Chicken fajitas are on the menu here every week because they're so quick and easy to make. We like ours just as they come, but feel free to add grated cheese, soured cream, guacomole according to taste.
Honey is a common sweetener in Mexican foods, and this recipe combines with the mild heat in the rub to produce an easy lunch or evening meal.
Pulled lamb is a great alternative to pork, and works just as well. The slow cooked shoulder smells great cooking with the Mexican spices, and shreds beautifully to make the perfect flatbreads with a splash of Sriracha mayonnaise.
Friday night is Chilli night! Make a pot on Friday, and keep dipping in over the weekend. This chilli is really flavoursome, but mild! Just add a chopped chilli to raise the heat.
Slow cooker soups are great! Put in the pot on the Friday evening and you have lunch ready for the next day. The flavours in this Mexican Chicken & Bean Soup are superb – just add more chilies if you want more heat.
