Googie’s Kitchen presents Spicy Sumac Guacamole

Spicy Sumac Guacamole and Sweet Potato Chips

During the colder months on a Saturday lunch time I like nothing more than cooking myself chips and making a yummy dip. Normally I make sweet potato chips and a hummus. The other day I fancied a change. In recent months I have been experimenting with a spice called ‘Sumac’.

Sumac grows in subtropical temperatures. It can be found in East Asia and Africa. This spice has a light, tart and astringent flavour. It can be used in lots of soups, stews and curries. I felt it would help to add extra flavour to this dip. So when it was combined with other spices in the guacamole it worked well. One I will definitely be making again soon. Below is the video on how to make this delicious dip and recipe for you.
