Flour tortillas deep fried in olive oil are amazing. With a dollop of fresh guacamole? Out-of-this-world-delicious! This is one of Jonathan Sciabica’s favorites. It’s always a hit with guests and really simple to make.


  • 6
    Large Flour Tortillas
  • 1/2 inch
    Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a pan
  • 2 Tablespoons
    Jalapeño Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2
  • 1/2
  • 12
    Cherry or Grape Tomatoes
  • 1 Teaspoon
    Garlic Powder
  • 2 Teaspoons
    Sea Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon
    Fresh Cracked Black Pepper
  • 2 Pieces


  1. Pour Marsala Extra Virgin Olive Oil (or your favorite varietal) into a pan until the olive oil is 1/2 inch deep. To save olive oil, use a small pan, to go fast, use a large pan :)

  2. Set pan on medium heat.

  3. Cut flour tortillas into quarters.

  4. Test a corner of a flour tortilla in the oil. It should bubble at the edges if it's hot enough.

  5. Drop tortillas in pan. Flip once browned on one side. Remove once browned on both sides. Place on a paper towel to cool. Sprinkle a little salt on each chip.

  6. Cut Avocado into 1/2" cube sections and place in a serving bowl. Add juice from lemon.

  7. Cut tomatoes into quarters. Add to avocado. Add Jalapeño Olive Oil, 1 Teaspoon Salt, Pepper and Garlic Powder. Mash all ingredients together.

  8. Dollop guacamole on individual chips and garnish with cilantro just before serving!




    I too am from Waterbury, Connecticut like your great grand parents and my Mother’s best friend, Jennie LaBrie was either related to the Sciatica family somehow. We visted the farm in the late 80’s so my mother and her friend could visit. Your grand parents had us for lunch and she shared her Italian recipes with me. I am thrilled that we can order oil from your family. We live in Oceanside, Ca. Just wanted to reach out. Bonnie (Savino) Cornish.
