Ingredients

Guacamole

  • 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

Homemade Chips

  • tortillas corn or flour
  • cooking spray
  • salt

Instructions

Guacamole

  • 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!
