This chia seed and tomato guacamole with chilli crisps is the perfect snack to accompany netflix bingeing sessions, friends round to watch the football or a side dish for date night.
I adore easy to make snacks that are full of the good fats. I’m obsessed with guacamole and this dish fits the bill. Whilst the avocados make it high calorie not all calories are created equal. Avocado is packed with the type of fats that are good for the body and this dish is a great way to add them to your diet and frankly who doesn’t love guacamole.
This dish can be stored, covered in your fridge for up to 2 days so can be made in advance. The tortilla crisps can be stored separately in an airtight container for up to a week. Avocados are an excellent source of B5. Its enzymes help our bodies to use fats, carbs and proteins for energy and helps to speed up metabolic processes in the body.
This is a versatile dish that can be adapted to suit your needs. I’ve added red onion and tomatoes but you can mix it up with so many other ingredients – it would be equally good with chopped celery and radishes for a bit more bite. If you don’t like heat just omit the chilli.
All the ingredients in this dish are readily available at your local supermarket, the only special tool that helps save time is a food processor but it isn’t necessary as you can just chop the ingredients by hand.
