Wilm, a faithful reader from way back, has asked for some more Mexican food ideas. What follows is a meal that is influenced by Mexican food but I wouldn’t really call it Mexican food.
Cook some mince (ground beef) with a chopped up onion. Add one can of Watties Mexican Baked Beans (have you seen those? They’re new. They’ve also got an Italian, Indian, and some other flavour one) or Chili Beans. Mix well. Serve over nacho chips, topped with sour cream, shredded cheese, maybe some tomato and avocado. My husband loves this! So easy.
Another variation is to get a couple scoops of chips and serve over chips. In the States you can get something called Chili Cheese Fries, which are WONDERFUL. So this is kind of like chili cheese fries. But New Zealand chips are way better. For our North American readers, chips are what we call French Fries.
Check back later for a recipe for Black Bean Soup (which is delicious and takes about five minutes to make, once you have the beans cooked) and also a recipe for homemade fajita seasoning.
