Creamy Bacon Guacamole Dip

Give guacamole a new twist ... by changing it up into Creamy Bacon Guacamole Dip!  And servin' it up with JoséOlé® snacks for dipping.  Thank you so much to JoséOlé #BigGameAppetites for sponsoring this post.



It's almost game time for the BIG game!  I shared last week {in my Cheesy Hot Broccoli Dip post} that due to my hubby's, shall we say, ... lack of like ... for watching football, I don't watch much football during the regular season.  Much to my dismay.  Because I love  to watch football.

But the play-offs and Super Bowl?  Completely different story!  These  I watch.

And guess what?  The hubby usually watches, too!  Why? ... Because I make great food to accompany the watching, of course.  Like this Creamy Bacon Guacamole Dip with hearty JoséOlé® snacks for dipping.

The Super Bowl is just ten days away!  I'll be watching and pulling for the Patriots {sorry, Seahawks fans}.  While my 'hometown' team of the Carolina Panthers weren't fortunate enough to make it to the big game this year, I'm happy that my 'second' team was!  Growing up in Vermont, the New England Patriots were 'our' team for my family.  I remained a Patriots fan once moving to Charlotte, North Carolina ... but when the Carolina Panthers started up in Charlotte several years after I moved there, I just had to support my new hometown team.  And so ... the Panthers became my new 'first' team.

But I've always kept the Patriots in a special place in my football heart!

Now, what's kinda funny about me being excited to watch the Super Bowl is ...

Diced Prune & Peanut Butter Apple Snacks

Like many of us, I have resolved to make healthier choices this year.  Especially when it comes to my snacking.

Because if I'm completely honest with myself {which I have to say ... quite often, I'm not}, making good-for-me healthy snacking choices is not my strong point.  When that afternoon snack craving hits, I don't always reach for the wisest option.

Fortunately, the great taste and convenience of Sunsweet® Amaz!n Diced Prunes are helping me make healthier choices at snack time!  'Cause I need all the help I can get.
