SPICY MEXICANA® CHIMICHANGAS

Ingredients:

For the sauce

  • 8 wheat or corn tortilla wraps
  • 2 tbsp oil, plus extra for frying
  • 2 large peppers, preferably mixed colours, cored, deseeded and sliced
  • 1 large onion, peeled and sliced
  • 100 g mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 400g tin mixed beans in water, drained and rinsed
  • 160g Mexicana® Extra Hot, grated
  • 2 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
  • Juice of a lime
  • Salt and pepper

You will also need 8 cocktail sticks


SERVES 4

MEDIUM

Method:

In a large frying pan heat 2 tablespoons of oil and sauté the onion for 2-3 minutes, then add the sliced peppers and mushrooms, continue cooking for another 5-6 minutes until tender. Allow to cool a little and then add the mixed beans, grated Mexicana® and coriander and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper and mix well.

Divide the mixture between the tortilla wraps. To wrap them up, fold opposites sides in, turn 90 degrees and fold the remaining sides over to create flat parcels, secure each with a cocktail stick.

When you’re ready to serve, either deep fry the chimichangas for 2 minutes until golden or alternatively shallow fry in 1.5-2 cm of oil in a large frying pan for 1 minute or so on each side. Either way, remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper. Remove the cocktail stick before serving.

Why not serve them with some shredded lettuce, wedge of lime and a dollop of sour cream?

Add the sweetcorn, kidney beans, chopped tomato and the salt and pepper. Cook for a further five minutes. Get an ovenproof dish and put some of the sauce in the bottom, then add 2 tortillas on top of the sauce. Sprinkle on some grated Mexicana® cheese, add some more sauce, 2 more tortillas and so on. Add any of the remaining grated Mexicana® cheese on top and cook in the oven for 25 minutes.

Serve from the oven with a spoonful of sour cream and guacamole on top.

Notes

This is a well-loved recipe for a mid-week family meal and you can add any vegetables you like. This also freezes very well.

We’re using tortillas in place of lasagne sheets for an added Mexican twist.

MEXICANA® SPICY CROQUE MONSIEUR

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices of crusty white bread
  • Butter for spreading
  • 4 slices of ham
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp of ale
  • 2 tbsp mayo
  • 8 slices of Mexicana® cheese
  • 1 tsp dried Ancho chilli
    (use more if you love chilli!)

20 MINS

SERVES 2

EASY

Method:

Pop the grill on and toast the bread. Butter each slice, once browned.

Mix the mayo and ale with the dijon mustard to make a beer-y mustard mayo.

On 2 of the slices of toasted bread add a slick of mustard mayo, sprinkle over the crushed Ancho chilli then add the 2 slices of ham on each piece and 2 slices of Mexicana® cheese. On the other 2 slices top the bread with 2 slices of Mexicana® cheese each. Put all these under the grill until bubbling.

Eat straight away!

Notes:

This is a deliciously comforting treat, and you can also add a dollop of chutney to it if you wish.

You can also make it meat free simply by removing the ham for a spicy veggie snack.
