Welcome to Kate’s Kitchen with Teens! Have you ever made homemade tortilla chips? They are AMAZING! Add homemade salsa and guacamole to the mix and you will be the hit of the party.
Terrific Tortilla Chips:
12, 6-inch white corn tortillas
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
½ teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 350° F. Brush both sides of the tortillas with oil. Stack them up and cut the pile into 6 pie wedges. Spread the wedges evenly on two cookie sheets. Sprinkle salt evenly over the wedges. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
5 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 vidalia onion, chopped fine
1 cup cilantro, chopped fine
1-2 jalapeno peppers, seeds and membranes removed, finely diced (*wear gloves to protect your hands and eyes!), optional
½ lime, juiced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Combine the tomatoes, onion, cilantro and jalapenos in a bowl. Add the lime juice and salt. Mix thoroughly. We can combine this with chips and guacamole?
The Best Guacamole on the Planet
2 ripe Haas avocados
½ plum tomato, seeded and chopped
2 Tablespoons Vidalia sweet onion, diced
½-1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
Cut the avocado in half and remove the seed. Quarter the avocado and peel the skin. Place into a bowl and mash with a fork. Squeeze the juice of the lime onto avocado. Add chopped tomato, salt, Tabasco and onion and mix thoroughly. Serve immediately.
