Nothing is better than having your average take out meal and not feeling one bit guilty about it. I love cheesy chips and heavy wholesome meals, unfortunately I can’t have that everyday so Its nice to have substitutes that won’t leave you feeling sluggish. I did make some crackers to go along with this dish, however it was a bit of an experiment and needs to be perfected, so I will keep you updated on that one! But for now enjoy the chilli, sweet potato thins, avocado spread and my new favourite dip that goes with everything – SWEET CASHEW CHEESE (drool)…..

*Serve with fresh organic corn on the cob sprinkled in paprika and drizzle with some coconut oil.
