Chipotle Lime Chicken

Guys I’m taking over my friend’s food truck! The date will be revealed soon, but in the meantime this weekend I’ve just about sorted the menu I want to serve. Lots of dishes tested, and this one is a winner, although it didn’t quite make the cut for the truck! This may be another chipotle…

Mackerel Fish Tacos

Although not a Colombian speciality, I had some cracking tacos in Cartagena. I’m a big fan of smoked mackerel, and the contrast between the fatty fish and pickled onion here is 👌. Try and find corn tacos if you can, although wheat ones work fine too. Takes 30 minutes, makes 4 work lunches INGREDIENTSHot smoked…

Tray Roasted Chipotle Chicken Thighs

This week’s recipe is probably the laziest one yet! Buy stuff, chop a bit and sling in the oven. The chipotle paste is a revelation, well worth snooping around the supermarket to find. Takes 45 minutes, makes 4 work lunches INGREDIENTS1 pack skin-on chicken thighs (six pieces roughly)2 red onions, cut into thick wedges2 peppers,…

Mexican Baked Eggs in Tomato Sauce

Make sure to load up on the chilli, and your head will clear in no time. Happy birthday @heatherlouisey! 30 minutes, makes a meal for 2 INGREDIENTS1 can…

Mum’s Beef Chilli

Since I’m in a Mexican headspace at the minute, I thought I’d share a chilli recipe. My Mum makes a great chilli. So good in fact, I wanted to share it with you all (hope that’s okay Mum!). I’ve tweaked her recipe slightly, dialling up the spices a bit more and adding some red wine…

Chipotle Chicken tacos, refried beans, sweetcorn salsa

And here we are. One week away to the Mexican tacqueria pop-up! Whilst I’m busy in prep mode, I thought I’d share one of the taco recipes, which I’m hoping will be a winner next weekend. I like it. My friends like it. I hope you like it too.  Takes 45 minutes + marinade time,…

Pork carnitas tacos with refried beans and pickled onions

These pork tacos went down a storm at the pop-up last weekend! Slow cooked pork shoulder, unctuous and warmly spiced, marries up perfectly with hearty refried beans and punchy pickled onions. The best tacos really are the perfect mouthful of food, and this pork recipe really takes some beating.  Takes 5 hours (mostly time in…
