Homemade Healthy Chips + Guacamole
Considering it’s been football-watching season at my house for what seems like FOREVER, I’ve been eating a lot of game-day snacks. Specifically — chips & guacamole.
As much as I love salty, store-bought chips and a bowl of hearty guac, it’s not worth the calories [I save them for chocolate, duh]. So, I started to make my own version that even my unhealthy-dude friends now appreciate. Here’s how to give it a go this week when you’re craving a snack …
BAKED TORTILLA CHIPS | 1 pkg 6-inch corn tortillas | Canola Oil | Salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. | Cut the tortillas into sixths, creating mini-triangles.
Spread chips on a baking sheet | Brush each side with oil | Sprinkle with salt | Bake for 10 minutes | Flip chips over and bake for another 10 minutes [or until chips are golden + crisp] | Let cool + serve!
Note: thinner tortillas bake faster!
FRESH GUACAMOLE | 4 avocados | 1 large tomato, chopped | 1/3 c. small red onion, diced | 1/4 garlic clove, mashed | 1/2 jalapeño, finely diced | 1 tbsp cilantro, chopped | 2 tbsp lime juice | salt
Mash avocado in a large bowl | Add tomato, onion, garlic, jalapeño, cilantro + fresh lime
Stir all ingredients together | Season with additional salt + lime to taste | Serve + EAT!!!
