Goat Cheese Guacamole with Pita Chips

serves 4

recipe adapted from Absolutely Avocados

  • 3 Hass avocados
  • 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
  • 1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes in oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (to taste)
  • 5 slices pita bread, each cut into 8 triangles
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt & freshly ground pepper

Cut each avocado in half lengthwise. Remove the pit from the avocado and discard. Remove the avocado from the skin, and place the avocado flesh in a bowl.

Add the goat cheese, chives, sun-dried tomatoes, lemon juice, salt & pepper. Mash with a fork until half smooth and creamy. Taste and add more salt & pepper if desired.

Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly brush each side of pita with olive oil and sprinkle salt & pepper over triangles. Scatter pita onto a baking sheet and bake for 5-7 minutes, until nicely browned and crisp.

Serve fresh pita chips alongside guacamole. Enjoy!
