Food // Holy Guacamole Mexican Recipe

When I’m planning a night-in at the weekend and I’m thinking about what to cook, usually there’s just one type of food on the menu…Mexican! Nachos, burritos, tacos.. you get the jist! I just love spicy Mexican food piled high with homemade guac, tons of sour cream and an (un)healthy topping of cheese!

So, last weekend I got to cookin’ in the kitchen and rustled up a huge pan of chilli, cheesy nachos to share and a bowl of homemade guacamole. Plus, we had cocktails, cos what Saturday night in is complete with cocktails?!

   
   
Chillies are one of my favourite recipes as you can’t really go wrong. I pack mine with loads of veggies so I feel like I’m kinda being good to my body and make sure it’s well seasoned so I can really taste flavour. Oh and despite there only being two of us, I make enough to feed a small army so I’m usually still eating leftovers with salad for my lunches at work the following week!

So, what do you need?

  • 500g of 7% lean beef mince
  • Carton of passata
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 courgette
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • Chilli powder
  • Paprika
  • Drizzle of lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to season

I tend to follow the same recipe as I blogged about here when my recipe featured in a cookbook! But I adapted it slightly to include the guac!

   
   
It’s one of my favourite meals to make as it tastes like you’re eating something really naughty when actually it’s packed full of veggies and quite the opposite!
