  • 4 whole firm but ripe avocados (peeled and roughly chopped)
  • 15 ounces fresh crabmeat
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh chives
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 4 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp thinly sliced fresh basil

Mash the avocados, sour cream, 3 tablespoons of lime juice and the chives in a big bowl. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the avocado mixture. Spoon the mixture evenly into the bottom of a clear glass serving bowl. Form an even layer and smoothen the top. Squeeze the crabmeat gently to give off any excess liquid. In another bowl add the sliced basil, mayonnaise, chili, pepper and the remaining lime juice to the crab meat. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the crab mixture. Spoon the crab mixture over the avocado mixture forming another even layer and smoothen the top. Cover and refrigerate the dip till it gets ready to serve. In a pan, heat some oil over medium flame. Fry the tortilla wedges until they are crisp and golden brown. Keep stirring often so that the tortillas cook evenly on both sides. Use a mesh strainer or slotted spoon to transfer the corn chips to paper towels so that the excess oil drains out. Sprinkle salt on the hot chips. Decorate with basil leaves and serve it with some tortilla chips.
