Time 00:10


  • 12
    slices of good quality chorizo sausage - diced
  • 1
    ripe avocado
  • 1
    freshly chopped basil or coriander (or both)
  • 1
    squeeze of lemon or lime juice
  • salt and pepper - to taste
  • 6 - 8
    mini pita breads
  • 1
    tub store-bought red pepper hummus


Pre-heat the oven to 200°C. Then heat a small pan on the stove top and add in the chorizo bits. Fry gently until they start to change colour, just 3-4 minutes, stirring often. Remove, drain on kitchen paper and set aside.

Meanwhile, de-stone and roughly chop the avocado and toss with the fresh herbs and lemon/lime juice, as well as a good sprinkling of salt and pepper.

Lightly sprinkle pitas with water and place in an oven-proof dish and then into the oven for 3-4 minutes until they are warmed through.

Remove and serve with the salsa and red pepper hummus.
