Paleo Guacamole with Sweet Potato Chips

Guacamole with Sweet Potato Chips

Julia Child once said “a party without guacamole is just a meeting”. Oh wait, what? She said that about cake? Are you sure? Not the good green stuff? My bad. Well, sorry Julz, I hate to say it, but maybe that’s why you were a little on the heavy side? Less cake, more gauc!



  • 2 large ripe avocados
  • Juice of 1-2 limes
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 6 chopped tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Small handful fresh coriander, chopped
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • Coconut oil (enough for shallow frying)


  1. Halve, deseed and scoop out the flesh of the avos, then mash with a fork
  2. Add all the other guacamole ingredients and mix together. Adjust the spice to suit you
  3. Next up, heat a 3cm depth of coconut oil in a deep, heavy-based pan over a medium to high heat
  4. Peel your potatoes and slice with a mandolin to around 3mm thick rounds
  5. Shallow fry the sweet potato in batches (a small handful each time) for a minute or 2 each batch. You will see them turning to light brown
  6. Scoop out with a slotted spoon onto paper towel and season with sea salt straight away
  7. Drain each batch on fresh paper towel
  8. Eat and enjoy!
