2 tsp paprika

2 tsp chilli powder

8 taco shells

Remove from heat and set aside.

To make the guacamole:

Crush the garlic and mix with the coriander and chilli in a bowl. If you have a pestle and mortar, combine the ingredients into a paste.

Add the avocados and roughly crush with a fork or pestle and mortar, so it is still a little chunky.

To construct your tacos:

Heat the taco shells following packet instructions, stuff with your chosen fillings and enjoy.
