Ingredients

  • 2 large avocados * peeled, pitted, cut into 8 slices each
  • ¼ cup all purpose flour or a gluten-free 1-to-1 blend
  • 1 tsp. salt divided
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • 1 egg large
  • 1 Tbsp. milk or a non-dairy substitute
  • 1 cup crushed tortilla chips
  • ½ tsp. cumin
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp. paprika

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425℉.

  2. Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits, take off the peels, and then cut into 8 slices.
  3. Add flour, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper to one medium-sized shallow bow. Whisk together the egg and milk in a second shallow bowl. Mix the crushed breadcrumbs, cumin, garlic powder, paprika, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper in a third shallow bowl.
  4. Dip a few of the avocado slices in the flour, dredge in the egg wash, making sure to let any excess drip off, and then coat with the crushed tortillas, pressing the crumbs into the slices so they stick. Repeat this until all of the pieces are completely covered.

  5. Lay the coated slices on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

  6. Spritz all of the slices with a bit of non-stick cooking spray.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway through. They should be lightly golden and crispy when done.

Recipe Notes

*Look for ripe but still slightly firm avocados so they're easier to work with.

Meal Prep and Storage

  • How to prep ahead of time: If needed, you can crush the tortilla chips up to 1 to 2 days ahead of time, just keep them in an sealed bag.
  • How to store: Keep leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. Be aware the coating will soften as they sit in the refrigerator, however.
  • How to freeze: It is not recommended to freeze avocado fries.
  • How to reheat: The best way to maintain their crispy coating is to return them to a 350 degree oven or toaster oven for 10-15 minutes, or until heated through.  Microwaving them is NOT recommended and will likely result in mushy instead of crispy fries.
