Clean Eating #41: Super Bowl lower fat Guacamole & Easy Chips & Nachos!

Super Bowl Clean Guacamole & Chips!

Wow.  I've never been able to bring myself to try guacamole before... and I finally did.  Holy beans.  This stuff is YUMMY!!!  Paris and I ate nearly 1/3rd of this just mindlessly munching on it every time we passed the table!  I finally packed it away in the fridge, since I made it for Patrick and the boys anyway, I thought I should save some for them.

  • 3 avocado
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 heads of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp chipotle chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 lime
  • 1 1/2 Roma tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 Cups of frozen peas, cooked *Lower the fat!
  • pepper

Cut the Avocado in half lengthwise and remove the seed.
Make a slice down the middle and just peel off the skin.
Squeeze lime juice in a small bowl.  Use half to coat the avocado.
Using a potato masher, mash up the avocado.

Add cooked peas, remaining lime juice, spices, chopped garlic and cilantro & puree in blender
Add chopped tomato and onion & Refrigerate until serving.

Find some clean corn tortillas
Cut into triangles (I recommend cutting them larger rather than smaller so its less time consuming)
Spray lightly with oil and line a cookie sheet
bake under the broiler for just a moment until they start to brown, flip and toast the other side.  Viola!

Clean Eating Nachos... with LESS mess if you cut them AFTER they're toasted with cheese (for Nachos)
