Smashed avocado with blue corn & sesame tortilla chips

I’ve used sesame blue-corn chips with this recipe not only for their dramatic colour but also their sweet nutty flavour. They are higher in protein than yellow corn chips and you can find them in the health-food section in supermarkets or at specialty food stores and health shops.

Ingredients

Smashed avocado with blue corn & sesame tortilla chips
  • 3 large fresh avocados
  • juice of 2-3 fresh limes, to taste
  • 1/2 red chilli, finely sliced (optional)
  • 2 tablespoon coriander, roughly chopped
  • 1 packet sesame blue-corn tortilla chips

Method

Smashed avocado with blue corn & sesame tortilla chips
  • 1
    In a medium bowl roughly smash up the avocado flesh with a fork.
  • 2
    Add juice of around 2 limes and ½ tsp salt and mix. Taste and add more salt or lime juice until you have the balance of salt and sour just right. This dish is all about judging the taste as you go.
  • 3
    Add the finely chopped chilli (if using) and chopped coriander. Gently stir through and taste again, adding more if needed.
  • 4
    Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until needed (bring to room temperature before serving or you won’t properly taste the avocado’s creaminess).
  • 5
    Serve in a medium bowl with plenty of sesame blue-corn chips.
