ULTIMATE GUACAMOLE

Serves 2

1 small red onion
1 medium very ripe tomato
1 red chilli, deseeded
1 large handful fresh coriander
1 lime
4 medium ripe avocados

In a food processor, pulse the onion, tomato, chilli and most of the coriander until finely chopped, then transfer to a bowl.

Roll the lime over the work surface with some pressure to help juicing, then cut in half, juice it and add to the mix.

Now cut your avocados in half, remove the stones and scoop out the creamy flesh.

Squash the flesh to a pulp with your hands to make it super creamy. Leave a few of the chunks for a bit of texture.

Mix through the blitzed veg, add some seasoning and a little mayonnaise (optional).

Drizzle with olive oil and some more coriander, and serve with nachos.
