Megan-simple recipe: Guacamole + baked chips

Guestpost by HiLLjO on Jun 6th

Ever since the cooking challenge, people have been sending in recipes that are so easy, even a cooking newb like me can handle it. -Megan


  • 2 Medium-size Ripe Avocadoes
  • 1/2 red onion (yes, chopping onion AGAIN)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 lime


  • Tortillas (any kind)
  • Olive oil or Sunflower Oil
  • Salt (optional)

Set oven to 400 degrees F. Rip as many tortillas as you like into triangles and lightly brush/smear oil on pieces with fingers. Spread in one even layer on a baking sheet and cook for about 10 minutes, or until brown and crispy. If you like, salt them immediately after baking.

Carefully cut the avocado in half around the pit. Pull the halves open and set the pit aside. Repeat for the other avocado. With a tablespoon, scoop out the green fruit into a bowl, mash with a fork.

Chop up your red onion until you have the size chunks you prefer, add to the avocado with the salt and pepper. Next, roll the lime around on the counter under the weight of your palm, cut in half and squeeze the juice from one half into the avocado and mix the ingredients until a green, chunky paste emerges.

Eat with your chips and be amazed at its simple-deliciousness.
