Pomegranate-Avocado Salsa with Spiced Chips

This jewel-toned dip makes the most of seasonal fruit. If you can't find clementines, substitute tangerines. Bake the chips up to a day ahead, and store at room temperature in a zip-top plastic bag. You can also prepare the salsa, minus the avocado mixture, a day ahead. Stir in the mixture shortly before serving to keep the avocado green.
