There is no right or wrong way to eat guacamole. Shovel it into your mouth with chips, go crazy with a spoon, or whip out a deep fryer and see what magic you can create by dipping that dollop of mashed-up avocado into a vat of hot oil. That's right — deep-fried guacamole is totally a thing, and on a day like Cinco de Mayo when everything seems possible and tortilla chips feel a tad overdone, would you really want to be eating anything else?
The concept behind this recipe is pretty straightforward: People love guacamole, people love things that are fried. Combine these two ideas together, and suddenly you find yourself munching on crispy, crunchy nuggets of perfection that make you think that, armed with a basic deep fryer and a bottle (or two) (or three) of canola oil, you can make the world a much more beautiful place. And you can.
So how do you take your guacamole-eating experience to the next level? We decided to try what I'll call the dumpling approach to making our deep-fried treats. A spoonful of guacamole scooped into the middle of a square egg roll wrapper and thrown in the deep fryer for two-and-a-half minutes was all it took to transform regular old guac into super amazing, I'll-never-forget-you guac. A little lime squeezed on top added an extra zesty kick, and you can play around with different dipping options if you're looking to get really wild. (Dipping fried dip in dip? What won't you do?!?!?!)
Here's what you'll need:
- Egg roll wrappers
- Canola oil
Or go the store-bought route. We won't judge.
Do this by beating two eggs in a bowl with a fork.
Seems easy enough, right?
Line the edges of your egg roll wrapper so that everything will stick together.
Fold up your egg roll wrapper like a dumpling, and pinch the edges so that guacamole won't leak out.
Fry for two to three minutes.
