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!



Halve, deseed and scoop out the flesh of the avos, then mash with a fork

Add all the other guacamole ingredients and mix together. Adjust the spice to suit you

Next up, heat a 3cm depth of coconut oil in a deep, heavy-based pan over a medium to high heat

Peel your potatoes and slice with a mandolin to around 3mm thick rounds

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

Scoop out with a slotted spoon onto paper towel and season with sea salt straight away

Drain each batch on fresh paper towel

Eat and enjoy!
