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.
