Ingredients

For the guasacaca:

  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1/4 onion
  • 1 handful fresh parsley
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper

For the baked plantain chips:

  • 3 green plantains

Instructions

Guasacaca:

  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. We prefer to serve the guasacaca immediately, but you can also serve it cold.
  3. Store the guasacaca in the fridge in a sealed container for up to 3 days.

Baked plantain chips:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF or 200ºC and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Peel the plantains and thinly slice them.
  3. Place them onto the baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes for one side and 5 minutes more for the other side.
  4. Store the plantain chips in a sealed container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Notes

  • Feel free to use garlic powder instead of the fresh garlic, lemon juice instead of the vinegar or other fresh herbs or veggies you like.
  • Oil or any other healthy fat can be used instead of the tahini.
