For guacamole: Peel, pit and mash avocado. Add salt and mash a little more. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.

For tortilla chips: Pour oil into a large frying pan to a depth of 1/2 inch. Heat oil to 350 to 375 degrees. In small batches, fry tortilla wedges until lightly golden. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

Serves 2 to 4

Chef's tip: Chef Christy says that using a potato masher is a great way to mash ripe avocados to the perfect consistency for guacamole.
