The Mexican food revolution is sweeping across the UK with more new outlets opening than any other type of cuisine. With 2017 being dubbed the year of the “taco takeover”, Country Range development chef Paul Dickson shows you how to ride the Mexican wave and create five deliciously different dishes using Country Range Flour Tortilla Wraps…
1. Tortilla pizza
Use our Country Range 12” Flour Tortilla Wraps topped with a little of our Chilli Con Carne sauce to create a quick and easy Mexican pizza. Build the layers as you would a traditional pizza, top with our grated Mozzarella cheese and bake in a hot oven before finishing it with sliced avocado, NEW Country Range Sliced Green Jalapeños and a little rocket.
2. Homemade Cajun spiced tortilla chips
This is a fantastic way to use leftover tortillas by cutting them into wedges, coating them with a little Cajun spiced olive oil and baking at 180°C for 6-7 minutes. These are perfect served with a fresh made guacamole or hummus.
Use tortillas the same way as you would use lasagne sheets to create a Mexican inspired spin on the Italian classic. Use our Chilli Con Carne sauce to make the meat filling and instead of the white sauce use a little sour cream. Top with a good sprinkle of our grated mozzarella for a super flavour packed main.
4. Cinnamon sugar tortilla crisps
Take a couple of our tortilla wraps and spread a little butter across them as if buttering toast, sprinkle with a generous amount of cinnamon and sugar and cut in to triangles. Bake at 180°C for 6-7 minutes and serve warm as a Mexican accompaniment to our Salted Caramel Ripple Dairy Ice Cream or with a fresh fruit salad.
5. Baked egg in a tortilla shell
In a lightly greased muffin tray take half tortilla wraps and carefully press in to the individual moulds. Crack an egg in to each mould and sprinkle with a little crushed chilli and sea salt before putting in a preheated oven for about 8 minutes. Add some grated cheddar and a few jalapeños and bake for another 5 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling. Serve with some streaky bacon and crushed avocado as the perfect Mexican inspired brunch.
