Crafting the Perfect Game Day Chips and Guacamole Charcuterie Board

Having guests over for a fun get together like game day and need to whip up some quick snacks for the crew? Create the ultimate Chips and Dip charcuterie board with the star being some irresistible fresh homemade guacamole! It’s like orchestrating a symphony of flavors on a platter.

Begin by establishing which Boos Block cutting board you will use as a cutting surface to prep the ingredients, which will also serve as an empty pallet for crafting your creamy guacamole masterpiece. Our pick is the Boos Block Model RA01 Hard Rock Maple Cutting/Serving Board. This particular natural hardwood cutting board is reversible and has recessed finger grips to assist in maneuvering when you are adding all of your delicious snacks. An 18″ x 12″ x 2-1/4″ thick board is a perfect size that allows enough surface area to slice, dice and prep the vegetables to prepare the guacamole spread. It is also available in 3 larger sizes should you desire even more room to create your masterpiece: 20″ x 15″ (model RA02), 24″ x 18″ (model RA03), and 30″ x 23-1/4″ (model RA06). Note that they are substantially hefty in weight and demand a large presence. The models range from 13lbs to 42lbs. The RA series is also available in a rich cherry wood: 18″ x 12″ (model CHY-RA01), 20″ x 15″ (model CHY-RA02), and 24″ x 18″ (model CHY-RA03).

A delicious guacamole calls for the following ingredients:

  • (3) Ripe Avocados
  • (2 tbs) Lime Juice
  • (1 Large) Jalapeño with seeds removed and diced
  • (1/2) Small red or white onion
  • (1 cup) Diced Tomatoes
  • (2/3 cup) Chopped Fresh Cilantro
  • (1/4 tsp) Ground Cumin
  • Salt to taste
  • Scallions for garnish
  • Package of corn tortillas

Recipe:

Proceed to mash the ripe avocados until you reach your desired texture. Then add the diced jalapeños, onions, tomatoes, and cilantro. Add your lime juice, salt and cumin and continue to mix.

Why stop there? We love to make homemade chips, and we’re sure you will too!

Making chips from corn tortillas is a breeze and yields crispy, delicious results! Start by preheating your oven to 350°F. Take a stack of corn tortillas and using a sharp knife or a pizza cutter, slice them into triangles or strips, depending on your preference. Arrange the tortilla pieces in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, ensuring they’re not overlapping. Lightly brush or spray both sides of the tortilla pieces with oil (vegetable oil or olive oil works well) and sprinkle them with a pinch of salt or your favorite seasoning blend. Pop the baking sheet into the preheated oven and bake for about 10-15 minutes, flipping the chips halfway through, until they’re golden brown and crispy.

Next, assemble an array of crispy tortilla chips, pretzel crisps, pita chips or veggie sticks, arranging them like a colorful mosaic around your guac bowl.

Now, let’s dive into the dips – add variety with bowls of tangy queso, zesty salsa, sour cream, spinach artichoke dip, or spicy corn dip creating a carnival of dips for every taste bud. Arrange them strategically, creating a symphony of colors and textures.

Garnish with fresh lime wedges, scallions, and jalapeño slices for that extra pizzazz.

Serve with a cold beverage of your choice & voilà! Your chips and guacamole dip charcuterie board is now a work of art, ready to delight and dazzle at any gathering!
