Guacamole with Crunchier Tortilla Chips
Corn tortillas can be turned into more a flavourful and crunchy accompaniment to guacamole with this method. A quick appetizer for a family gathering.
1 clove garlic, mashed with a pinch of Kosher salt
3 large ripe avocados, coarsely mashed
juice of 1-2 limes
1/4 c. cilantro, minced
Combine all ingredients, adding salt, pepper and lime juice to taste. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve, placing an avocado pit in the centre of the bowl to reduce browning.
For tortilla chips, cut fresh corn tortillas into quarters and fry in hot oil until golden and crisp. With slotted spoon, remove to paper towels to drain and salt lightly.
