Ingredients
  

For the Avocado Fries
  • 2 large (about 8 ounces each) avocados, firm but ripe
  • cup cornstarch, coconut flour and all purpose flour work just as well
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup pork rind crumbs, or panko crumbs
  • Chopped fresh cilantro or parsley, for garnish
  • Lime wedges, for serving
  • Dipping sauce, for serving
For the Buffalo Ranch Dipping Sauce

Instructions
 

  • In a shallow dish whisk together cornstarch (or flour), chili powder, salt, and pepper.
  • In a second shallow dish, whisk together the eggs.
  • In a third shallow dish, add the pork rind crumbs (or panko crumbs).
  • Cut avocados in half, longwise - cutting in the center of the avocado from top to bottom. Remove the pit and peel.
  • Then, cut the halves into 1/2-inch thick slices, yielding about 8 to 10 slices per avocado.
  • Dredge each avocado slice into cornstarch to coat both sides entirely, shake off any excess.
  • Transfer to the beaten egg, turn to coat well; lift it up and let excess egg slide off.
  • Transfer to crumbs; turn and coat, while pressing crumbs to adhere on both sides.
  • Spray the air fryer basket with nonstick cooking spray.
  • To the air fryer basket, arrange as many avocado fries as it fits without touching each other. You’ll probably have to cook these in batches.
  • Lightly spray the avocado slices with cooking oil.
  • Set the air fryer to 400˚F and cook the avocado fries for 3 minutes.
  • Flip them over on their sides, lightly spray with cooking oil, and continue to cook for 3 to 4 more minutes, or until crispy and golden brown.
  • Repeat with remaining batches.
  • In the meantime, combine ranch and buffalo sauce in a dipping bowl; mix and stir until well combined.
  • Garnish avocado fries with chopped cilantro and serve with lime wedges and the dipping sauce.
