This Mexican-inspired dish is easy to make and a fab change of pace. Chicken is sauteed with vinegar, lime juice, spring onion, garlic and oregano for loads of flavour, then served in flour tortillas with tomato, lettuce, grated Cheddar and tomato salsa.

My grandmother came up with this recipe to use up some larger than life marrow that came from her garden. You can use courgette if you haven't any marrow. Also a nice way to use up those leftover bananas!

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.
