I sometimes add veg and some precooked chicken or sausage for a main meal, but it can be a side dish also. It goes nicely with BBQ/Grilled food, espcially fish, and with a little sour cream on top.
We enjoy this simple salsa verde with grilled fish or simply on top of cheese and toast. You can make it in advance and it keeps well on the fridge for a few days.
OK, it's not entirely authentic but it's a good version to make with store-cupboard ingredients. Serve with cooked chicken, rice or tortillas, salad greens, sliced avocado and chopped tomatoes round out this fresh tasting meal.
I've tweaked this recipe over the years and I think it's just about right now. My Mother in Law said it was lovely and she's quite hard to please food-wise!
This is a Mexican style dish, very tasty and cheap to make! My husband loves it!
I love these biscuits. They are an easy slice and bake variety, which are chocolaty and crunchy, and have just a hint of spiciness in the finish, from the cinnamon and chilli.
A great dish for parties!
Delicious and comforting tortilla wraps filled with chicken, chorizo and corn filling with a tomato, cheese and sour cream topping and baked. Serve with chilli kidney bean rice or buttered jacket potato and salad.
A mixture of spices and a little cornflour for thickening, that closely resembles the packaged taco spice sachets you might find in the supermarket. There is no salt in this mixture.
The southwestern section of the Unites States (particularly Arizona and New Mexico) utilise many unique flavours and spices. Chillies, Mexican oregano and cumin (cumino) are a normal part of much of our cooking. Surprisingly to some, even cocoa and cinnamon find their way into our everyday dishes as well. Here is the house blend we use on the ranch to season...well, most everything!
Yummy comforting dinner for those cold winter evenings. Chicken enchiladas are baked with a creamy cheese sauce.
Once you know how to blend your own easy taco spice, you will never go back to shop bought. Making your own allows you to play with spiciness and flavours until you get it perfect for your eaters.
A spicy, slightly wet, red seasoning paste made with achiote seeds (or paprika), lemon juice, tequila, chilli peppers, cumin, cloves and other spices. Typically it's used as a rub for meats or chicken before roasting but it's also a delicious addition to stews or chilli.
This is a nicely spiced enchilada sauce - pour over corn tortillas stuffed with cheese and your choice of shredded beef or chicken, or refried beans.
For best results - prepare and marinade chicken or beef a day ahead.
Roast veg take on a spicy persona in this quick version of roast vegetables. This dish is perfect with fish or chicken.
Pomegranate seeds blend deliciously with chillies and fresh herbs. This bittersweet salsa is often found in Mexican cuisine.
This is a superb recipe for a fresh green salsa. The avacado gives the dish creaminess, whereas the tomatillo gives the dish tartness. It's the perfect balance.
This flavour-packed salsa is completely different than the tomato-based salsas. It has an unforgettable combination of chillies, tomatillos, coriander, garlic and lime. Adjust the heat according to your taste.
