It's Taco Tuesday and Cinco de Mayo. Although we're currently having tacos, I don't have a taco recipe for you today. I have the next best thing...guacamole and chips. Fresh guac and baked tortilla chips to be exact. My favorite drinking duo.

I like to make my own tortilla chips to control the carbs and fats (macros). Most chips are fried in oil or lard. You can still do that with this recipe if you prefer to just bypass the baking part and fry small batches of tortillas.

These are the ingredients needed;

10-15 corn tortillas

1-2 tbs EVOO

4 small avocados (halved & seeded)

1 diced serrano or jalapeño

1 roma tomato

1/2 diced white onion

1 small lime (juiced)

1 tbs chopped cilantro (like a handful - you won't be using the entire bunch)

Sea Salt or Kosher salt to taste


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

1. Cut tortillas into 1/4 slices (strips work too).

2. Place in a bowl and mix in EVOO. Aim for an even coat of oil.

3. Place a single layer of tortillas on a foil lined baking sheet. You might need to use two baking sheets or bake one batch at at time.

4. Salt tortillas & place in the oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees. I find 20 minutes to be ideal for this crispy chip lover.

5. Salt test. Salt again if desired.

If you like lime flavored chips, squeeze some lime, salt, toss and one.

Serve in a lined dish of your choice and done! Easy.


Mash the 4 avocados in a medium bowl. Use a fork or a masher to do this. Squeeze half of the lime juice, salt and mix. Add onion, tomato, serranos, cilantro and mix again. Taste test for salt. I usually add a little more salt with the remaining lime juice, mix and done!

You can also chill in the fridge for 15-30 minutes but it's totally optional. My favorite Mexican restaurant makes their guac just like this table side and we eat it right then and there at room temperature.

What I love about guac is that you can make it as you wish. Use red onions or green onions, omit the peppers or double the peppers, it's really up to you.

Enjoy and Feliz Cinco de Mayo!
