Cooking Lab - Super Beef Nacho with Guacamole

Guacamole is so versatile and is really easy to make at home. Nothing beat the fresh creamy rich taste of avocado on top of some beef nachos.

A perfect appetizer to feed a crowd. 
Instead of sour cream, I used a blue cheese & pistachio dip instead.

This is one Super Bowl of snack deliciousness. 


 - 2 ripe avocados 
- 1 truss tomato 
- 1 small lime 
- 50g coriander 
- 1 pack corn chips 
- 100g pre-made Chili Con Carne
- 1 tablespoon mixed cheese 
- 2 tablespoon blue cheese & pistachio dip 
- Salt & pepper to season 


1. Half and stoned the avocado; dice the tomato and roughly chop up the coriander leaves.
2. Place the avocado flesh into a mortar.

3. Lightly crush the avocado with the pestle.

4. Add the diced tomato, chopped coriander into the mortar. Add in the juice of a lime.

5. Mix them roughly with the pestle.
6. Warm up the chili con carne sauce in the oven.

7. See recipe for my beef and red wine Chili Con Carne here.

8. Arrange corn chips on a large serving plate.

9. Pour chili con carne meat sauce on top.

10. Scatter some mixed shredded cheese on top.

11. Spoon the guacamole on top.

12. Add a dollop of blue cheese & pistachio cream dip on top.

Vegetarian version - omit the beef chili con carne. 
Daily-free version - omit the cheese and the blue cheese dip on top. 

This is exactly what you want on a cold Winter night: corn chips, ground beef and fresh guacamole. I think we are happy to have this all day long :)
