Crock of Guac

Day 3 of my summer slimmin' plan, and I'm already starting to gag at the thought of another good-for-you bite. I want things that are so bad for you, that just thinking of them makes you gain weight. As a diversion for my dulled and weary taste buds, I mixed up a batch of oh-so- garlicky guacamole and baked a batch of no-cheating tortilla "chips". Not as satisfying as a plate of greasy spoon cheese fries, but it'll have to do.

Garlicky Guacamole:
chop top off a head of garlic so that cloves are exposed. Drizzle olive oil over garlic head, wrap in foil paper. Place in a 450F oven. Roast for 30-45 mins. Mash 2-3 ripe avocados, add roasted garlic cloves (squeeze em out), and juice of one lime. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated

No Cheating Tortilla "Chips":
Spray flour tortillas with cooking spray sprinkle taco seasoning mix evenly over tortillas. With a pizza cutter cut tortillas into bite sized wedges. Place on baking tray and bake at 450F until "chops" are golden brown and crunchy.
