Sweet Potato Chips and Guac

The other night I was hungry while making dinner.  I was making chilli.  It still needed to simmer an hour. I wasn't going to make it that long!
What I did have ready to eat was an avocado (my love of avocados is HUGE!) and sweet potatoes.  I thought that this could be a winning combination.

And how!
 
Using my sister's blog post on making microwave potato chips, I did the same thing with sweet potatoes.  I found they needed to cook a bit longer than what she recommends.  I don't know if this is due to different microwave powers or due to sweet potato vs. regular potato (potato, patahto, right?!)
 
Anyway, this was a nice quick solution to my rumbly tummy!

As for the guacamole I really phoned this one it.  We're talking mash some avocado, add some lemon juice and salt and pepper (did I mention I was hungry?)  I think we all know that guacamole is really just an "adult" way to eat mass amounts of avocado "legitimately" right?!  If you have a favorite recipe for guac, go for it.  :)
