Baked Avocado Fries

This is another Produce for Kids recipe because I love that website so much. You can find the original Baked Avocado Fries recipe here. Another easy, fun recipe that requires minimal effort.

This is a fun alternative to french fries. Not difficult to make at all and really versatile; you can use a multitude of different spices in this, depending on what flavor you're going for.

Notes for Next Time: As I said and as you can now see, this is a really simple recipe. Two easy ones in a row! Both side dishes or snacks that can be made in less than 30 minutes.  

I felt the cornmeal was a little overpowering in this recipe, so I will likely cut it back to around 2/3 cup, if I do this one again. The Mrs. Dash added great flavor, but because of the Hispanic flavor this did not dip well with the standard ketchup or ranch dressing. It tasted great with salsa, though. I'm a dipper. I need something to dip. 

That's honestly all I have to say about this one. It was fun and easy and even reheated well on days 2 and 3. I really can't say I have a lot of complaints, which is nice! Maybe I'm finally getting better at this whole cooking thing.
