I went grocery shopping a couple of weeks ago, and was looking at all the majestical plants and poking around in that area when I turned around and came face to face with the most inviting display of avocados I had ever seen in my life. These babies were practically begging me to take them home and show them a good time. Trust me when I say, a good time was had by all involved…
Sh!t got real….
1 Pkg Corn Tortillas (not flour);
3-4 limes; juiced
2 Tbsp Fresh Cilantro; minced
1/2 Red Onion; minced
Mind you that this is just a basic recipe, you can add whatever you want to your guac based on what you like… if you want heat, add some hot peppers. You dont like cilantro… Who needs it… Not you! You like grapes… I hear people add these too! We are in Merica’ and we do what we want! (that last one was a joke, please dont take it to heart)
Stack your tortillas up like Legos and cut them into wedges like you would a pizza, set aside.
Mince your onion…
Then do the same to your cilantro.
Cut your avocados in half and discard the pits.
I find the easiest way to scoop and mash avocados is once you remove the pit, score a grid pattern with a knife like a hashtag “#” then scoop it out with a spoon and mash. Makes it a bit more manageable.
Combine avocados, onion, cilantro, and lime juice mashing to your desired consistency. (Also disregard my gross brown bits I had to remove, apparently one was a little over ripe in some areas)
Heat oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Once you can drop a tortilla in and it sizzles (but doesn’t smoke) then feel free to drop more in working in batches.
Fry 2-3 minutes each side until they start to turn a slight gold in color. Also adjust heat accordingly, you dont want them to cook up too fast because I find they dont quite crisp up in the center.
Sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt and enjoy!
