"A lot of issues were on the ballots. In New York City there was Proposition 14. That would put a ceiling on the number of late-night talk shows. And California passed Proposition 21. That would change guacamole officially to guac."

-David Letterman


Pita Chips

2 tbsp olive oil
¼ tsp ground cumin
¼ tsp chili powder
¼ tsp paprika
¼ tsp kosher salt
Pinch cayenne pepper
4 (6-inch) pita breads


3 ripe avocados
2 tbsp chopped red onion
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
10 cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
½ tsp kosher salt
¼ tsp ground cumin
1/8 tsp chili powder

Cilantro, for garnish


1) For the pita chips preheat the oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a small bowl, combine olive oil, cumin, chili powder, paprika, salt and cayenne pepper. Brush both sides of each pita with the olive oil mixture. Cut each pita bread into 8 triangles. Place on prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 8 minutes, flip and bake 5-6 minutes more, until golden and crispy.

2) For the guacamole, mash avocados in a bowl and stir in red onions, cilantro, lemon juice, halved tomatoes, salt, cumin and chili powder. Serve with pita chips and garnish with cilantro.
