With the Academy Awards airing this Sunday, we know you'll need your snacks ready-to-eat from the start of red carpet coverage (what will they wear?!) until the closing commentary (will Alfonso Cuarón really take home the gold for Gravity?).
While you watch, we've got a super simple entertaining tip for you: break away from the traditional soda and popcorn combo! Instead, we're obsessed with Wholly Guacamole's 7 Layers of Greatness dip. That's right, we're telling you to jazz up your evening by having you and your guests munch on a DIY appetizer that will be as much fun to make (and eat) as seeing who will trip on their words (or their heels) during this year's Oscars. The best part? It's served in individual cups, so you can easily keep the double-dippers away! Perfecto!

It's sprinkled on chicken, mixed into rice, massaged into pernil. It's the ubiquitous Latin spice: adobo. If you didn't grow up in a household where the adobo flowed freely: adobo is an all-purpose seasoning and though recipes vary, it's usually made with salt, pepper, garlic, cumin, and a few other dried spices. You can make your own or find the bottled stuff in nearly every grocery store across America. And when we say all-purpose, we mean it. You'll be hard pressed to find a Latin dinner without adobo.
