Ingredients for Crispy Avocado Fries with Garlic Lime Chili Aioli:

For the Fries:

  • Avocados: Choose fresh, slightly under-ripe avocados for the best texture. Avoid using overly ripe avocados as they will become mushy during cooking.
  • Eggs: Two large eggs will be sufficient for the recipe.
  • Milk: Any type of milk will work, but buttermilk is recommended for its tangy flavor. Regular 1% or 2% milk are also good options. Nut milks have not been tested in this recipe.
  • Worcestershire sauce: A few drops are enough to add a flavorful depth. You can adjust the amount based on your preference.
  • Seasonings: Choose your favorite combination from red pepper flakes/chili powder and black pepper. Alternatively, you can use Lawry’s Seasoning, Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning, or Old Bay Seasoning for a pre-mixed option.
  • All-purpose flour: This is the preferred type of flour for this recipe.
  • Cooking oil (optional): Only needed for frying on the stove.
    • For baking or air frying: Opt for olive oil cooking spray or another high-heat cooking spray.
    • For frying: Use regular vegetable oil.

Note: The specific amount of oil needed will depend on your chosen cooking method (baking, air frying, or frying).

Cooking your Crispy Avocado Fries:

Three delicious methods to choose from:

1. Stovetop:

  • Heat your oil: Use a deep pan or fryer and heat the oil to a temperature between 350°F and 375°F (use a frying thermometer for accuracy).
  • Fry gently: Carefully place the breaded avocado fries into the hot oil, avoiding overcrowding the pan. Fry for approximately 1 minute per side, or until golden brown.
  • Tip: Don’t overcrowd the pan to maintain even cooking temperature.

2. Oven:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • Prepare a baking sheet: Line it with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat for easy cleanup.
  • Arrange the breaded avocado fries on the baking sheet in a single layer, ensuring they don’t touch.
  • Spray with oil: Lightly mist the fries with olive oil cooking spray to promote crispiness.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Flip the fries halfway through baking for even browning.

3. Air Fryer:

  • Preheat your air fryer (consult your specific model’s instructions).
  • Place the breaded avocado fries in the basket of your air fryer, ensuring they don’t touch to allow for proper air circulation.
  • Spray with oil: Lightly mist both sides of the fries with cooking oil spray.
  • Cooking time: This will vary depending on your air fryer model. Start by cooking for 3-5 minutes, then flip the fries and cook for another 3-5 minutes. Use the “french fry” setting if available, which typically corresponds to a temperature between 350°F and 375°F.
  • Monitor closely: Keep an eye on your fries during cooking, adjusting the time as needed to achieve perfectly golden brown and crispy results.

Remember: Cooking times may vary slightly depending on the thickness of your avocado slices and your specific equipment.

For the Fries:

  • 2 avocados sliced into 1/4 inch slices
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 1 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • pinch all purpose flour see directions
  • 3 teaspoons Red Pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • olive oil

For the Aioli:

  • ¾ cups mayonnaise
  • 3 Tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 ½ Tablespoons lime juice
  • ¾ teaspoons chili seasoning we also sometimes use taco seasoning


  • You should mix up the Aioli sauce first, so that it is ready when you’re ready to eat these little babies.
  • Fill a skillet with oil until about ¼-1/2? full. Heat on med-high until a drop if water causes the oil to sizzle.
  • Slice the avocados into approximate ¼” slices.
  • In one bowl, whisk together your eggs, the milk and the Worcestershire sauce. Add a spoonful or two of flour. You’re looking for a smooth consistency but with a little hold. (this helps when dipping everything). I usually start with about a tablespoon and then add about a ½ tablespoon more. Honestly, I’ve found that a single tablespoon is not always enough.
  • In another bowl, combine the rest of your flour, pepper and red pepper or chili powder – you choose which way you want it. We actually used red pepper. Mix it all together.
  • Now, take each slice of Avocado, dip it into the egg mixture and then the flour mixture, then back into the egg mixture then a final dredge through the flour mixture. Set them on a plate until you have them all ready to cook.
  • When ready to cook, choose your cooking method and follow the directions for that cooking method.
  • on the stovetop, simply heat oil and place avocados into oil, and fry for about 1 minute on each side. Be careful not to crowd them in the pan. Remove them to a paper towel. Allow to cool slightly before enjoying. They are awesome warm or cold!
  • in the oven, simply follow the recipe, but place coated avocado fries on a baking sheet, spray with olive oil cooking spray and bake at 350 degrees for approx. 15-20 or until golden brown.
  • in the air fryer, follow the recipe but place breaded avocado into the basket of your air fryer, careful to keep them from touching so the air will get all around them. Spray with cooking oil on both side. Please keep in mind that all air fryers are different and tend to cook different. I have this OG air fryer, and in mine, I cook them for about 3-5 minutes, flip them and then cook them for 3-5 minutes. I use the french fry setting, but that seems to be roughly about 350-375 degrees. Just keep watch and when you take them out to flip them the first time, determine how much longer you think they need.

For the Garlic Lime Chili Aioli.

  • Mix mayonnaise, garlic, lime juice and chili seasoning in a bowl or in the blender. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving to allow the flavors to marry. Serve on the side of the avocado fries or with any other kind of food.

  1. Jen I can’t wait to see yours. They turned out delicious and I just love the idea of baking/frying veggies to make my kids eat more of them. haha
    Avocados are heaven to me. And I had to giggle at your homemade ranch comment. I absolutely bet they are, I’ll need to do that. (have some sitting in the fridge patiently waiting for something to pair with – I’m making these again today so guess what I’m trying) 😉

  2. Those look absolutely delish! I never thought of deep frying avocado. Hmmmm…. something new to try.
    It’s great to see you are taking part in a monthly writing challenge too. I’ve booked marked you and I will follow along. Looking forward to your posts!

    1. Trish they are pretty amazing. I don’t know why I decided to do it when I did it, but it sounded heavenly and I thought, well – I love asparagus fries so why not use other veggies I love. I’m glad I did. I’m glad you’re following along – the A-Z challenge has been fun so far – can’t wait to show off more of the goodies I made this month. See ya soon!

  3. OMG — now you’ve gone and done it . . . made me actually salivate. ~and I admit to it even though that sounds a bit odd~ Wow, I loved trying asparagus tempura fries and the new A-Fries sound even more tempting. I love the step by step photos and descriptions, as always, Nicole. Wonderful and thank you for creating another delicious dish.

    1. Do you feel the hugs coming across all the miles between us? You always make me smile and say the nicest things to me – you’re so supportive. How did I get so lucky to get to call you a friend? I hope you enjoy these if you decide to try them and give the fur babies a hug from me.

    1. I’m so sorry you don’t like Avocado. That is so hard for me to imagine since I love it so much, but don’t worry – there is plenty in the foodie world I’ll never get on board with either – Brussels Sprouts are one of them. I’ll post my new improved Asparagus fries soon – probably May 1. Unless I collapse from blogging blow out before then. 😉

  7. I’ll be honest, I’ve been staring hungrily at these fries since you first posted them. Had to calm down a bit before commenting 🙂

    Can’t think of much better than a fried avocado.

  8. Looks delicious, and your blog is gorgeous! I’m on the hunt for vegetarian recipes for my husband and I who are not vegetarians. I don’t eat much fried food but I can make an exception for fried avocado.

  12. Oh em gee. These looks freaking fantastic! I came by because of the Blogging from A to Z challenge so I really ought to be commenting on your pizza post, but I don’t eat bacon so…

    However, I love avacado and I’ve never even imagined of having them like this before. I’m totally printing this page out and see these in my near future LOL

    Thank you for sharing 🙂

  13. I might have to try these sometime. I don’t usually eat fried foods, but I might make an exception for these. I remember having fried artichoke hearts as a kid & loving them. Might try that too. Thanks for the follow on twitter & Look forward to visiting again. Drop by anytime @ DearCreatives.

  14. Nicole, I would have NEVER thought of making these myself, so thank you so much for sharing. I love avocado too, and this sounds exactly like my kind of snack. Can you be my mom, too? I don’t need much taking care of, only feeding! I think your kids may have been spoiled by your amazing food too much already 😉

    I’ll have to try and hunt down some avocado to try this (it’s not cheap here in Korea) but I shall persevere. These look to good not to try.

  15. Hi Nicole,
    I saw your link in AtoZ challenge, the dish looks fantastic. I’m going to trying for sure as I love avodacos. I would just say that normally I prepare my own alioli (I’m spanish and alioli is like milk for us 😉 ), the taste is better than when you buy a ready-made mayonnaise

  16. Great minds must think alike! I have these on my blog in a few days.

    These are great with your homemade ranch, by the way! 😀

  17. I always try to make and eat different-different recipe from around the globe and your blog have some best delicious recipes so I will try to make and taste some of them specially this one.
