Mini Pitas with Red Pepper Hummus and Chorizo-Avocado Salsa
This is, in fact, hardly a recipe at all, but rather an ‘assemblage’ of sorts. A top notch Tapas assemblage mind you, but an assemblage none the less. But oh boy it’s got guts. The Red Pepper Hummus is the real hero of the dish, and is oh-so-nicely backed up by the punchy Chorizo and Avocado salsa. This is real feasting food, for feeding people you love.
Serves 4 | Preparation time 10 minutes
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
About 12 slices of good quality chorizo sausage, diced
1 ripe avocado
Small handful of freshly chopped basil or coriander (or both)
Squeeze of lemon or lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste
6-8 Mini Pita Breads
1 tub of Red Pepper Hummus
WHAT TO DO
1. Pre-heat your oven to 200C. Then, heat a small pan on the stove top, and add in the chorizo bits. Fry gently until they start to change color, just 3-4 minutes, stirring often. Remove, drain on kitchen paper and set aside.
2. Meanwhile, de-stone and roughly chop your avocado and toss with the fresh herbs and lemon/lime juice, as well as a good sprinkling of salt and pepper.
3. Lightly sprinkle your pitas with water, place in an ovenproof dish and then into the oven for 3-4 minutes until they are warmed through. Remove and serve with the salsa and Red Pepper Hummus.
