Cumin chips:
6 pitas
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons cumin
1 tablespoon salt
2 ripe avocados
1/2 small red onion, minced (about 1/4 cup)
1 tablespoon minced seeded jalapeño
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 cup finely chopped tomato
Salt and pepper


1. Make chips: Preheat oven to 375ºF. Split each pita in half. Brush both sides with oil and sprinkle with cumin and salt. Cut each half into 6 wedges and spread in a single layer on 2 ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes, turning pitas over and swapping position of pans halfway through, until pitas are crisp and golden.

2. Make guacamole: In a glass bowl, mash avocado with a fork until chunky. Mix in onion, jalapeño, cilantro, lime juice and tomato; season with salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap pressed directly onto guacamole and chill for 20 minutes. Serve with cumin chips.
