Baked Avocado Fries With Jalapeno Sauce Recipe – A Healthy And Delicious Snack

In just about 20 minutes total, you can be snacking on these amazingly healthy alternatives to fried potatoes, and the recipe includes a great jalapeno dipping sauce that’s out of this world delicious. Make these as an appetizer the next time you throw a dinner party and I promise people are going to be talking about your meal for weeks.

You’ll need avocados of course, and it’s probably best if they aren’t too ripe – which also means mushy. The stronger they are, the better they will turn out, so choose avocados that are a bit firm, but still ripe enough to eat. Since you’re baking them as opposed to frying, they are going to be much healthier than fast food fries. And, since they’re made from avocados as opposed to potatoes, they’re generally healthier. Avocados contain healthy fats and so many wonderful healthy properties – you just can’t go wrong when you choose avocado.

Two avocados makes a serving for two people, so if you are planning to serve more than that you can just adjust the recipe. If you double everything, they will come out as they’re supposed to – just remember to double the sauce as well to make sure that you have enough of that to go around.

After pitting the avocado, you can use a spoon to easily remove the shell.
