Santa Maria Fajita challenge - yummy !

We love eating different foods at home and I do have a roster of meals that I make to encourage everyone to try new tastes and a range of ingredients and fresh vegetables. One of the favourite meals is our take on Mexican food and I have to admit that I buy a lot of Santa Maria products that make it really easy to prepare a quick and tasty meal for everyone. I keep sachets of the fajita and taco mixes and always have tortillas which can also double up as wraps.

When I make fajitas I use quorn and fresh vegetables. usually mushrooms and peppers. I also often sneak in a spoon of marmite to jazz up the taste a bit - it works really well. We also like all the paraphernalia that goes with fajitas like jalapeƱos and delicious dips. It's a real treat to try food from different places.

It seems we're not alone in enjoying a variety of flavours as Brits are now eating dinner from up to six different countries during the week. According to research commissioned by Santa Maria:

  • Two thirds of Brits said they find worldly cuisine more flavoursome than traditional British dishes
  • More than three quarters of Brits felt they are more adventurous in their food choices than their parents ever were
  • 40% of those polled said foreign dishes like stir fry, curries and fajitas were actually easier to get right than traditional meals
  • Spaghetti, lasagne and chilli con carne rank 1-3 of the nation’s favourite food imports 

Disclosure: The lovely folks at Santa Maria sent us yummy products to make fajitas with.
