our neighbors and good friends, jennifer & elise, have decided that one night a week we would cook for each other. this week was my turn, next week is their turn. i decided to do a cute mexican night. the food was delish!
i used lesie's guacamole. which is so so amazing. i also used leslie's homemade tortilla chips. im pretty much in love with her blog at the moment.
2 ripe avocados
1/4 onion, finely minced
1/2 large ripe tomato, diced into small pieces
a handful of cilantro, chopped
the juice of half a lime
a pinch of salt
Place the meat of the avocados in a medium bowl and roughly mash with a fork.
Add in the onion, tomato, cilantro, lime and salt. Mix together.
HOMEMADE TORTILLA CHIPS:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the tortilla in strips or pie shapes (whichever you prefer) Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray and lay the tortilla strips down on it. Spray the tops with cooking spray too and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 5-10 minutes or until starting to turn golden. Eat warm.
for the adorable taco bowls, i found this cute idea on annie's blog.
place a warmed, lightly oiled tortilla in between the cups of an overturned muffin tin. Bake at 425˚ F for 8-10 minutes. fill it with taco stuff after! :)
and i just used fresh shredded cheese, lettuce, onion, and tomato!
it was super fun and pretty cute!
