Treat yourself to this beautiful breakfast recipe, made with avocados, chilli and cheddar. 


  • 1 medium onion, diced

  • 2 garlic cloves, finely diced

  • 1 tbsp ghee or coconut oil

  • 2 red peppers, halved lengthways then sliced into chunks

  • 2 cans tomatoes or 10 medium tomatoes approx 1 kilo

  • 200ml water

  • 2 dried bay leaves

  • 1 tsp smoked paprika

  • 4 eggs

  • Cayenne or 1 medium fresh red chilli, (finely chopped) to taste, depends on the strength of your chilli

  • 1 small handful of strong cheddar cheese

  • 1 large handful of fresh coriander

  • ½ lime, sliced into 2 thick wedges

  • Watercress or baby leaf spinach, to serve

  • For the Guacamole

  • 1 large ripe avocado

  • Juice of ½ lime

  • spring onions/fresh chives, chopped

  • ½ clove of garlic, chopped

  • Salt and Pepper, to taste


  • 1.

    Fry the onion, garlic, spices, bay leaves and fresh chilli (if using) in ghee for 5 minutes until softened but not browned.

  • 2.

    Add the red peppers and fry for another 5 minutes.

  • 3.

    Add in the tomatoes, stir, season with salt and pepper and bring to a medium simmer for 10 minutes until you have a thick sauce.

  • 4.

    Meanwhile, make the guacamole: Scoop out your avocado flesh into a bowl and using a spoon, roughly mash the other ingredients together and season.

  • 5.

    Use a spoon to make 4 holes in the tomato sauce and crack an egg into each one. The eggs will poach in the sauce and will cook in 3-4 minutes, we like a runny yolk

  • 6.

    Sprinkle some seasoning over each yolk and dollop some guacamole between the eggs

  • 7.

    Serve on a bed of watercress or baby leaf spinach with a wedge of lime
