When I was at the farmer’s market last week, I stumbled upon a grocery reseller who had tons of avocados for an amazingly low price. No…definitely not grown in Minnesota, but a great deal, none the less. I bought a bag and brought them home…dreaming of raw corn chips and guacamole. Well, it just so happens, that I also found some huge bunches of kale that were grown here, just picked and also at a price I couldn’t refuse. I love kale chips. I love corn chips. It didn’t take much to figure out that there were some corn kale chips in my future!
Combined with a fast to assemble, chunky guacamole, this is a perfect dish for snacking, entertaining, or even a meal! The kale gives the corn chips an additional nutritional punch. Coarse chopping the avocado and tossing it together with the tomato, onion, a little lime juice and some salt and pepper, the guacamole comes together fast.
