Creamy Avocado Dip and Baked Taco Potato Chips

My favorite color is blue the color of seafoam. Then again, I like green the color of seafoam, too.
I suppose, then, my favorite color is seafoam and I should stop trying to crunch it into a crayon color because it’s perfect, just the way it is.

Seafoam is a color we used to have around until we up & moved to a new house 3 years ago and I got a wild hair and bought a red couch. So now the house is red and brown and it makes me feel much too grown up. Like I should have a plate full of hard candy on the front room coffee table, and welcome visitors with a wrinkly, twinkly eye.
*
That’s why I like seafoam. It doesn’t make anyone feel old. It’s bright and light and brilliant.
*
Since a front room redesign isn’t in the budget this year, I decided to cook in seafoam today, whisking together it’s gentle coolor in a bowl of avocado dip. Beautiful, isn’t it? Almost too pretty to eat.

Almost.

    I made these for my lazy Sunday night yesterday and they were great! Next time though I'll follow your directions and make sure the avocados are very ripe, I just couldn't wait that long though! Yum!

    Avocados are commercially valuable and are cultivated in tropical and Mediterranean climates throughout the world. They have a green-skinned, fleshy body that may be pear-shaped, egg-shaped, or spherical. Commercially, it ripens after harvesting. Trees are partially self-pollinating and often are propagated through grafting to maintain a predictable quality and quantity of the fruit.;

    Some supermarkets sell pre-ripened avocados which have been treated with synthetic ethylene to hasten ripening. In some cases avocados can be left on the tree for several months, which is an advantage to commercial growers who seek the greatest return for their crop; but if the fruit remains unpicked for too long it falls to the ground.”*..-
