guacamole studded with lime, cilantro, and chiles is great as both a condiment and a dip, you can also think of it as a base for any number of inventive and out-of-the-ordinary flavor combinations. This roundup starts off with our basic recipe, followed by a dozen transformative variations. See them all in the slideshow or jump to your favorite from the list below.
