(Makes 4 servings)
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 40 minutes

  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 2 large avocados
  • ½ red onion, finely diced 
  • 6 plum or cherry tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1-2 fresh chillies, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 limes juiced


Heat the oven to 200°C. 

Brush both sides of the tortillas with a thin layer of olive oil, then cut into triangles with scissors or a pizza cutter on a chopping board. 

Arrange the triangles in a single layer on two baking trays. 

Bake for 7-8 mins. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with sea salt and set aside. 

To make the guacamole, halve and destone the avocado then scoop out the flesh with a spoon and put it into a bowl. 

Pour over the lime juice and season with pepper and a pinch of salt. 

Crush the avocado leaving some chunks, either with a fork or a potato masher whatever you find easier. 

Add the onion, tomatoes and chilies and stir through.
