For the tortilla chips

  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil

For the guacamole

  • 3 large ripe avocados
  • juice 2 limes
  • ½ small red onion , finely diced
  • small handful coriander , chopped
  • 2 green chillies , deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 tsp chipotle paste or ½ tsp Chipotle Tabasco

For the charred tomato salsa

  • 6 plum tomatoes , halved
  • 2 green or jalapeno chillies
  • 8 garlic cloves , unpeeled
  • ½ red onion , finely diced
  • 2 tbsp coriander , roughly chopped
  • juice 1 lime
  • 1 tbsp chipotle paste or Chipotle Tabasco


  • STEP 1

    To make the tortillas, heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Brush both sides of the tortillas with the oil, then cut into triangles with scissors. Arrange in a single layer on 1 or 2 baking sheets and bake for 7-8 mins. Remove, sprinkle with salt and set aside.

  • STEP 2

    To make the guacamole, halve and stone the avocados, then spoon the flesh into a bowl. Pour over the lime juice and a sprinkle of salt, then crush with a potato masher until puréed but still chunky. Add onion, coriander, chillies and chipotle paste. Stir through and set aside until needed.

  • STEP 3

    For the salsa, place the tomatoes, cut-side up, in a shallow baking tray. Season, and place under the grill until blackened, about 15 mins. Meanwhile, in a dry non-stick frying pan, blacken the chillies and garlic. Keep turning to darken on all sides, about 10 mins. When done, peel the garlic and place in a food processor. Place the chillies in a plastic bag to steam for a few mins, then peel, deseed and stem. Add the flesh to the food processor along with the tomatoes, onion, coriander, lime juice and chipotle paste. Season and pulse until chunky.
