A few simple ingredients that I can have on hand to quickly whip up a fresh bowl of guac works perfectly for me. Creamy avocados mixed together with vibrant cilantro (I even grew the cilantro I used!), bright lemon juice, zesty red onion, and a pinch of salt or two.

Scale

Ingredients

For the Guac:

  • 4 avocados, skins removed and pitted
  • 1/2 of a red onion, finely diced
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Salt to taste

For the Chips:

  • 6 tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Cooking spray

Instructions

For the Guac:

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the avocados, red onion, lemon juice and cilantro. Use a fork to gently mash it all together until desired consistency is achieved. You can leave it more chunky or mix and mash it together until more smooth. Season to taste with salt.

For the Chips:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, combine the seasoned salt and chipotle powder. Cut the tortillas into 6-8 equal triangles depending on the size of your tortillas.
  2. Spread them out evenly on a couple baking sheets, spray the tops with cooking spray, sprinkle evenly with half of the seasoning blend and bake for 6-8 minutes. Flip all the triangle pieces over and repeat the same process on the bottom side. Spraying them with cooking spray, evenly sprinkling them with the seasoning blend and baking for another 6 minutes or so. Allow to cool completely prior to storing.
