    Oh, were they easy to make? Had some on a ship once, and they were so much better than bought ones. Thinking I might make some next Friday with a home made guacamole, bring back the memories (they made the guacamole at the table and it was fantastic!)

    You would obviously swap the relish for salsa and any other veg you like

    Not sure if this is making them though?!

    Lovely with chilli and cheese on as well.
    Hope bubbs and tweets aren't reading if I'll be kicked off the SW thread.

    You can do them in the oven too, so a little healthier.
