Ingredients2 lb. russet potatoes, cleaned and cut in small wedges 1/4 cup Extra virgin olive oil 2 tsp. garlic powder, divided 1 1/2 tsp. seasoned salt, divided 4 ripe, Fresh California Avocados, peeled, seeded and coarsely mashed 1 1/2 Tbsp. lime or lemon juice
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick foil if desired.
- In a large bowl combine potatoes, olive oil and half each of the garlic powder and seasoned salt. Toss to coat potatoes evenly with oil and seasoning.
- Place potatoes on the baking sheet and bake for about 25 to 30 minutes, or until potatoes are crisp on the outside and tender on the inside when pierced by a fork. Place on a heat-safe platter.
- While potatoes are baking make the guacamole dip by combining the avocado, lime or lemon juice and remaining seasoning. Place in a serving bowl and serve with the potato wedges.
Serving Suggestion: Try as a side dish instead of French Fries.
Guacamole is best made as close to serving as possible. For short-term storage, seal in an airtight container with a piece of plastic wrap against the surface of the guacamole.
*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados
