I made these for Recipe Tag - and I'm glad that I did. The guac is fantastic and the crisps/chips are an interesting and different addition. After 1st mixing , the dough was a little sticky but that soon went away - I didn't add any additional Bisquick while kneading. I then made 8 balls (halved the recipe) and patted them out by hand/fingers on a plate filled with corn meal (this was very easy). I fried them in my deep fryer instead of using oil in a Dutch Oven - took them out as soon as the edges began to brown, any sooner & they weren't done. They're light and a little flaky, and the corn meal adds an interesting texture (they remind me of a cross between chips, crackers & tortilla's). I used 2 small avacados for the Guac and skipped the bacon bits - it was creamy & chunky and as good as any other guac I've tried (I love tomatos in guac!). Thanks for a great recipe Sharon. I'm not a fan of Bisquick, I think my box is 3 or 4 years old!, but the crisps were fun to make and serve!
