3 Unexpected Ways To Use Avocados On Game Day [WATCH]

Avocados on Game Day—not a want, rather, a necessity. A delicious, delicious NECESSITY.

In fact, it’s expected that Big Game partiers will consume over 139 MILLION pounds of fresh avocados during the week’s festivities! That’s a lot of necessity.

But with great avocados comes great responsibility, and even greater possibility, so just how do you plan on eating yours? Sure, you could mash ‘em up into guacamole and chip-n-dip to your heart’s content, but after checking out the recipes below, you’re going to rethink every avocado you’ve ever laid eyes on.

Here are three unexpected yet totally Game Day appropriate ways to eat up those pretty green babies.

Avocado Fries with Carne Asada


What’s a potato? These fries from Josh Scherer (Culinary Brodown) are made from 100% pure avocado and loaded with marinated carne asada, refried beans, Mexican crema and queso fresco, and a ‘liberal squirting of Sriracha.’ I’ll take twenty.

Avocado and Bacon Deviled Eggs


With Josh Elkin’s recipe for Avocado and Bacon Deviled Eggs on the playing field, the Easter Bunny’s definitely getting a run for his money—sorry, man, we prefer our eggs to be filled with creamy avocado and bacon-infused yolks, not expired Tootsie rolls.

Avocado Frito Pie Bombs


These insane Avocado Frito Pie Bombs from Amy Erickson (Oh Bite It) are lethal, but in the best possible way—exploding with flavors of baked avocado, chili cheese, and Frito chips, they’re dangerously delicious.

Baked Avocado Bombs Coated In Fritos And Chili Cheese Are The Key To Success

Big Game Avocado Frito Pie Bombs | Foodbeast Kitchen


Posted by Foodbeast on Tuesday, February 2, 2016

You heard it here first—pie bombs are the new pies.

It’s a dark day for pies everywhere because we now have our hands on a formula for insanely delicious AVOCADO FRITO PIE BOMBS. Even more, they make for the perfect Game Day appetizer.

We’ve got Amy Erickson of Oh Bite It to thank for the recipe; she generously coats and bakes fresh avocados with Frito chips and chili cheese to make Bombs that burst with flavor, then adds a sprinkling of cilantro, jalapeno, Mexican crema, and cotija cheese to bring the heat!

You’d think that Bombs so delectable as these would set you back a couple of days at the gym, but guess what? Avocados are full of naturally good fats that are actually good for your body, AND they are cholesterol-free…so take that, Mom!

Learn how to turn this avocado dream into your reality with the instructions below, because Avocado Bombs are the new potato skins.

Avocado Frito Pie Bombs

Serves: 4

2 med/lg. Hass Avocados

2 – 9 oz. bags of Original Fritos

4 – 1″ cubes of sharp cheddar cheese

Mexican Crema or sour cream

cotija cheese


1.  Crush half a bag of the Fritos into crumbs (I used a food processor, but a zipper bag and muscles will work too) place them into a shallow bowl ..SET ASIDE..

2.  Lay out the remaining Fritos, plus some from the unopened bag if needed, evenly onto the sheet pan, creating a generous, bed of Fritos! ..set aside..

3.  Now, evenly cut each avocado in half lengthwise, and remove the pit

4.  Gently coat each avocado half in the crushed fritos and place them onto the sheet pan, nestling them slightly into the bed of Fritos.

5.  Place a 1″ cube of cheddar into each center of the avocados.

6.  And now top the cheese cubes with a generous scoop of the chili.

7.  Top the filled avocados and the bet of fritos evenly with the shredded cheddar.

8.  Bake them at 350 degrees for approx. 15-20 minutes..OR just until the chili and cheese are bubbly and the fritos are slightly golden.

9.  Let them cool for a few minutes, and then top them with some of the Mexican crema, and all the other preferred garnishes.

10.  Serve with a cold Mexican beer!

Deep Fried Frito Pie

I can honestly say I’ve never had one of these, but that’s why I’m now craving the very idea of them! We’re looking at balls of cheese and chili that have been rolled up in corn chips, battered and then deep fried. Dubbed the deep fried frito pies. Pure genius. I almost would want these with an equally humonguous side of ranch dressing. Maybe blue cheese if I was trying to get fancy. Thoughts for dipping sauce? (PicThx TIWYH)
