Homemade Chips and Guacamole

My favorite part about eating out is most definitely the appetizers. I always fill up on them before I even get my meal, forcing me to have to get a box and take my main course home. Either that or I end up stuffing my face with the both of them anyway and gaining five pounds in one sitting. Whatever, no big deal. I am a die-hard chips and guacamole fan though and have come up with the perfect recipe for homemade guac!

I also had no idea how easy tortilla chips were to make, so I whipped some of those up along with it. I think they actually taste better than the store bought ones. You’ll have to let me know what you think!

Tortilla Chips

Ingredients:

  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • salt
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farhenheit.
  2. With a pastry brush, lightly brush one side of all the tortillas.
  3. Sprinkle salt to taste. (Or if you want to shake things up a bit, use this seasoning. If I could go back, I would’ve bought ten bottles of it when we lived in Texas. Love it!)
  4. Use a pizza cutter and cut each tortilla into six equal parts.
  5. Place tortilla slices on a cookie sheet, oil side up, and bake for 10-13 minutes, or until crisp.

Guacamole

Ingredients:
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 2 Tbsp. salsa
  • 1-1/3 Tbsp taco seasoning
  • 1/3 tsp. salt, or to taste. (I’m a salt lover, so you may not need to add salt at all. Just try it and add according to what you see fit.)
Directions:
  1. Pit and scoop avocados into a small bowl – mash with a fork until well blended.
  2. Add salsa, taco seasoning, and salt – mix well.
  3. Serve with your freshly made chips!
Enjoy!

    Yum! Homemade guacamole is one of our favourites! It’s so simple to prepare yourself! I love the tortilla toasts you’ve made to go with it. They look delicious and are probably a much healthier option than corn chips.
