Recipe: Homemade Nachos and Guacamole

As Team DC gathered in the Mexican Marketplace on Saturday – here’s some quick recipe ideas…


Ingredients for the Nachos:

  • 8 plain tortilla wraps
  • Olive oil
  • Smoked paprika

Ingredients for the Guacamole:

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • Lime juice
  • Ready made tomato salsa
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  • Wahaca Chile de Arbol sauce

Step 1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

Step 2. Cover the plain tortillas in olive oil both sides and then sprinkle with the smoked paprika on both sides also.

Step 3. Cut the tortillas into large triangles.

Step 4. Line a baking tray with baking paper and spread out the triangles around the tray, making sure they are not on top of each other. Bake for 7-8 minutes until golden brown. Leave to cool.

Step 5. Now for the Guacamole. Chop up the avocados and roughly mash with a fork in a bowl.

Step 6. I am all for making things as quick, easy (and tasty) as possible, so I used store bought salsa and mixed in in with the avocado.

Step 7. Add Wahaca Smoky Chipotle sauce to the mix to taste. I found the avocado was a nice cooling agent, so didn’t mind being a bit more adventurous with quite a few teaspoons of this one! And there we go! Use the freshly cooked nachos to scoop up luscious bites of the guacamole, delish!
