Cinco de Mayo is coming up quickly, and what better way to celebrate than with delicious food? One of my favorite, fresh things to snack on at a Cinco de Mayo get-together is a good guacamole, but you never know when someone might be picky about their guac ingredients. I decided to serve my guacamole as a mix-your-own bar this year. That way, everyone can mix their snack to their own liking. Easy, peasy right?
I baked up some thick tortilla chips and decided to try out serving my chips and dip in a plastic margarita glass. It turns out, that is a fantastic way to serve chips and guacamole, easy to carry around and easy to eat. I do recommend making these thick tortilla chips if you’re planning to serve this at a Cinco de Mayo party, they don’t break when you scoop up a big dollop of guac. They’re really easy to make, all you need are Small Flour Tortillas, Canola Oil Spray, and Seasoned Salt. Cut the tortillas into triangles and spread them on a cookie sheet, then spray them with a little canola oil and sprinkle them with seasoned salt. Then, bake them for 8-10 minutes on 350.
