  • 2
    avocados, peeled, pitted and roughly chopped
  • 1
    onion, very finely chopped
  • 2
    crème fraiche
  • 1/2
    large lime, juiced or 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • salt and pepper
  • a few shakings of tabasco
  • handful
    of coriander leaves, roughly chopped
  • 150
    cheddar cheese, grated
  • tortilla chips
  • handful rosa tomatoes, chopped
  • extra crème fraiche


Mix the avo into the onion, crème fraiche and lime juice so that it is incorporated but still fairly chunky. Season to taste with the salt, pepper and tabasco and stir through the coriander.

Place an upturned bowl in the middle of a large plate. Arrange the chips around it and sprinkle the grated cheese over the chips. Place under a pre-heated grill until the cheese has melted and the chips are browned in places.

Remove the bowl and place the bowl of guacamole in the centre of the nachos.

Top the guacamole with the chopped rosa tomatoes and, if you like, a dollop of crème fraiche. Serve immediately.
