Product recommendation

Free from nuts. Make sure you use ripe avocados for the guacamole. Test by squeezing the end which should yield to slight pressure.

Preparation steps

1.
For the salsa: mix together all the ingredients until well combined. Leave to stand for 10 minutes.
2.

For the guacamole: pound the chiles, cilantro salt, and onion to a fine paste in a pestle and mortar or blender. Add the lime juice to make a loose smooth mixture.

3.
Put the avocado flesh into a bowl and mash until smooth. Add the pounded mixture and stir well. Cover and chill for 10 minutes.
4.

For the nachos: preheat the oven to 375F.

5.
Put the tortilla chips into a large ovenproof dish. Scatter over half the salsa and all the grated cheese. Cook for about 5 minutes, until the cheese has melted.
6.

Put the remaining salsa in a serving bowl. Put the guacamole in a serving bowl. Serve with the nachos and garnish with cilantro.
