I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Deep Fried Guacamole Balls
...in your mind.

Deep Fried Guacamole Balls


  • 3 perfectly ripe avocados
  • 1/3 cup finely diced white onion
  • 1/3 cup loosely packed chopped cilantro
  • 1 chipotle pepper, minced (the kind in adobo sauce)
  • 1 lime
  • Good pinch kosher salt & ground pepper
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • Crushed tortilla chips, I used blue AND yellow corn - you’ll need about a cup and a half of each, or 2 cups if just using one kind
  • Oil for frying


  1. Put the avo meat (weird huh) in a bowl with the onion, cilantro, chipotle and juice of 1/2 the lime
  2. Mix well to combine, taste for salt then form into small balls and put on a plate lined with parchment - freeze at least 2 hours
  3. Fill a pot or cast iron pan with a couple inches of oil and heat to 360 degrees
  4. Put flour in one bowl, the beaten eggs in another, and then your crushed corn chips (whichever you’re using) on a plate
  5. Coat balls first in flour (shaking off excess) then into egg, (dripping off excess) and finally into the corn chip crumbs
  6. Fry, not overcrowding the plan about 3 minutes, then put on paper towels to drain slightly
