for the potatoes

  • 6 medium potatoes (choose a fast-cooking variety)
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of salt (to taste)

for the guacamole

  • 1 red chili pepper
  • 1 avocado
  • 4 teaspoons of lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt (to taste)


  • 3 tablespoons of chopped coriander leaves


  1. Boil the potatoes in their jackets and leave them to cool. Halve them and scoop out the flesh, leaving 5 mm over the skin. Set aside the potato flesh.

  2. For the filling, finely chop the chili. Crush the potato flesh and the avocado with a fork and mix them with the remaining guacamole ingredients.

  3. Brush the potato skins with the olive oil and grill them on their cut side over high heat for 3–4 minutes. Turn them over, fill them with the potato guacamole, and finish cooking for another 3 minutes with the lid closed.

  4. Top with chopped coriander and serve with lime wedges.
