Avocado and Tomato Sorbet

4 large ripe tomatoes, chopped
3/4 cup tomato juice
1/4 cup plus 1/2 teaspoon olive oil, divided
Juice of 1 lime
1 teaspoon hot sauce (preferably Tabasco)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt, divided
1 small onion, diced
2 ripe avocados
Olive oil cooking spray
1 small lime, peeled, membranes removed from segments, and segments diced
8 baked corn chips, crushed
12 leaves cilantro, roughly chopped

Blend tomatoes, tomato juice, 1/2 teaspoon oil, lime juice and hot sauce with 1/2 cup water in a blender or food processor until smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve; discard solids. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt. Freeze in an ice cream maker, as directed by manufacturer. Store in freezer.

Heat remaining 1/4 cup oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion until tender, about 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low; cook 10 minutes more. Remove from heat; cool to room temperature. Blend in a blender until smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve; discard solids. Set aside.

Slice avocado thinly and divide among 8 small plates, fanning out slices to form a flat surface. Coat avocado with cooking spray; cover with plastic wrap until needed (to prevent oxidation). Place diced lime on and around avocado. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Place 1 scoop sorbet on top of avocado slices; drizzle with 1 teaspoon onion oil. Divide chips among plates; sprinkle with black pepper. Garnish with cilantro.
