Field Goal Guacamole and Touchdown Tortilla Chips
For the Guacamole
2 roma tomatoes
1/2 red onion
1 clove garlic (finely chopped)
1 bunch cilantro (roughly chopped)
1 lime (juiced)
1 jalapeño (seeded and finely chopped)
- Seed the tomatoes and dice them. Dice the onion into slightly smaller pieces than the tomato. Set aside.
- Remove the pits and mash the avocados. Add the lime juice to help break down the avocado and make it smooth.
- Mix tomatoes, onion, garlic, cilantro, and jalapeño into the avocado mash. Add salt, pepper, and cumin to taste.
- Place in an airtight container and refrigerate for at least an hour to allow the flavors to marry.
- Serve in a chilled bowl and garnish with lime wedges and cilantro leaves.
For the Chips
Premade corn tortillas
Oil for frying (vegetable oil recommended)
1 Tbsp. Seasoned salt
1/2 tsp Cumin
¼ tsp Cayenne Pepper
- Fill a pot or skillet with high sides about halfway with oil. Turn the burner to medium heat and wait until the oil reaches a temperature of 350°F.
- While the oil is heating, cut the tortillas into triangles and mix the salt and spices together.
- Fry the chips until golden brown, make sure not too add too many chips at a time. This could drop the temperature of the oil and make for soggy chips.
- Place chips onto a paper towel-lined tray to drain, and sprinkle on spice mixture while the chips are still hot.
- Serve alongside guacamole.
