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
- 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!
