Mix the guacamole using the back of a fork. I like for my guacamole to have a little texture, so I leave it a little chunky. After it’s mixed, cover it and refrigerate for up to 2 hours before serving.

A fun way to serve this is in a margarita or martini glass with a little margarita salt on the rim!

Next, heat a dry skillet on high and cook the tortilla for about 30 seconds on each side. Toasting the tortilla a little bit before you fry it will help bring out the corn flavor.
