In celebration of Cinco de Mayo, I decided to post this guacamole recipe along with flour tortilla chips. This is the snack my family serves at every gathering. Traditionally guacamole is served with corn tortilla chips, but oh my word it taste like heaven with flour. Who doesn’t love a flour tortilla stuffed with avocado? This is the perfect way for every one to enjoy this yummy combo. Believe me it’s well worth the short time it takes to make the chips. You’ll be lovestruck and so will your guests!
2 1/2 – tablespoons minced jalapeno
5 – ripe Avocados from Mexico (cut in half)
1/4 – cup torn cilantro leaves
1 – teaspoon salt
1/2 – teaspoon black pepper
3/4 – cup chopped tomatoes
2/3 – cup chopped onion
1/2 – teaspoon chili flakes
1 – lime (juiced) (optional)
1 – cup vegetable oil
5 – flour tortillas (cut into 1 inch width long strips)
First start with the jalapenos, cut in half, discard stem and deseed. Mince.
Then chop tomato and onion and set to the side.
In a big mixing bowl add minced jalapeno, and avocado halves mash with a masher. Then add salt and black pepper and mix in with spoon.
