Confession: I love snacks. Sweet, salty, savory, sour — I love them in all shapes and sizes.
So you know, that I’ve got a separate stomach for guacamole.
There is always room for more guac. Always.
And sometimes — more like, most times — I want to make that guacamole into a meal!
Enter: My homemade chips with gourmet guacamole!
This is what dreams are made of, people!
Sugar Snap Peas, tossed in Avocado Guacamole Dressing, over a bed of Roasted Broccoli and crunchy Red Skinned Potato Chips! So delicious and a festival of flavors and textures.
It was outrageously delicious!
And it’s gluten free, vegan, and Body Ecology Diet friendly!
Here’s what you need: (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
1 avocado, mashed
juice of one lime
1/2 tsp salt
1 garlic clove, grated on a microplane grater/zester
good Chef’s knife (here’s the one I use and love)
tin foil (I use nonstick and it’s a game changer)
Olive oil spritzer
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!
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.
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.
Finally make the guacamole 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.
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 friend 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!
And the flavor was out of control – the bright lime juice, buttery avocado, fresh cilantro and subtle hint of garlic….it. was. so. good!
See ya tomorrow!

Love that. I use 2 avocados, 1 large hard tomato, 1 small onion, 1 teaspoon ground cummin, 1/2 teaspoon paprika ABD a lime squished. Then smoosh it all up. Not to thin but a little thick. I learned that recipe in a Mexican Restaurant near SoHo over 20 years ago😀😀

Have you thought about time back home?
still thinking haha
I thought about that and had the thought that if you go home it is not defeat it is choosing to be refreshed
i love that, thank you 🙂 what a beautiful way to look at it!!!
I just thought that anyone who has toughed out what you have might feel guilty about leaving. But really it would be taking care of yourself and letting Jesus bless you through family and friends 🙂
that’s a great point
Thanks Ab! Wait until you see next week’s recipe 🙂 hehehehhe Hugs and love xox

Thank you so much! haha i am all for dipping and scooping! 🙂 absolutely! stay well! Hugs and love xox
Yes please!!! Avocados are my absolute favorite! A friend just made me avocado toast or maybe it’s called guacamole toast…either way, delicious!!!!
Oh yum!!! Too bad I’m so far away lol ✌️ looks and sounds delicious!
That looks delish!! Now I know what we’re doing for dinner tomorrow nite!
All your recipes are healthy and looks delicious! I also really wanted to try making it, but I haven’t bought an oven yet 😓
Hi Roselyn, If you have a stove top / hob maybe you could try by frying the chips up. If you steamed thin slices they would soften without falling apart; dry them on paper towel / kitchen roll to take out excess moisture. Then let ’em hit that hot pan. Worth a try maybe. My Mum used to deep fry in a light oil – then let the paper towel soak up the excess fat.
Oohh, there’s an alternative for oven.. okay this is noted, thank you a lot 🤗
WOW! That looks so good! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Thank B3 for another super recipe. Potatoes make my arthritis flare up and much as I LOVE home-made chips – well anything – I dare not. I tried using celeriac last night. It’s an ugly old brute of a veg (think Jabba the Hutt) but the delicate taste of celery is mmmmm…. Probably cook up some more tonight to have with fajitas, salsa.

Hope all well with you and your friends in NYC – think of you sitting outside sharing a glass or two. Maz X
Have you ever thought about doing your own little cooking show? I’m sure it would do well! 🤗😊
Ok I’ll be right over to help eat that. Dang! 😋
That looks so good.
🤩🤩🤩🤩 thank you!
I tried this and it was delicious! Now I made some mistakes. It didn’t turn out as lovely as I would have liked, it was very tasty and surprisingly filling. What I did wrong was…. I didn’t have one of those slicers, so I used my food processor slicer and my potatoes came out too thin and stuck to the pan and my potatoes took longer to cook for some reason. It makes a difference. The potatoes with the crunchy texture makes a surprising difference.
Oh good!!! Thanks Jolie for sharing your success! I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Gotcha – yeah a mandolins makes paper thin slices. But Hooray for workin’ it on the fly!!! Happy cooking! 🙂 Hugs and love xox
