Woman's Weekly cookery editor Sue McMahon says: For the guacamole, mash 1 ripe avocado with the juice of half a lemon or a 1 lime and season well. For a homemade salsa, finely chop 1 small onion and 2 ripe tomatoes and add some chopped parsley, seasoning and a little oil and vinegar.

  2. Roast the vegetables for 20-25 mins, until slightly charred.
  3. Add rocket and seasoning to taste and mix until just combined. Squeeze in the juice from 2 of the lime wedges. Take pan to the table or transfer to a hot dish.
  4. Serve with warm tortillas and the rest of the lime wedges, and the tomato salsa, guacamole, sour cream and grated Cheddar cheese. (Not suitable for freezing).
