His and Hers Guacamole: Mario Lopez and His Wife Share Their Go-To Recipes

Extra host Mario Lopez and his wife, Courtney, are gearing up for America's biggest game day by sharing their favorite guacamole recipes, using Avocados From Mexico. Lucky for us, the recipes are unusual riffs on the classic avocado mash. Mario's is spicy and smooth with the addition of serrano peppers and olive oil. And Courtney prefers a milder guac with crumbled feta. We caught up with the pair, who explained how they came up with these unique takes: "We make guacamole all the time and just get creative. Avocados are a staple in our house, and we're always hosting parties so we're always making guac . . . ," Mario said. And the guac isn't just intended for dip! Courtney says one recipe always on rotation in her household is slow-cooked pulled pork or chicken. Use the meat to fill sandwiches or tacos and the guacamole as the spread.

Though their recipes are different, Mario and Courtney can agree on one thing: nothing pairs better with guacamole than tequila. Mario recommends Casa Mexico. Courtney also recommends whipping up a big batch of red sangria for a crowd.
