Homemade Guacamole and Tortilla Chips



Avocados are something that I love. I pretty much eat them every day; just mashed with some salt and pepper on a spelt-flaxseed cracker. Today I used them again in one of my favourite recipes: homemade guacamole. 
Now, guac and nacho chips are not the healthiest combo, but I made it a bit healthier by making homemade tortilla chips. I had never tried this before but they are truly amazing!

What do you need?
Two ripe avocados
One tomato
1/4 red onion
One clove of garlic
1/2 lime
Some coriander leaves
Eight tortillas (I used whole wheat ones)
Sunflower oil (or olive oil, use whatever you fancy)
Sea salt
Chili powder
Cayenne pepper

First, preheat your oven to 180 °C. Then start with the tortilla chips. I cut the tortillas like I would cut a round birthday cake. In the end you should have eight chips per tortilla. Lay them next to each other on a baking tray lined with baking paper. They do not all fit, so just wait until the first batch of chips is out of the oven and start doing the same thing until you are out of tortilla triangles.
Put some sunflower oil in a cup, take a pastry brush and coat the tortillas with a thin layer of oil; front and back! Then sprinkle on some sea salt and cayenne pepper and put them in the oven for about eight minutes. They will come out all crispy and golden brown!
When your homemade tortilla chips are done, it's time for the guacamole!
Peel the skin of the avocados, remove the seeds and put them in a bowl. Mash them together with a fork until you get a smooth, green mixture. Cut your tomato, red onion, garlic and coriander in fine pieces and add those to the avocado mash. Squish out the juice of the lime and put it in the bowl. Now it's also time to add some sea salt and chili powder. Mix it all together and your homemade guacamole is done! 
Serve it with the chips and you have the best snack ever! I personally think the tortilla chips taste better than the ones you buy in store and they are so much healthier! 

I hope you make these too, because they are SO good!
