Oh Yes!!

A few weeks back one of the ladies in my military group at church brought some homemade tortilla chips and homemade guacamole for us to snack on. I'm pretty positive I consumed most of them on my own.. while hoarding the bowl :] I asked how she made the chips and she said it is the easiest thing ever. And she was right!!

Heat some oil (I prefer extra virgin olive oil for stuff like this, vegetable and canola never step foot in our house) over medium heat. Cut up corn tortillas into 3rds then drop into oil and cook for a few seconds on each side. Flipping with tongs. Don't fill the pan up with tortillas, leave some room so they don't stick. You also do not want to text while making these or you will burn them.. you know it's just something I heard ;]

A little crank from the pink salt to top them off, then dip them into this goodness...

Some homemade guacamole. Mine is pretty plain compared to others, but that's how I like it. A little bit of pink salt, and some granulated onion powder. Simple yet amazing.

I know right now freezing things in ice cube trays is all the rage. Well I have no extra ice cube trays so I went old school and froze mine in a small container. We had 4 avocado's that we didn't get to and I knew we wouldn't be able to eat them before they went bad, so I made up 3 (1 was trash ready) small containers of mashed avocado (I like small chunks) and lemon juice. I decided at the last minute to make these chips so I put the guac container under warm water for a bit, then I stirred it up and put it in the microwave for 30 seconds two times stirring in between. It was good to go at that point, but too warm for my liking so I put it in the fridge until the chips were made. Perfecto!

Was this a healthy meal that I should have been eating? No (the guacamole was though!)
Was this an amazingly mouth watering good snack? YES!
Does my stomach hurt after eating said goodness? Of course

This isn't something I will be making often, but man is it an awesome treat every once in awhile.

I couldn't be MORE impressed with the look of those chips. They seriously must be the best ever, I should try it!
