Yesterday was Halloween, and I hope everyone had a fantastic time! I was excited to make these Guacamoldy with Creature Chips for my company Halloween party, and for Martha Mondays!
Unfortunately, I didn't think the guacamole recipe was too good. Granted, I didn't use exact measurements. Maybe that's where I went wrong? But it tasted a little too lime-y and was not seasoned well. I guess I am used to Chipotle's guacamole. I did like the idea of using cookie cutters to make shapes for the tortilla chips. I used cat and bat cookie cutters. Next time I would probably use a different kind of tortillas, as mine were too thick. I used a chipotle as well as a yellow corn tortilla, so next time I will stick to flour tortillas. They seem to be thinner. Also, I cooked the tortillas for longer than 12 minutes, and they still were not crispy enough, not enough like a tortilla chip. So overall I was disappointed with the taste-factor of the recipe. But the idea is super cute! And I will definitely make it again with some adjustments. Here is Martha's original recipe below.
