Recipe: Chips And (De-Carbed) Dip
Posted on February 15 2023
What is your chosen or preferred herbal "medicine”? With more and more states jumping on board the legalization bandwagon, cannabis is preferred by many. There is a vast array of methods through which to experience the benefits of cannabis – one of those being the inclusion of it in an assortment of food and drink recipes.
Here, you'll find information on cannabis and how to decarboxylate it. Then, a delicious chip and de-carbed dip snack will be detailed for you to try out.
Before you can make de-carbed cannabis infused dip, you have to know a little bit about decarboxylation.
How to Decarboxylate Your Cannabis
What is the point of decarboxylation? It is done to activate the marijuana cannabinoids and THC. The infusion of decarboxylated cannabis is necessary for uncooked edibles. If you put cannabis into food items that will be cooked or baked, activation occurs at that time.
You can decarboxylate your cannabis in your oven, or with a decarboxylation kit.
Here's how to do it at home without a kit:
- To 250°F, preheat your oven. (Remember that, while you're doing this, your home will smell like weed, so be forewarned. Quite strongly, in fact.)
- Take a glass baking dish or baking sheet and line it with parchment paper. Why? After baking is complete, this makes collection and packaging much easier.
- Choose your cannabis. You might want to save your less manicured, loose, fluffy buds for this.
- Into small pieces, rip the buds. Though it's not necessary, you may choose to grind yours.
- For roughly 25 to 30 minutes, you will "bake" your cannabis in the oven at 250°F. Go 45 minutes at 230° to preserve more terpenes. In order to trap terpenes and cannabinoids, some people like to cover their pan with either an upside-down baking sheet or foil.
- Take your tray out of the oven when time is up and let everything cool down. Your cannabis should now be light brown rather than the green color it started at.
- In a mason jar or some other jar with a tight-fitting lid, store your cannabis. As long as it's airtight, it should be fine.
If, however, you have a decarboxylation kit, simply follow the instructions on the kit.
Now, let's look at how to make the dip.
De-Carbed Guacamole Dip and Chips
Whatever chips you choose are pretty much up to you. Pick something that goes well with guacamole. For example, rather than Lays potato chips, you may choose Tostitos – but it's a personal choice.
Here's what you'll need for a single serving:
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon de-carbed, ground cannabis
- 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro (finely chopped)
- 2 tablespoons jalapeno (minced)
- 1/3 cup red onion (diced)
- 1/2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
- 3 cups ripe avocados (pitted, peeled, and diced)
Here's what to do:
- In a large mixing bowl, add the lime juice and avocado. With a fork or potato masher, mash the contents thoroughly.
- All of the remaining ingredients can now be added. Don't forget the cannabis! To combine it all, stir everything well.
- In an airtight container, place the guacamole and refrigerate for one hour.
- Grab your chips and you're ready to go!
