Homemade Chips & Guac

Surprise! I’m back in Ohio!

I had a big callback that brought me back to the midwest, so I figured I’d make a little stay out of it!

Last night I went over to my brother and sister-in-law’s house. It was so fun. We watched The Bachelor Winter Games AND she helped me customize my FabFitFun box! I’m so stinkin’ excited about it. A quarterly box of over $250 worth of beauty and wellness products for only 39.99? YES. PLEASE. You can get $10 off when you use my code TENOFF at check out too πŸ™‚

Anywho. We had dinner in front of the TV, so I wanted something that was “nushy.” You know? Something that I could enjoy for the entire episode of Ben Higgins goodness. haha


Enter: My homemade chips with gourmet guacamole!

This is what dreams are made of, people!

such a creamy sauce!

Sugar Snap Peas, tossed in Avocado Dressing, over a bed of Roasted Broccoli and crunchy Red Skinned Potato Chips! So delicious and a festival of flavors and textures.

so bright and fresh!

It was almost as outrageous as the drama on TV!

And it’s gluten free, vegan, and Body Ecology Diet friendly!

And did I mention…it’s perfect for Lent?!

Snap Peas and Guacamole Sauce - Superb!

Here’s what you need:Β (Serves 2)

7 organic red skinned potatoes, sliced thin on a mandolin

1 stalk of broccoli, broken into florets, and roasted
1 1/2 cups sugar snap peas, chopped
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
2 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
2 green onions, chopped

Avocado Dressing:
1 avocado, mashed
juice of one lime
1/2 tsp salt
1 garlic clove, grated on a microplane grater/zester

mandoline slicer
good Chef’s knife (here’s the one I use and love)
baking sheets
tin foil (I use nonstick and it’s aΒ game changer)
Microplane grater
Olive oil spritzer

what a plate!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Carefully slice your red potatoes on the mandoline. (Or with a sharp knife). Place them in a single layer on two tin foil-lined, olive-oil sprayed baking sheets. (You’ll do two batches). Spritz them with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and bake for 15 minutes, flipping halfway through. You’ll need to watch them carefully towards the end – when they begin to get brown spots on them, take them out – they’re finished!

such crunchy chips!

Meanwhile, roast your broccoli. Place the florets on a tin foil-lined, olive-oil sprayed baking sheet. Spritz them with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and bake for 15 minutes, flipping halfway through.

gorgeous roasted broccoli!

Also, prep your veggies. After you chop your red onion, soak it in ice water for 10 minutes – this gets rid of that bitter onion-y bite. Drain, and squeeze dry in a paper towel.

mmm mmm mmm!

Finally make the dressing. Combine the dressing ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Mash the avocado with the back of a fork until creamy and smooth. Add enough lime juice so that it is liquidy enough to coat the snap peas. Toss your snap peas, cilantro, and red onion with the dressing.

amazing textures!

To serve, make a bed of chips. On top of that, make a cushion of broccoli, and top with the snappy guacamole! Garnish with green onions and cilantro, and enjoy!

This meal was SO GOOD! The textures of the meal took it over the top! The chips were phenomenal – they were incredibly crunchy! My sister loved them too – there was not a single one left! And combined with the tender-crisp broccoli, and crunchy snap peas slathered in the creamy dressing – it was amazing!

Gluten Free, Vegan, and Body Ecology Diet friendly!

And the flavor was out of control – the bright lime juice, buttery avocado, fresh cilantro and subtle hint of garlic….it. was. so. good!

Now if only I had a gentleman to cook for….


See ya tomorrow!

  1. Well, then, welcome to the State…got here just in time for a small amount of warm weather and some rain. Did you say you were down around Cincinnati? Have you ever been to the Morrow Vineyard? They have an awesome steak dinner…buffet style. The catch is that you have to grill it yourself on some big grills they have set up. We’ve been horse camping down at the state park in Batavia…35 miles of trails. I hope you have a good time visiting your family! That food looks fantastic!

    • Thanks Charlene! I have never been to Morrow Vineyard! I’ll have to check it out! Thanks for the recco! Have fun camping! Hugs and love xox

  2. Nachos are one of my favorites! I don’t love avocado, but I love the thought of veggies on homemade chips! I also intend to use your suggestion to soak the onion. Thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks Kat! Oh yes! Soaking the onion is a game changer for salads and tacos – def worth the extra effort! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs and love xox

  3. It looks soon good- I love avocado and other than guacomole or fresh slices in a salad, my imagination on what to do with them has always ended there. This is perfect for Lenten Friday’s too! Thank you

    • Thanks Joan! Yes! I love avocado and Guac too! So creamy and delicious! πŸ™‚ Hugs and love xox

  4. This looks like a really good dish and treat Carolyn. I love roasted broccoli and homemade potato chips; they just taste better to me. I would have to substitute the snap peas because I’m allergic and even make a side of melted cheese dip as well.

  5. “Body Ecology Friendly”– a well combined meal, for sure πŸ˜‰ Fun to see all the variety we come up with when we share what we love. Take care!

    • thanks Linda! Are you familiar with the BED? I was on it for three months as an anti-candida treatment. Thanks for stopping by! Hugs and love xox

      • Yes, I followed BED for 2 years before going Keto, but one of the things I like about Keto is that it’s pretty effortless to continue to properly combine. All the sugar and starch is out of the picture from the get go. πŸ˜‡

  6. Yummy much! Oh how I’ve missed your blog posts while I was away on my trip! Prepare to see a lot of notifications from me cuz I’ve got a lot of catching up to do! God bless and keep cooking these delish foodies! πŸ˜‡πŸ˜πŸ’–

  7. Not fair! This is torture…or food porn…something evil that requires atonement.

    You’re dealing without someone whose experience of “gourmet” is a banana in his granola. I’m not conditioned for this kind of temptation.

    • hahaha you’re too funny! ooh, a banana and granola. definitely gourmet. you want to really kick it up a knotch? add a sprinkle of cinnamon. Or even….a Tbsp of peanut butter πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ xoxo

  8. It’s fun to have sister-in-law time so I’m glad you got to visit Cincinnati. Your dinner looked extra yummy too. Glad you got to spend quality family time. And I hope you find that special someone soon…

  9. Hi Beautiful! Thank you for this recipe, I am going to prepare this for my daughter this week. She’s vegan and I’m going to surprise her with this dish. I am sure that she is going to love it! I will let you know her response. Thanks again.

    • thank you so much! What a kind thing to do for her. I hope she loves it!! Hugs and love xox
