I just can’t even speak…
Make these. Seriously go make these!
Once you do, you’ll question your very existence. You’ll question how you ever went through life without these.
I made these and literally ate the entire plate myself… and since creating this recipe, I’ve made them 4 times! And because they are avocados AND because they are baked, I don’t feel a single bit guilty!
Now if you don’t mind, I need to go make another batch.
Dear God.. go make these!
I mean seriously, just by looking at the picture you can see that crunch they have going on! No oil, no deep frying.. just these luscious lovelies and your oven.
The contrast between the crunchy outside and the creamy smooth inside… OH DEAR SWEET BABY JESUS!
If you notice, I have a dipping sauce to go with this. I made a Creamy Cilantro Dipping Sauce that literally I have eaten straight off of the spoon, have used it on veggies, fish, crackers, another spoon, these avocado fries and chicken. It’s THAT good! No worries though, I’ll be posting it very soon.
