Pineapple Chips n’ Dip (Guacamole x2)

Pineapple Chips N' Dip - www.ThePrimalDesire.com A great way to snack, pineapple chips and dip!

I have eaten a LOT of pineapple this last week.   I snack while I cut it, because it’s delicious juicy pineapple obviously.  And I have cut up 5 in the last few days.  I filled my dehydrator twice and managed to burn 2 batches in the oven.  I made beautiful brown pineapple pucks, twice.  The third time was a charm.

I would imagine that by now you have already picked out your pineapple, and have familiarized yourself with the process, if not check out how-to choose, cut, and plant a pineapple.  We have included directions so you can plant the pineapple top and grow a palm!  I always forget about it and end up with a pot of dirt, some rotten pineapple and a couple brown leaves sticking out, but Raj has grown many of these plants.  Maybe you have had some success?  Tell us the story in the comments below!  Any tips or tricks we’ve missed?  Please leave those for us as well!

**note from Raj about the benefits of pineapple juice:  “I’ve had more than a couple discussions about this, and read a few things talking about the effect eating pineapple has on the taste of your sexual juices.  Most people I’ve talked to agree that this results in a sweeter taste in both men and women.  My scientific mind of course wonders about dosage, timing, and duration, but there is little available information out there.  Gonna have to do some research.”

Now let’s make some chips and dip!

Recipe type: Pineapple Chips
Ingredients
  • 2 pineapples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • ⅛ cup lemon juice
  • sprinkle of salt
Instructions
  1. Put sliced pineapple in a bowl, add lemon juice and toss until coated.
  2. Lay out on a rack or dehydrator tray.
  3. Sprinkle lightly with salt.
  4. How long it takes to make the chips is dependent on how thick the fruit is sliced (and the outside humidity: rainy days take longer to dehydrate).
  5. My dehydrator with no heat setting took 16 hours, the oven on low (not even to the numbers just until the light went on, likely around 110 F took 7 hours).
  6. Bake until they are mostly crisp, once they cool they will crisp up a little more.

    Looks really good! Will have to try the flavoured guacamole recipes, too. We make guac almost everyday when we are in Mexico, and adding masala would certainly be a twist to the usual flavours.
    Keep up the good work, Raj and Holley!

      Hey Adam,

      Holley and I both enjoy playing with uncommon combinations. We plan on sharing both our successes and failures- but thankfully they’ve all been wins! “Failures” are just works in progress, am I right? This is how things like deep-fried dill pickles, or bacon – wrapped onion rings come to be.

      Please come back and rate the recipe once you’ve tried it. Maybe even post photos on one of our social media pages?

      Cheers,

      Raj
