Spicy Avocado Fries

The idea of these just about made me do a happy dance. I adore avocado and this was a really cool new way try them. I also made a dipping sauce which was just sriracha and mayo to taste with a squeeze f fresh lime. It pairs really nicely. This makes a really tasty and unique appetizer for your next party. I also found that it makes a tasty topping on turkey burgers as well when I experimented later. They could also pair well with a southwestern style omelet I believe…hmmm may have to try :)

We just had these at s restaurant. The server said the crucial step is freezing the avacados prior to cooking.

This was great! We made them earlier in the week and both loved them.
Instead of frying them we baked them but I think they came out just as well :)
Quite enjoyable.

Thank you! I have not tried it yet (I need to get one of those little screens to keep them crisp) but I am sure they would be delicious. :)

It’s always avocado fry time :) PS It makes a great burger or chicken sandwich topping.
