Jalapeno Lime Bean Dip with Fat Free Potato Chips


Did you know you can make fat free potato chips?
They are very good also.

I didn’t know until I ran across one of my favorite little gadgets from Pampered Chef a couple years back.  It is a microwave potato chip maker and it looks like this.


It comes with a stack of two disks where you lay your very thin sliced potato seasoned to preferences. ….but no oil. No spray…..nothing.

Potatoes, salt, and microwaved air.

I can zap one tray in 5 minutes on high. Two trays, stacked, takes 10 minutes rotating the trays after 5.
Of course it depends on your microwave wattage, so if you look onto one you have to experiment.

After I bought mine my sis liked it and found another brand somewhere. Paid like half price of what I did mine, wouldn’t you know.

Anyway on with the dip.


Jalapeno Lime White Bean Dip

2 1/2 cups white beans, drained and rinsed
Juice of one lime
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
3 cloves fresh garlic
2 tablespoons jarred jalapeños, drained
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon cumin
Pinch of sea salt

Process in a food processor until smooth. Serve with chips or vegetables for dipping. Keep refrigerated.

      Thanks marie the chip maker is pretty cool if someone isn’t trying to get away from microwave. I have seen so many that are even going back to wood stoves let alone microwaves..ha..I don’t think I can go that far myself.

    Sounds and looks so yummy. We are one of those ones who have got rid of our microwave, lol – yup, gone back to the cast-iron range, but it also makes amazing chips, they look a bit like these! I am really keen to try your dip tho’. Thanks for following my blog, I love to garden and cook too. 🙂 https://gardentokitchenwithsuz.wordpress.com/
