Kids Kitchen: Guacamole Boats with Baked Tortilla Chips

By Gia McBrideKids Kitchen Recipes

Reminding kids about double dipping can get so tedious. Especially when the dip is good. When I make guacamole for the kids I like to serve it up in individual little boats using the avocado peels as the vessels. To add to the fun, and keep it on the healthy side, I like making baked corn tortilla chips. It's very easy to do and you can get creative with the shapes. Try this kids kitchen recipe!

Baked Corn Tortilla Chips

3. Using a knife, scissors, or cookie cutters, cut tortillas into desired shapes.
4. Arrange pieces in one flat layer on a baking sheet.
