Recipe Notes

  • For easier preparation, use broken-up tortilla chips in place of the fried tortilla strips.
  • Wine Recommendation: Rich avocados demand a full-bodied white wine This is a great opportunity to drink one of those big, oaky California chardonnays that can overpower less flavorful foods.
