Tortilla Triangles With Avocado Salsa

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

A quick to make recipe from Kurma Dasa's '52 Quick Vegetarian cards'. When I make these, I'll be leaving out all those hot ingredients, but I know I'm undoubtedly in a minority in this taste preference so I'm posting the recipe as on the card! The reviewers so far, I have noted, have omitted the asafetida powder. The Zaar Kitchen Dictionary says that garlic powder or onion powder can be used as a substitute.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut each tortilla into 6 wedges, heat some oil in a small frying pan, shallow-fry the wedges until golden and crips and drain on paper towels.
  2. Combine all the salsa ingredients in a bowl and mix gently.
  3. Serve the tortilla wedges with the salsa as an appetiser or as a snack.

This was a great salsa! I used bagged tortilla chips and left out the lettuce as per previous reviews as I was taking this on a picnic and didn't want to risk soggy lettuce. Good, fresh flavours, with just enough of a kick.

This is a very nice salsa. (I didn't made the tortilla chips) I didn't really care for the added lettuce because it became soggy. I left out the asafetida powder also because I didn't have any, but other than that stuck with the recipe as written. I served this along side tacos and a Mexica Pizza. Thanks bluemoon :) Made for Gimme 5

A really easy and fresh salsa! I used smoked paprika instead of the dried chile, and subbed both onion and garlic powder (couldn't decide! ha) for the asafetida powder. Awesome find, will be making often! Tagged for the February '09 1-2-3 tag.
