Gomer's Guacamole and Tortilla Chips
Serving Size : 6 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Appetizers
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon lard or shortening
1/2 cup warm water -- (1/2 to 3/4) (110°)
Salt to taste
2 medium avocados -- seeded, peeled, and cut up
1/2 small onion -- cut up
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 clove garlic -- minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
In a mixing bowl stir together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Cut in
the lard until the mixture resembles cornmeal. Add 1/2 cup of water and stir
until the dough can be gathered into a ball. If needed, add more water, 1
tablespoon at a time. Let the dough rest for 15 minutes. Divide the dough
into 12 portions and shape into balls. Turn onto a lightly floured board and
roll each ball into a 7-inch round. Trim uneven edges to make round
tortillas. Stack the rounds and cut the stack into 6 wedges.
In a deep skillet heat 1/2 inch of oil. Fry the wedges a few at a time for
about 45 seconds, or until they are crisp and lightly browned. Drain well on
paper toweling. Sprinkle the chips lightly with salt.
In a blender container combine the remaining ingredients. Cover and blend
until well combined. Serve with Tortilla Chips.
