Plantain chips and Guacamole

Plantain chips and Guacamole is nothing revolutionary about this recipe in terms of technique—the plantains are a typical Colombian ingredients and a basic version of my all time favorite dip: the guacamole.
But somehow when you put these two ingredients together something magical happens.

Let’s try to make the magic happens


Plantains (green)
olive oil
lime juice

Let’s make Plantain chips

I advise you to get the greenest plantain you can find. Yellow ones are always sweeter and softer so they are not the best for making chips,

Peal the plantains and cut it in thin slices. Put it into a bowl and season it with salt pepper and olive oil. Then pre-heat a non sticky pan and place them equally distanced one from the other.
Cook for 3 minutes on high heat then flip them

Meanwhile make the best guacamole of your life.

Wash your onion very carefully. Slice them in very tiny cubes, the smaller the better. For a medium-big (European) avocado I use half onion Open your ripe avocado in half, scoop out with a spoon the good stuff and place it in a bowl. Cut the lime in half and squeeze the juice into the bowl. It will help you to smash the avocado.

It’s time to get messy. Grab spoon and fork and smash the avocado. You should obtain a soft texture with some chunks. I only do my guacamole in this way. I don’t like to use any blander, indeed. the chopped onion and mix them together. On the cutting board, you can cut a jalapeño and add it to the bowl. Add salt and black pepper to taste. Mix well and garnish it with some coriander leaves, onion slices, and lime wedges. And it’s ready to test.
