  1. Heat oven to 350 deg F/180 deg Celsius.
  2. Slice baguette on the diagonal (you'll get more slices than you need, but bake them all and save the rest in an airtight container for later use).
  3. Brush with olive oil or butter, and bake in single layer until golden and quite crisp.
  4. Meanwhile, peel and cut avocado's in small cubes in a bowl, add the onion, lime juice, chopped hot pepper (remove seeds!), basil and olive oil.
  5. Season with salt, and toss lightly.
  6. Remove 9 crisp golden bread slices to a serving platter, and place a spoonful of the avo relish on each.
  7. NOTE: Be careful with the chilli pepper or paste: you don't want it too hot. Use less if pepper is very hot.
