My obsession for avocado and guacamole is never ending. It's summer, which inevitably calls for guacamole and chips, but i didn't want just any old chips, I wanted to make my own! And I'm glad I did!

These freshly made sweet potato chips bring this recipe together. They were crunchy, sweet, and the perfect pairing with my homemade spicy guacamole. It just blows my mind how we've all been consuming store brand chips all these years, and have forgotten how to make our own at home! They are so simple, and easy to make, and so much better for you! Nothing processed in this recipe!

Mexican flavors and dishes are my favorite. I just love the spices, beans and rice, and of course avocado! This is perfect for lunch, or even as a snack! I think my guacamole will be accompanying me during the next FIFA World Cup game! Care to join? ;)
