NPH Guatemala
Recipe: Guacamole & Tortilla Chips

Easy to prepare and well-loved in Guatemala.

Time: 30 mins Serves: 4



  • 3 avocados, peeled and pits removed
  • 1.5 Tbsp white onion, finely minced
  • 1 tsp dired oregano
  • 1 fresh lime
  • ½ tsp sea salt


  • 1 cup oil (olive, peanut, canola, or vegetable)
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • Sea salt


  1. Mash avocados with a fork until almost smooth. Stir in oregano, onion, and juice from lime. Add sea salt to taste.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Lay tortillas in single layer on baking sheet. Dry out the tortillas in the oven for 5 minutes. Cut each tortillas into six wedges.
  3. Pour 1/4 inches of oil into medium skillet. Heat on medium heat; test by placing in a small piece of tortilla. When the tortilla sizzles the oil is ready, if it browns, it is too hot.
  4. Place a paper towel onto a large plate and have several more paper towels ready. Place a single layer of tortilla wedges into oil. Use tongs to distribute and cover both sides with oil. Fry for about two minutes, until chips begin to brown and firm.
  5. Use the tongs to transfer chips to plate. Sprinkle with salt and let cool before enjoying.
