Oh how I love ripe seasonal avocado!
When I saw this recipe in Joy The Baker Cookbook: 100 Simple and Comforting Recipes I knew I needed to try it soon!
I would have never in a million years ever thought to deep fat fry avocado. Yet again Joy amazes me! Seriously FRIED avocado. Where have you been all my life?
The best part about this recipe.... I can manipulate hubs into cooking with me!
I hate frying foods. Hot oil scares the bajeezus out of me. So Hubs is my Fry Master ;)
Normally when we get the pot of oil going we go a little crazy on frying things. Pickles, Fish, Chicken, Fries, Veggies.... everything gets rolled in bread crumbs or dunked in batter!
With the avocado... we did an awesome southwestern ranch dip..... I'm dreaming of what I can dip in it next!!
For the Avocado fries I stuck to Joys recipe with one little change... I double dipped them so they had an extra thick crunchy coating! They had a slight kick to them thanks to some cayenne pepper, a little tang thanks to the lime I drizzled over the top... and the inside was perfectly creamy! Dipped in my Southwestern Ranch Dip. They were AMAZING!
