Guacamole with spicy tortilla chips_picture 1

I’ve managed to survive my first week back at work after the Christmas holidays… Despite the fact it was only a short week I’m feeling rather lazy and so dinner tonight is more of a snack than a meal but nevertheless very tasty. Guacamole is one of my favourite dips as it’s easy to make and universally popular.

Rather than buying store bought corn chips or crackers I have made some spicy tortilla chips. These are simple to make and mean you can control the amount of seasoning which I like as I find some corn chips too salty. You can also switch up the spices according to your mood or simply serve plain.

Why not give this recipe a try and let me know how you get on? Or if you don’t feel like guacamole try making the tortilla chips and dipping them in my carrot and chilli hummus?
