You’ve seen it on menus, and in all different shapes and sizes on social media — the phenomenon of avocado toast, is real. So real. And the craze over it has spread like wildfire for a reason! It’s delicious, healthy, and not to mention extremely easy to make.
I’m always looking for new twists to throw at my avocado toast game, and on a recent trip to Telluride, CO, we checked out this adorable local grocer called Ghost Town (must try it if you visit!). There we ordered their avocado toast and little did I know I’d be leaving obsessed with this menu item. Behold, toast with the following toppings: chèvre, hard boils eggs, avocado, and Chili Crunch. One of the tastiest toasts I’ve ever consumed! Now one of these ingredients you may not recognize, and unless you’re a huge foodie, (props to you) you’re probably thinking, “What in the world is Chili Crunch? Please, tell me!” Okay… I’ll tell you. Chili Crunch is thee secret ingredient and it’s by far something you should be adding into your refrigerator immediately. It’s sold exclusively only in a number of states (not in Texas very unfortunately), and is a little over $10 per jar. Obvi I don’t know all of the ingredients (they’ll never give away that recipe!) but it’s so good, and worth your while to investigate.
Since I’ve been back I’ve tried recreating the recipe, and will say what I’ve whipped up ain’t too shabby. Like I mentioned, they don’t sell Chili Crunch in Austin, not even in the state of Texas, so I made my friend from San Francisco bring me out some when she came to visit. Yes, I made her check a bag so she could bring me Chili Crunch… it’s that good. She even got herself a jar and the obsession on her end is mutual.
What I make on a regular basis is just slightly different, but after I inhale it I always look at the clean plate with heart eyes and sing “You’re Just What I Needed!”
Here’s the recipe:
- Gluten-free whole wheat bread
- 1-2 hard boiled eggs
- Chili Crunch
- A pinch of sea salt
Cook time is 5-10 minutes. So easy… so scrumptious… so worth it!
