Guacamole with Chipotle Tortilla Chips

Whip up this easy guacamole for your next movie night on the couch!

Cut 8 (6-inch) corn tortillas into 8 wedges each. Place the tortilla wedges on 2 baking sheets coated with cooking spray, in a single layer. Sprinkle with 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. chipotle chile powder, then lightly spray with cooking spray. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.

While the tortillas are cooking/cooling, make the guacamole: peel the husks from 3 tomatillos, then core and finely chop them.

Combine the chopped tomatillos in a bowl with 1/3 cup chopped onion, 1/3 cup chopped plum tomato, 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro, 1 tablespoon fresh-squeezed lime juice, 1/4 tsp. salt, 2 seeded and finely chopped jalapeno peppers, and 1 minced garlic clove.

Peel and seed 2 nicely ripe avocados, then coarsely mash them with a fork. Add to the tomatillo mixture, and stir to combine.

2 tablespoons guacamole and 4 tortilla chips makes a serving of 60 calories.

corn tortillas $0.99
tomatillos $1.12
plum tomato $0.64
lime $0.59
avocados $3.00
jalapeno peppers $0.50
