This recipe is a great alternative to serving potato chips.  It is certainly more nutritious.  Potatoes are a good source of B6, potassium, vitamin C, full of dietary fiber and are a classic comfort food.


1 package small red potatoes

1 tablespoon oil

1 clove garlic crushed

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon chili powder

¾ cup guacamole

1/3 cup salsa

1 cup chopped cilantro

4 scallions chopped

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Wash the potatoes, drain and pat dry.

Place the oil, crushed garlic, chili powder and salt in a large mixing bowl and mix.  Add the potatoes and toss to coat.

Place the potatoes in a single layer on a parchment paper lined roasting pan and roast until done (about 30 minutes). Take a spoon and smash each potato.  Place under the broiler for just a few minutes to get the outside crispy.

Transfer potatoes to a serving dish.  Top each smashed potato with a little salt, chopped cilantro (saving some to sprinkle on top), guacamole and salsa.  Sprinkle each potato with chopped scallions and cilantro.  Yummmmm…
