For the Fries:
2avocadossliced into ¼ inch slices
A spoonful of floursee directions
3tsp.of Red Pepper or Chili Powder
¼tsp.ground black pepper
2c.all purpose flour
For the Aioli:
2 ½Tbs.lime juice
¾tsp.chili seasoningwe 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 ¼-½? 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.
