Roasted bell pepper guacamole, salsa and Kubbus chips

Posted by

A weekend night with dip and chips sounds fantastic, right? It gets even better when everything is homemade and healthy. Our Friday movie night got perfect with some roasted bell pepper guacamole, cherry tomatoes, salsa, and chips.

We all are a fan of chunky guacamole, and I stick to the classic. However, I wanted to take it a notch up in terms of flavors. Adding oven-roasted bell pepper and garlic did the trick. Along with the pepper, you can throw in the (pita or Arabic) bread to get crispy chips. All done under 30 minutes. A friend of mine taught me to make these chips. They are simple and need olive oil, salt, and some dried herbs if you like. 

As little fella watches animation movies, we get excited when there is a new kids movie. I look forward to this and enjoy some quality time with each other at home. And good food makes it better. What do you think?
