We can’t travel right now, but our tastebuds can! Use your mealtimes to transport yourself to more exotic surroundings — from the safety of your kitchen. In this edition, we’re settling into a Mexican feast…
Let’s start with nachos!
Who doesn’t love nachos? Whether you’re in the mood for a classic chilli con carne topping, a tasty veggie version or mouthwatering barbecue pulled pork, we’ve got your dream nachos right here. Feeling a little bit fancy? Make your nibbles a special occasion with these luxury seafood nachos! Napkins mandatory.
What’s better than taco night? NOTHING, that’s what. This shredded beef barbacoa is one of our all-time favourite taco fillings; cooked low ‘n’ slow, it’s a simple recipe that’s big on flavour. (It makes a great burrito filling, too!)
For something a little more indulgent, check out our Baja fish tacos, with white fish coated in a light beer batter.
One for the veggies and vegans in the house, these roasted squash and black bean tacos make clever use of silken tofu by whizzing it up with lime juice and coriander to create a moreish plant-based crema sauce.
Ever thought about turning those tortilla wraps into bowls? You will NOT be sorry. Everyone will adore these chicken tortilla burrito bowls.
Quick, easy and super satisfying, we’re big fans of fajitas for a crowd-pleasing midweek meal. Whether you prefer the classic chicken filling or tender marinated sirloin steak, fajitas are endlessly customisable: just put the toppings in the centre of the table and let everyone help themselves! For those meat-free days, try these tasty sweet potato fajitas — even the carnivores will be satisfied.
When the weather is good, why not make your fajitas an al fresco affair? This barbecued pork version will have everyone crying out for seconds (and thirds!).
Speaking of barbecuing…
If you’re already looking ahead to the long weekend (and who isn’t?!) check out this Mexican-inspired barbecue menu, complete with burgers, sausage dogs, a tasty corn salad and — of course — margaritas. Aaaaand chill.
A bit on the side
Adding a couple of tasty extras will bring any Mexican meal to the next level. This fresh, zingy pico de gallo and this luxurious queso dip both work as well with tortilla chips as they do as toppings for those tacos or nachos, while this Mexican street corn is the perfect middle ground between sweet, spicy and creamy. And don’t forget the guac!
