Guacamole is one of the easiest sides to make specially when avocados are in season! Seriously it’s a matter of slice and scoop the avocado, mash with a fork, add some diced onions, tomatoes and chillies mix it all up squeeze of lime (in my case splash from a bottle!) and sprinkle of cilantro!
So I used
Tbsp of cilantro
2 tbsp of lime juice
Few chillies ( this depends on how spicy you like and how spicy the are!)
Now I freeze this all the time- so this made approximately 5 servings of 250mls (I froze 4 and kept one out for the meal!)
Then the salsa with is another food processor miracle!
5 big fresh tomatoes (or for you lazy ones 1 tin chopped tomatoes )
1 tbsp tomato purée
2 tbsp lemon juice
I clove garlic
Pinch of salt
Turn on the machine and whizz it up! All done!! Again, you can make a batch and freeze some!!
Now for TGI Fridays style nachos (minus the Colby cheese – I used a mix of red Leicester and cheddar)
Cut a soft tortilla into 1/8ths and back in the oven at 200f for a few mins until they are lightly brown and no longer soft.
Sprinkle cheese and topping of your choice ( Fridays only add jalapeños)
Bake again until cheese melted
Now onto my awesome burrito bowl! This is a bed of lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, quinoa (with lemon and cilantro ), beans ( black, pinto, black eyed and green pea beans cooked with onions, cumin, garlic and cayenne), with lots of salsa, guacamole , some plain homemade yoghurt and sprinkle of cheese!
