Layered Guacamole With Surprising Chips

This makes a great snack while enjoying warm summer days on the deck with a cold brew….be it iced tea or a chilled wine. Easy and not expensive to make.


  • 4 ripe avocados
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 1 tbsp. jalapeno pepper
  • 2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced, divided
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 plum tomato, diced
  • 2 tbsp. minced fresh coriander

Pit and peel the avocados, cut in neat cubes. In a bowl, gently toss together the avocados, onion, jalapeno pepper, lime juice and half of the garlic, oil, salt and pepper.

Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

In a separate bowl, toss the diced tomato with the remaining garlic, oil, salt and pepper. Sprinkle the tomato over the guacamole but do not mix in.


Baked Chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brush 4-5 small tortilla with vegetable oil, cut each one in 12 wedges. Bake on a parchment lined baking sheet for about 10 minutes.

This will make 60 chips….better find more drinks…..
