Method

  1. Lower the eggs into boiling water and boil for 6½ mins, then put into a bowl of cold water to cool. Slice the avocados and place in a large bowl with the beans, onion, coriander and tomatoes. Measure 3 tbsp of the dressing into a small bowl, then mix in the chilli and cumin. Once the eggs have cooled but are still warm, peel off the shells and cut into quarters. Toss the salad with the dressing and nestle in the eggs. Serve straight away – delicious with toasted tortillas.

Some of the pictures of your recipes do not show on my computer. I get a small square with a red X in it. This does not usually happen. Can you help?

I made this as part of a cold buffet and used the same bottled dressing as recommended(despite my reservations) and it was delicious! Everyone wanted the recipe!
