Guacamole with Chipotle Tortilla Chips

Chipotle chile powder gives the crunchy chips a smoky kick that pairs well with the guacamole. Use ground cumin or regular chili powder in its place, if you prefer. Prepare the chips up to a day ahead, and store in a zip-top plastic bag.  This recipe will be perfect for tailgating this weekend, and it won’t kill your healthy eating habits that I know you’ve been following.
