Who’d have thought avocado, sweet chili sauce and sour cream would go so well together. SO GOOD! So easy, too.
Cuisine Vegetarian

Calories 540kcal


  • 1 large potato
  • ½ avocado
  • 1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce (or sundried tomatoes)
  • 1 tsp butter (or vegan margarine)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tsp lemon juice (for the avocado)


  • Microwave the large potato for nine minutes. A medium potato needs seven minutes and a small potato needs five minutes. To add extra potatoes allow an extra four minutes for a large potato, three minutes for a medium potato and two minutes for a small potato. This is using a 1000w microwave – adjust for slightly longer or shorter if yours is a higher or lower power. Don't forget to pierce the potatoes with a fork a few times.
  • Mash up the avocado. Add salt and lemon juice.
  • When ready, slice a deep groove through the middle of the potato in both directions. Repeat the process diagonally.
  • Add butter, salt and pepper to the potato.
  • Layer the avocado over the potato, followed by the sweet chilli sauce (or chopped sundried tomatoes).
  • Enjoy!


The nutritional information is with sweet chilli sauce (not sundried tomatoes) and includes all optional ingredients, too 🙂
