For the guacamole

2 avocados

1 small red onion, finely diced

1/4 cup fresh chopped coriander leaves

juice of 1/2 a lime

1 green Serrano chilli or Cayenne chilli

1/2 teaspoon sea salt flakes

For the black beans

1 cup cooked black beans

1/4 teaspoon sea salt flakes

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

juice of 1/2 a lime

freshly ground black pepper


  1. Mix all ingredients for the black beans in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Cut the avocados in half and remove the seed. Squeeze or scoop the flesh into a medium bowl or mortar. Discard the skin.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients for the guacamole and lightly mix with the pestle or a fork.
  4. Spoon the guacamole in a rimmed serving dish. Adjust seasoning to taste (salt, pepper and lime). Top with black beans. Serve with corn chips.


Make sure you season the guacamole and beans well.

If you don’t have dry black beans to cook or handy in your freezer, use the cooked canned ones. Just rinse and drain before continuing with the recipe.
