We begin our 3rd week of Blogging Marathon# 30 today and my theme for this week is 'Summer Special' dishes for Kid's Delight event being hosted by lovely Chef Mireille @ Gourmet Global. Valli @ Spicing Your Life is the brain behind Kid's Delight eventHomemade Tortilla Chips with Creamy Avocado Dip We are currently experiencing a heat wave in our neck of woods and it has been might hot outside. Kids and I are staying inside and only get out if it is absolutely necessary. I guess that's the joy of being a stay at home mom. It has been a challenge feeding a picky eater who's home for summer vacation and he says he's hungry ALL the time. So I've been looking for some quick and healthy snacks to feed my little one.
Homemade Tortilla Chips with Creamy Avocado Dip I subscribed to Sarah Carey's daily recipe emails and every day I receive her recipe video in my mailbox. 2 weeks ago, she posted a quick and easy Avocado dip recipe and since I had all the ingredients on hand, I made it right away for my son. I also baked the tortilla chips. Homemade Tortilla Chips with Creamy Avocado Dip I was surprised that my son really loved this combo and I'm happy that I have a healthy snack added to my repertoire to make for him.  Ingredients: (Serves 2-3) For the Tortilla Chips (Recipe from here) 6" Corn Tortillas - 6 Oil - 1tbsp or Vegetable Spray Salt - to taste
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Pile the tortillas and cut them into desired size pieces. Spray them lightly with cooking spray or brush them with the oil. Sprinkle with salt.
  • Bake them for 12-15 minutes or until golden and crispy. Rotate the pan in the middle, so the chips bake evenly.
  • Remove and enjoy with the dip of choice.
