Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips With Guacamole Avocado Dip

This light snack food is prepared by Piggy Joanna when she came back from KL for the CNY celebration a fortnight ago.  After a satisfying reunion dinner, we adjourned to the sitting hall to have a session of some catching up. We have not seen each other for some months now and there were lots to catch up with each other.   We relaxed and with  soft music in the background we drank wine and snacked on these delicious tortilla chips with guacamole avocado dip prepared by our Joanna.  A happy bonding time together drinking and sharing what 2012 had been for us.   Thank you Piggy Jo for a wonderful snacking and bonding time together.   Read on for Joanna's Guacamole Avocado Dip recipe.......

The preparation for the chips is the same as tortilla chips in the previous post , except these chips does not the paprika and cayenne pepper on it.   The plain ones are better if eaten with guacamole dip.  And I asked Piggy Jo for the recipe and she is sharing it here.  She told me , she make guacamole avocado dip very a mother I am proud of her :)   And my fruit of labor, today, I get to eat food prepared by my baby girl  hmmmm..... I am the most happiest momsie in my residence :p
