  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 ripe avocados

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: no cooking

Method 

  1. Put the chillies, onions, garlic, coriander, lemon juice and avocado into the blender, season with a little salt and pepper and blender together using the coarse chop programme.

For the tortilla chips

  1. To make the tortilla chips, pour in enough oil to come up to 4 cm in a deep pan, heat.
  2. Cut the corn tortillas into triangles. When the oil is hot, (test one piece first) add about three triangles at a time and fry for about 1 minute until crisp but not too brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on plenty of kitchen paper. Continue to fry off the rest of the tortillas in small batches. When a few come out of the pan bend them over slightly to make them curl before cooling. Serve with the guacamole.
