I love avocados and there is simply nothing better than homemade guacamole.  Give this easy recipe a go.  Trust me, once you have make your own guac, you'll never look back.  Top your delicious guacamole onto nacho corn chips to make them super special and yummy.

Guacamole Ingredients:
3 avocados, ripe
1 lime
1 tomato, diced
½ red onion, finely diced
½ bunch of coriander, finely chop stems & roughly chop leaves
Salt & pepper, to taste

Guacamole Method:
Roughly mash avocados with a fork.  (Note: Keep the seeds.)  Squeeze in the lime juice and mix to combine.  

Dice tomato, red onion and coriander.  

Combine all ingredients and season with salt and pepper, to taste.  

(Tip: If you aren’t eating the guacamole straight away, put the avocado seeds into the dip and tightly wrap with plastic wrap, taking out as much air as possible.  The lime juice, avocado seeds and plastic wrap will all help keep the dip fresh.)

Nachos Ingredients:
Plain corn chips
Tasty cheese, grated
Tomato salsa
Jalapeños, diced
Light sour cream

Nachos Method:

Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.  Place half the corn chips into an oven proof dish.  Sprinkle half the tasty cheese over the top.  Repeat with the rest of the corn chips and cheese.  

Place into the oven for about 10 minutes or until cheese has melted.  

Top with tomato salsa, jalapeños, guacamole and sour cream just before serving.  

Serve warm. (Note: I don’t like putting all the toppings on prior to placing in the oven as I find the corn chips get soggy too quickly.)
