Guacamole with Chipotle Tortilla Chips

Chipotle chile powder gives the crunchy chips a smoky kick that pairs well with the buttery guacamole. Use ground cumin or regular chili powder in its place, if you prefer. Prepare the chips up to a day ahead, and store in a zip-top plastic bag.

Ingredients

  • Chips:
  • 8 (6-inch) corn tortillas
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chile powder (such as McCormick)
  • Guacamole:
  • 3 tomatillos

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 ripe peeled avocados, seeded and coarsely mashed
  • 2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and finely chopped

Preheat oven to 375°.

To prepare chips, cut each tortilla into 8 wedges; arrange tortilla wedges in a single layer on 2 baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle wedges with 1/2 teaspoon salt and chile powder; lightly coat wedges with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 12 minutes or until wedges are crisp and lightly browned. Cool 10 minutes.
