  • 1 medium bulb garlic (2 oz)
  • Dash ground red pepper (cayenne) or few drops red pepper sauce, if desired
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 3 plum (Roma) tomatoes, seeds removed, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • Assorted fresh vegetables for dipping, such as carrots and cucumbers
  • 3 flour tortillas (8 inch)
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 medium avocados, peeled, pitted
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper


  • Heat oven to 350°F. Carefully peel paper-like layers from around bulb of garlic, leaving just enough to hold garlic cloves together. Cut 1/4- to 1/2-inch slice from top of bulb to expose cloves. Place cut side up on 6-inch piece of foil; wrap securely in foil. Place in pie plate or shallow baking dish. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until garlic is tender when pierced with toothpick or fork. Cool.
  • Spray 2 large cookie sheets with cooking spray. Cut each tortilla into 12 wedges. Place in single layer on cookie sheets. Spray with cooking spray. Bake uncovered 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown and crisp.
  • In medium bowl, mash avocados. Stir in 1 teaspoon of the roasted garlic*, the lime juice, salt, black pepper and red pepper. Stir in onion, tomatoes and cilantro. Serve with baked tortilla chips and vegetables for dipping.
