Drizzle with olive oil, hot sauce, s&p, paprika, and a touch of cumin. Bake at 400F for 40min. Until crunchy.  3. Make dressing – combine 2 smashed cloves of garlic, 1/3C EVOO, 1 avocado, 3tbsp of Dijon mustard, pepper, 3 tbsp lemon juice, 1/3C grated Parmesan cheese, 3 tbsp white wine vinegar.  4. Add dressing and …
