This is not only a favourite in Mexico, but in Britain as well – and for good reasons! Chicken fajitas are the perfect dish to stir up and appetite for the whole family. The perfectly grilled chicken combined with the peppers and spices is heaven in a wrap. If you are not a fan of chicken then beef is a great alternative. Some people like to add a bit of cheese and sometimes even guacamole to the wrap to make it a complete mixture of Mexican classics!


Who doesn’t love nachos! The golden triangles covered in sour cream, salsa, jalapenos, cheese or anything you can get your hands on. For the perfect finish, plate it all up and put it under the grill to melt the cheese and brown the chips to make the perfect batch.
