Method

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Mix the spices with the oil, season, then rub all over the pork. Heat a large ovenproof frying pan to high and cook the pork, turning, for 5 mins. Transfer to the oven and cook for 15-20 mins until cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, make the guacamole. Mash the avocado flesh with the spring onions, chopped coriander leaves, kidney beans, cherry tomatoes and lime juice. Season to taste.
  3. Split the pitta breads, cut into triangles and put on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven for the last 5 mins of the pork’s cooking time, until crisp. Remove both the pitta and the pork from the oven. Set the pork aside to rest for 5 mins before slicing evenly.
  4. Spoon the guacamole onto plates and top with the sliced pork and pitta chips. Garnish with the reserved coriander.

Tip: Sprinkle ½ tsp smoked paprika onto the pitta chips before baking for a spicy flavour boost.
