Hip Chip Dip: Mind-Boggling Guacamole

Hip Chip Dip: Mind-Boggling Guacamole. Okay, who put steroids in the guac?! Why is it so addictive? How am I able to shovel so much of this into my mouth?

Rustic, right? There is beauty in scraps. You just KNOW that mango went in my mouth after photographs.

You don’t even need chips to enjoy this satisfying hippie dippie dip:) Make some oil-free baked tortilla crispies for the best balanced party platter! Protein, fiber, and fat keep you feeling full, but sweetness, spiciness, and umami-ness will keep you coming back for more. Nutritional yeast is a wonderful source of complete protein and B Vitamins, both of which are crucial in vegan diets. Did you know avocado is as nutritionally close to breast milk as a plant food can get? It’s a two-for-one for Vitamin D and K! Oh yeah, and the fat helps with absorption.

The Hip Chip Dip is great for lunches! It keeps in the fridge for 2 days. 

Hip Chip Dip Recipe (My Mind-Boggling Guac!)

Makes 1 1/3 cups- double or triple for a hangry mob.

  • 1 large avocado (180 grams)
  • 1/4 nutritional yeast (20 grams)
  • 1/2 cup salsa of choice* (120 grams)
  • 1/2 cup beans of choice, drained (130 grams)
  • 1/2 packed teaspoon each: cumin, chili powder, chipotle powder, and garlic powder

Caribbean hip chip dip:

  • 1 batch of the above guacamole recipe
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mango OR pineapple (I prefer mango, but pineapple is more Jamaican.)
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon allspice, or jerk seasoning (no, jerk spice is not seasoning for a-holes, that’s called salt.)
  1. Mash avocado with a fork until only unbeatable chunks remain. Surrender to them and add an ungodly amount of nutritional yeast, followed by the salsa and spices.
  2. To all ingredients except the beans: Smash, smush, stab, stir, and season until sensational and smooth.
  3. Fold in beans (as if they were marshmallows in a jello salad.) Oh yeah, this is where you add the scallions and fruit. Y’know, if you’re a tropical hippie.

You can use black beans, pinto beans, or edamame! The latter is my favorite high-protein choice.

Avocado-holic? You could be worse;) Here are some ways to feed that addiction:

ALFRESTO! (Avocado Alfredo Pesto)

Lean Clean Key Lime Pie

BLAST Bowl (breadcrumbs, lettuce, avocado, sundried tomatoes, and tempeh)

Guests go CRAZY for this- flower child or not. Make a big bowl and don’t count on leftovers…
