instant guacamole with kale chips
When I was in the US last year, I developed a bit of an addiction to commercial kale chips from Whole Foods. So crunchy and yum. If you don’t have access to commercial kale chips they’re super easy to make at home. Or just use rice crackers instead.
large handful kale chips (recipe over here)
1. Mash avocado flesh with a fork, using the skin as a little bowl. Season with salt, pepper and a little lime juice.
2. Serve ‘guacamole’ with the kale chips for dipping.

The guacamole is really best when fresh as it can brown over time.
variations for fun
can’t find kale chips? – use whatever healthy dipping chips you can get your hands on or try making your own.
hot! – a little fresh chilli can be lovely.
more substantial – serve as a side to cooked chicken or mash in some canned cannellini beans with the avocado – you’ll need to use a small bowl instead of the avocado skin.
no lime juice – use lemon instead.
