Guacamole and Homemade Tortilla Chips
- 3 ripe avocado peeled and pitted
- 1 lime juiced
- 1 jalapeno seeded, and finely diced
- 1/4 onion red, finely diced
- 1 handful cilantro finely chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
- tortillas corn or flour
- cooking spray
- In a medium bowl, mash avocado with the back of a fork until desired consistency is reached.
- Gently mix in lime juice, jalapeno, red onion, and cilantro. Salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve immediately with tortilla chips. If serving at a later time, transfer to a container and lay plastic wrap over guacamole, and gently press down to remove any air (as air will cause avocado to turn brown).
Homemade Tortilla Chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray both sides of each tortilla with cooking spray.
- Stack tortillas and cut into 6 equal slices. Lay tortilla pieces on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly browned and crisp. Watch closely, as they can burn quickly!
