Fingers reaching in to grab a crispy rice paper chip from a plate

Introducing the perfect appetizer for game day festivities (and beyond): super crispy rice paper chips perfect for dipping in a bowl (get it?) of creamy avocado dip. It’s a party in a recipe!

Just 5 ingredients and 10 minutes required for this easy, crowd-pleasing snack. Let us show you how we chip ‘n’ dip!

Rice paper wrappers, salt, cayenne, avocado, lime, and avocado oil

These crispy rice paper chips and avocado dip are inspired by a similar dish at a Japanese-Mexican fusion restaurant called Manta. While they draw inspiration from two distinct cuisines, they marry together beautifully!

Let’s start with the dip! Creamy avocados, tangy lime, and a pinch of salt combine in a food processor for a SUPER simple dip everyone will enjoy (okay, maybe not avocado haters, but do they even exist!?). Vegan and nut-free friends will all be included at this party.

Then it’s on to the chips! They start with cutting rice paper wrappers (the kind commonly used in Vietnamese spring rolls) into quarters. Then we fry them up in a shallow layer of avocado oil, where they puff up like magic before your eyes!

Once they puff up, take ’em out of the skillet and dust with salt for flavor and an optional sprinkle of cayenne for a little heat.

All that’s left is to DIP and enjoy!

Does it keep? Best when fresh



  • 1 ½ medium-large ripe avocados (1 ½ large avocados yield ~270 g diced)
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp sea salt


  • 6 (~8 inch each) rice paper wrappers
  • Avocado oil
  • 2 pinches sea salt
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper (optional)


  • To a food processor, add the avocado, lime juice, and salt (starting with the lesser amount). Process on high for about 2 minutes until creamy and smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. Taste and adjust as needed, adding more salt for overall flavor or lime juice for brightness. Place whipped avocado in a serving bowl and refrigerate while you prepare the chips.
  • Meanwhile, using scissors, cut each rice paper sheet into quarters. Set aside.
  • Heat a 1/8-inch layer of avocado oil in a large rimmed skillet over medium heat. Test that the oil is hot by dipping a corner of a rice paper sheet into the oil — it should bubble and puff up immediately.
  • Once the oil is hot, add 1-2 rice paper pieces to the skillet at a time. Cook for a few seconds, until fully puffed. Transfer to a paper towel-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining rice paper sheets. Once you are finished cooking, dust with salt and cayenne pepper (optional). Place the chips in a large bowl. Serve the chips with your whipped avocado dip. Enjoy!
  • Best when fresh as the dip will discolor and the chips will lose their crispness within 24 hours.

    These were fabulous. Super easy to make, but looked and tasted like they took a lot of time and effort. I made a batch with bbq rub sprinkled on top and it was also delicious. Thank you for this brilliant recipe.

  2. heid says

    This was the easiest and most fun! I made them per the recipe and they came out perfect! And made the avocado dip too! sooooo good!

  3. Janet says

    Just made this rice paper, avocado recipe. So easy and so
    Delicious. We love garlic, I would probably add some to the
    Dip next time. Great snack!!

    Made these for a super bowl snack and they were super tasty. Didn’t have avocado oil so used olive oil and they turned out great. We had them with guac and the 5 ingredient vegan queso (which was also amazing). The most time consuming part was probably cutting the rice papers (which only took a few minutes) as they puffed up as soon as they hit the pan. Would definitely make again :)

    Nice title for the article. Ugh.
    I’ve never met a guacamole or avocado dip that was not vegan. Thanks for stating the obvious.

    These look great. I remember many years ago before I went WFPB enjoying shrimp chips that cooked up the same way. Now we’re oil free and I’m wondering how these might work in an air fryer.

      Hello, the rice paper that are a little thicker with the sesame seeds work well in the microwave. You can pop them like popcorn. Just watch it closely and stop it has soon has the full sheet has fluff :)

      Hi Jori, we don’t think these would work in the air fryer! Let us know if you try it though.
