Grilled Corn Avocado Salsa

Just in time for summer, paired with tortilla chips straight from the oven this Grilled Corn Avocado Salsa will become a BBQ favourite.  Need a little spice to kick it up a knotch? Just add a little more fresh jalapeño.


Tortilla Chips

4 large tortilla shells

1 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp garlic salt


  1. Cut into triangles using a pizza cutter, place beside each other on a cookie sheet and spray lightly with cooking spray.
  2. Mix spices and sprinkle over tortilla chips before placing in the oven on broil for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown. Watch to make sure they do not burn.
  3. Flip each chip, spray again with cooking spray and sprinkle a little more spice on the other side. Don’t over-do the spice or they will be too salty.
  4. Continue to broil the second side for less time, just enough to brown slightly.
  5. Allow to cool before serving.
Note: you will likely have left over spices unless you make a larger batch of chips.
