Ingredients

Tortilla Chips:

3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
3/4 cup olive oil
12 corn tortillas, cut into 8 wedges each

Guacamole:

3 ripe Haas avocado, peeled, pitted and coarsely chopped
1/3 cup chopped white onion
1/4 cup oil packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Directions

  1. Combine the Parmesan cheese and salt in a medium bowl.
  2. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add 12 tortilla wedges and cook, turning once, until crisp and lightly golden, about 3-3 1/2 minutes. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with paper towels and drain briefly. Add to the cheese mixture, toss well to coat and transfer to a serving bowl. Repeat with remaining tortilla wedges.
  3. Place the avocado in a bowl and mash with a fork until fairly smooth. Add the onion, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, lemon juice, salt and pepper flakes; mix well. Serve with the tortilla chips.
