Chunky Potato Wedges with Guacamole and Salsa

This is a very healthy snack, perfect as a light lunch or a starter before the barbecue. I always make my own guacamole and salsa although if you prefer you can buy some from the health food store. This is the perfect way to use up potato skins!

Note that you will need to bake the potatoes for almost one hour.
