Home-baked Chips and Guacamole

So for my first post I thought I'd start with something simple and let you know what I had for dinner tonight. All in all it was a low effort dinner, chips and dips. Potato chips may not be the most healthy option however they're my favourite and a great accompaniment to an evening of College work (which I am currently sat avoiding by typing this post). 


Baked Fries and Guacamole


Home-baked chips:

  1. Cut two large potatoes into sticks about 1/2cm thick and boil for 2-3 minutes. 
  2. Drain the water off the potatoes and add a knob of butter, cajun spice mix (mine was shop bought, not made this time), salt and pepper to the pan with the potatoes and toss till well coated. 
  3. Pop them out onto an oven tray and bake on 190C for approx 25 minutes or until golden brown (tossing every 10 minutes). 
  4. When they are done sprinkle liberally with salt and serve.

Guacamole:

  1. Put in a food processor: an avocado, half a little red chilli, a garlic clove, a dash of lemon juice, a dash of tequila and a pinch of salt and pepper. (Adjust depending on your tastes.)
  2. Blitz, then dish into a bowl and serve. 
  3. If you aren't going to serve immediately pop the avocado pip in the bowl, it will stop the avocado going brown, I don't know how, it just will.

My fancy rum and coke.
I also served this with spicy yoghurt (which you can make at home by adding a tsp of a hot sauce of your choice to two tbsp of yoghurt) and a nice cold glass of Coke Cola with some fresh lime (and I spiced mine up with a bit of the old Captain Morgans).


This should all serve two people with generous helpings of chips. It will serve 3-4 with cajun spaced chicken breast on the side if you fancy that.

  6. This NFL Flag for Washington Redskins is constructed of polyester, measures 3x5 feet, and has two metal grommets for attaching to our 6' aluminum flagpoles or any of our tailgate pole systems. The perimeter of our NFL Flag for Washington Redskins is double stitched and the team logos are screen printed into the flag so they won't peel. Because of its large size, these flags are great to hang on any wall in your game room, sports room, garage.
