Eating round the world for 20 days in lockdown, day 15 Mexico

Beautiful beaches, fun music (we’ll be playing Mexican music during dinner), the home of tequila and Mexican beers. Mexican farmers produce specialist harvests of; vanilla, chilli peppers, avocados and corn. Producing over 26,000 tons of cocoa per year (chocolate) Mexico is the 13th highest producer in the world.

We are making chicken fajitas tonight. This is a quick and easy dinner to make in 15 minutes, so a big thank you to Mexico for inventing this one. I bought an ‘Old El Paso Smoky BBQ Fajita Dinner Kit’ 500g containing 8 x flour tortillas, 1 x seasoning mix, 1 x salsa topping. An easy meal, almost takeaway!
