Hey friends, how is your week starting out? Pretty decent over here. We had a great Memorial day. I had planned on an early morning yoga class, and was up with plenty of time to make it. But, my little sidekicks were up early too, and the weather was beautiful out, so we decided that a family hike was in order. It was the right choice, it was so nice being outside and exploring with the babes.
Afterwards we went for a quick swim, and had lunch. After which, I headed out for my massage and facial. It was amazing, I felt so refreshed and relaxed after. I came home to this feast, courtesy of the hubs.
I had not had steak in quite a while (I don’t eat much beef), and this really hit the spot!
I am sticking with the Whole 30 (on Day 10!) and must admit I was feeling pretty envious watching pizza and other goodies being consumed all weekend. Fortunately I had these little babies to help easy the pain.
Guacamole potato skins! These were so tasty, and really feel like party food, which was exactly what I needed with all the delicious food around that I could not partake in. They are vegan, and Whole 30 compliant. Also, they come together super fast and you may already have all the ingredients on hand. This would be a perfect appetizer for a summer gathering.
Guacamole Potato Skins
Makes 4 potato skins (Using smaller potatoes)
- 2 potatoes (I used red potatoes)
- 2 small or one large avocado
- 1 tablespoon salsa
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- squeeze of lime, about 1/2-1 teaspoon
- salt and pepper to taste
- oil for brushing
Directions: Cook potatoes (I microwaved for 3 minutes, you could also bake) and allow to cool. Once cool, scoop out filling leaving place skins on a sheet pan.
Lightly brush with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and stick in the oven on a low broil. Cook for 5-7 minutes, until beginning to brown.
While the potato skins are cooking, make guacamole. I mashed 2 small avocados with salsa, lime juice, garlic powder, salt and pepper. You could also use prepared guacamole, or your favorite guac recipe.
Once the potato skins are starting to brown, remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before filling with guacamole. Enjoy!
*Note: If you are not following a Whole 30 or vegan diet, I think a little cotija cheese or maybe even a little bacon would be delicious sprinkled on top.
