Recipe by Chef Soomro Course: Healthy Mexican


Prep time

25 mins


  • Coriander: small handful coriander, chopped
  • Vegetable Oil: 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Garlic Clove: 8 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • Red Onion: 1/2 small red onion, finely diced
  • Tortilla: 12 corn tortillas
  • Lime: juice 2 limes
  • Avocado: 3 large ripe avocados
  • Chipotle Paste: 2 tsp chipotle paste or 1/2 tsp Chipotle Tabasco
  • Plum Tomato: 6 plum tomatoes, halved
  • Green Chilli: 2 green chillies, deseeded and finely chopped
  • Jalapeno Chilli: 2 green or jalapeno chillies


  1. To make the tortillas, heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Brush both sides of the tortillas with the oil, then cut into triangles with scissors. Arrange in a single layer on 1 or 2 baking sheets and bake for 7-8 mins. Remove, sprinkle with salt and set aside.
  2. To make the guacamole, halve and stone the avocados, then spoon the flesh into a bowl. Pour over the lime juice and a sprinkle of salt, then crush with a potato masher until pureed but still chunky. Add onion, coriander, chillies and chipotle paste. Stir through and set aside until needed.
  3. For the salsa, place the tomatoes, cut-side up, in a shallow baking tray. Season, and place under the grill until blackened, about 15 mins. Meanwhile, in a dry non-stick frying pan, blacken the chillies and garlic. Keep turning to darken on all sides, about 10 mins. When done, peel the garlic and place in a food processor. Place the chillies in a plastic bag to steam for a few mins, then peel, deseed and stem. Add the flesh to the food processor along with the tomatoes, onion, coriander, lime juice and chipotle paste. Season and pulse until chunky.
