Delicious... what can I say - I simply love this mix. I've long been a fan of Mexican food but the fast food and restaurant outlets that keep popping up just don't do it justice at all - and is it just me who hates this latest fashion of piling everything on top of each other like a mess for a mad dog, making it impossible to eat in company! Loaded nachos - no thanks! Give me a plate of food I can see properly and savour bit by bit!
Rant over - do try this mix. It's my take on the flavours that say Mexico to me. I've not made it too hot so you can taste the different flavours that are brought together here. It makes a mean chilli, is great in pasta dishes, and is perfect for huevos rancheros (a wonderful, spicy, Mexican breakfast made from peppers, onions and tomatoes fried together in a mix of spices and cooked together slowly until soft, at which point eggs are broken into the sauce and covered up whilst they poach in the juices - serve with tortillas, avocado and refried beans... yum!)
