Chicken-Mole

Chicken mole

Mole is a Mexican classic – a thick, dark sauce made with a medley of sweet and spicy chillies, rounded out with bitter chocolate. Served with tender chicken, it’s sublime.

Veggie chilli

This is a lovely alternative to traditional chilli con carne. It's packed with good stuff so is a great choice for veggies and meat eaters alike. I like to serve it with soured cream, guacamole and either rice or tortilla chips, but it’s totally up to you.

Cool Mexican bean wraps

Beans are magical little things and massively underrated. I’m showing them some love by pairing them with exciting Mexican flavours. Baked in a tortilla with veg and cheese until golden on the outside, but oozy on the inside, it’s a real texture extravaganza. Beans are an amazing veggie source of protein and are packed with fibre, which will keep you nice and full. They also count as one of your 5-a-day, so this recipe clocks up up two of your 5-a-day! Use any leftover beans and tomatoes to make some homemade baked beans – add a pinch of paprika for a smoky kick.
