This easy guacamole dip is a quick avocado recipe that even kids will love! Serve with baked tortilla chips sprinkled with Himalayan salt and cracked pepper.
Tonight for this Mitten Movie Night, instead of a food and beer pairing I’m doing a super easy snack that kids and parents will both enjoy while watching their favorite family show or movie.
Since this recipe is mainly for the kids, I kept this appetizer simple to four basic ingredients and made it without cilantro. While traditional guacamole recipes include cilantro and other ingredients like tomatoes and onions, I added them to separate bowls so the adults can add these ingredients to their own bowls.
Then, to pay homage to tonight’s television selection, we oven-baked flour tortilla ‘dog bones’ for chips with a simple salt and pepper seasoning. These chips came out crispy and held up to all the dunking.
Kids TV shows that the whole family will love
Today is the season finale of one of our favorite family shows to watch, Turner & Hooch on Disney+. This show has something for everyone: laughter, romance, special family bonds, and a whodunit all centered around the big and messy main character, Hooch.
I really think that Disney did a wonderful job of updating this classic, that I remember watching as a kid, into a modern-day series.
For this simple avocado dip recipe-
- Two ripe avocados
- 1-2 cloves of garlic depending on how much your family likes it, mine LOVE it
- Juice of 1 lime
- Flour tortillas
- Spray olive oil, and seasonings like cracked pepper and pink Himalayian salt
How to make this easy guacamole dip
Using a pestle and mortar, add two heads of garlic. Use the mortar to mash the garlic heads until they make a slight paste. Add pink Himalayan salt to the garlic to soften the garlic and bring out the flavor.
If you do not have a pestle and mortar, check out this video of how to make it with just a knife.
Add the avocado halves to the garlic and mash using the mortar.
Finally, squeeze the juice of a lime and stir everything together.
How to make flour tortilla chips in the oven
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Stack 3 flour tortillas on top of each other.
Press down with the dog bone cookie cutter, then place the chips onto a 9×13 baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat until you have around 20 cut-out dog bones.
