  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 4 thick slices good-quality bread, such as sourdough
  • 9 ounces chorizo sausage
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 limes
  • 4 scallions
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 drops of tabasco sauce


  1. Directions:  Cut the sausages into bite-size pieces
  2. Heat a skillet or frying pan, add the sausages to the dry pan, then fry for 5 minutes, until golden and crisp around the edges
  3. The sausages will release their own red oil as they cook. Meanwhile, cut each avocado in half; then use a spoon to scoop out the pits (stones) and the flesh
  4. Roughly slice or chop the flesh.To cut an avocado in half, very carefully push the blade of a knife into the flesh, until the knife stops at the pit
  5. Slide the knife all the way around the avocado, keeping the blade against the pit
  6. Pull out the knife, then twist the 2 halves apart. Thinly slice the scallions (spring onions) and squeeze the juice from one lime
  7. Add the juice and onions to the avocados in a bowl
  8. Add the Tabasco and oil, then season to taste with salt and pepper
  9. Cut the remaining lime into wedges. Preheat the broiler (grill) and spread out the bread on a baking sheet
  10. Toast until golden on both sides
  11. Cut the garlic in half and rub the cut side over the toast
  12. Drizzle with a little extra-virgin oil. Top the toast with the avocado mixture, followed by the sizzling sausages and a spoonful of the cooking juices
  13. Tear the cilantro (coriander) leaves over the top and serve with the extra lime wedges for squeezing.More chorizo recipes on Food Republic:Chorizo And Shrimp Rice RecipeChorizo Potato Bites RecipeChorizo, Potato And Green Chile Omelet Recipe
