What could be more enjoyable in summer than a dish of freshness? And one of the way to do that is with a Guacamole! and add to that fresh dip, i also made crispy potato chips!
Avocado. Pick 2 good avocados and btw i’ll be sharing with you simple tips of how to keep your leftover guacamole / avocado so it won’t turns brown later on this blog.
Red Onion and squeezed lime. So, usually people will squeeze a the lime to the guacamole. But here we’re doing it a little bit different. Minced all the red onion and marinate it in 1 squeezed lime (or lemon). This way, your guacamole won’t be too “watery” but still has that acidic freshness.
Herbs. I use parsley.
Spice. For a bit of spice, i add red pepper and chili. You can also use jalapeno.
- Mince up coupld of red onions, put it in a smaller bowl and squeeze 1 lime to it. Let it sit and marinate there.
- Cut all the other ingredients start from pepper, tomatoes (leave the seeds out so it won’t get watery), chili and parsley.
- Prep the avocado, cut it in half and gouge it out with a spoon. Continue with smashing it with a fork in a bowl. If you wish the texture to be more chunky then smash it just a bit, if you wish it to be more creamy then smash it all up.
- Then add all the other ingredients to the avocado bowl
- Lastly, take the red onions with spoon (drain the lime juice) and add in to the bowl, give it all a good mix
- And add the lime juice until you’ve met the taste you want
- Add seasoning when it’s needed. I personally didn’t add anything more as it’s so fresh and good already
Potato Chips :
- It’s so simple with only 1 way to do this and only one ingredients which is the potato itself
- Peel the potato skin, wash it clean
- Then use the same peeler to peel the meat as much as you can get, wash it all clean again and drain all the water
- Heat coconut oil in a pan
- And fry them in single layer. If they stock together while you’re frying, use the spatula to kind of separate them
- Fry until it turns yellow (don’t wait until it’s get too brown or else it will taste bitter)
- I don’t add any seasoning because trust me, it’s tasty already without anything added
- But if you like some seasoning, add a pinch of salt and pepper, garlic powder or chicken powder will be great
