Avocado Fries with Cilantro-Lime Ranch Dipping Sauce

No matter how big a fan you are (or aren't) of fried foods, there is something utterly addicting about the cool combination of avocados, a crunchy topping, and a tangy dipping sauce.

Ingredients

2
ripe-but-firm avocados
1
cup Bisquick™ Original baking mix
1/4
teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2
teaspoon garlic salt
1
egg
1/4
cup milk
2
cups vegetable oil (for frying)
1
lime, freshly squeezed
1/2
cup ranch dressing
2
tablespoons fresh cilantro, finely chopped

Directions

  • 1 Halve, core, and slice the avocados into long, thin pieces.
  • 2 In a small bowl, mix together the Bisquick™, red pepper flakes, and galic salt.
  • 3 In a second small bowl, whisk together the egg and milk.
  • 4 Transfer 2 tablespoons of the milk mixture into the Bisquick™ mixture. Stir until the Bisquick™ becomes coarse and crumbly.
  • 5 Pour the remaining milk mixture over the avocados.
  • 6 Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
  • 7 Gently transfer the avocados from the milk mixture into the Bisquick™ crumbs. Press lightly to coat each slice of avocado with the crumb mixture.
  • 8 Slide the crumb-coated avocado slices into the hot oil. Fry just until the outer coating turns golden brown. Remove from the oil and transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel.
  • 9 In a small bowl, stir together the lime juice, ranch, and cilantro.
  • 10 Serve avocado fries immediately with Cilantro-Lime Ranch Dip.

Avocado Fries

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

Avocado Fries are the ultimate snack.


When I was a kid, there was a teensy little concrete restaurant down the road from our home. The windows were always adorned with handwritten weekly specials, there was a buzzer that dinged when you walked inside, and a single booth in which to eat. It was pretty small town America.

We’d ride our bikes down to buy a snowcone or burger. But, when the restaurant started offering fried vegetables, my mom (the original health nut of all time) actually started dragging us down there for what she called, “totally irresistible” fried mushrooms and zucchini.

Those snacks didn’t much fit into mom’s perpetual diet, and this one probably wouldn’t either. But, inspired by those fried veggies of yesteryear, I took the kitchen to pull together a batch of incredibly sublime Avocado Fries.

Avocado Fries Recipe

As if a golden brown, crispy coating isn’t enough to make you swoon for a month, I paired our fries with a Cilantro-Lime Ranch Dip that so beautifully complements the creamy warmth of the fries with a kick of zingy flavor.

If frying up a batch of avocado fries sounds delicious, but frighteningly finicky, here are a few tips and tricks to make your fries perfectly divine.

Get Ready!


Gather your ingredients. You don’t need many. An egg, milk, some Bisquick, and two avocados that are ripe but still slightly firm. Save those uber-mushy avocados for your favorite guacamole recipe.Go Spicy! To enhance the flavor of your batter, add a pinch of flaked red pepper and garlic salt to the Bisquick.

How to Make Avocado Fries

Coat It!


Then, all you’ve got to do is whisk the egg and milk together, toss it right on top of your sliced avocados and you’re exactly five minutes away from serious snacking.

Batter up!


Lift your avocados from the egg and milk mixture into the Bisquick mixture. You ready for the biggest secret of all? Amp up the texture of your crumb coating by mixing a tablespoon of the egg mixture into your Bisquick. Just use a fork to crumble it all together. Then, coat the avocado slices with that bad boy.

Fry day! Fry Day!


Carefully place your crumb-coated avocado slices into a pan of hot oil. Stay close! These little puppies cook quickly, so you’ll want to be ready to transfer them out of your oil and onto a paper towel. Allow the fries to cool just slightly, then serve them in ranch dressing.
