(Air) Fried Guacamole

April 10, 2019

Is it possible to one-up an already over-the-top recipe for fried guacamole? Challenge accepted. We wanted to craft a fried guacamole recipe that was more palatable than a thickly breaded ball of molten hot, slightly melty mashed avocado, something more ingenious than oil-slicked, crisp-on-the-outside, mushy-on-the-inside avocado fries, and something that didn’t require skewers, sticks or other kabob accessories. Behold: Air Fried Guacamole!

Our Air Fried Guacamole marries the classic chips and guac combo into a handheld showstopper appetizer—no double dipping or browning-in-the-bowl guacamole concerns necessary. To keep things Primal/paleo, gluten- and grain-free, we used cassava flour and grain-free tortilla chips, and instead of deep frying, we used an AirFryer.
