With rich and buttery flavour, avocado is the featured ingredient in these crispy fried savoury fritters and also in the creamy dipping sauce. Serve warm on a platter at parties and get-togethers.
Place tortilla chips in food processor; pulse on and off until fine crumbs. You should have around 3/4 cup. Remove from food processor and set aside.
Place eggs, half of the avocado, the chickpeas, cheese, corn, cilantro, green onions, garlic, jalapeño, 1 tsp of the salt and the chili powder in food processor. Pulse on and off, stopping to scrape down side once or twice, until mixture is combined and finely chopped. Transfer mixture to bowl; fold in flour and tortilla crumbs until well combined.
Heat oil in medium skillet over medium heat. Using two spoons, dollop generous tablespoon of mixture into hot oil. Repeat, using half of the mixture to make 12 fritters in skillet. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, turning once halfway, or until golden brown and crisp. Remove with slotted spoon and drain on paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining mixture. Makes 24 fritters.
Add remaining avocado to clean food processor. Add sour cream, lime juice and remaining 1/2 tsp salt; purée until smooth. Add a little water is you prefer a thinner sauce.
Transfer fritters to serving platter and serve warm with avocado dipping sauce.
