Mexican avocado spicy dip served with tortilla chips. Can also use as a topping for jacket potatoes or serve on the side with fajitas or enchiladas. I like it spicy but tend to make it milder when entertaining as not everyone likes it hot.

Plantains can only be eaten cooked. Fried plantains are a traditional treat in Latin America and many other parts of the world. Overly ripe plantains work best for this recipe. If you want a savoury experience, serve these with salt. If you want something sweet, serve with sugar and cinnamon.

A tamale is a Mexican and Native American dish consisting of a soft cornmeal (masa) dough filled with meat, cheese or vegetables, then steamed. This recipe is for a flavourful pork filling. If you are making your own tamale dough, you may want to reserve 250ml of the stock before draining - it makes delicious tamales. You can always use this pork filling for tacos, burritos or enchiladas, as well.

This is a classic fried pastry, with versions popular in Chile, Argentina and the US. This recipe is similar to the ones you find in New Mexico. Roll in a mixture of cinnamon and caster sugar immediately after frying, or try drizzling with honey.
