  • 1 pack corn chips
  • 1 jar salsa

  1. Mince: (a) If using the store bought vegan mince add it in a pan with 400ml water. Mix and stir, cooking for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Heat a little oil in a pan and sauté the mince for about 5 minutes. Set aside.

  3. Make your guacamole by mashing the avocado and season with the lime juice, salt and pepper to taste.
