When we found these little tortilla bowls in the supermarket, we decided they were perfect for turning our usual Mexican bowls into something a little more jaunty. We came up with these Mexican tortilla boats, based on the shape of the bowls and what they brought to mind!
This week we’re sharing one of our all-time perennial favourites. The Mexican bowl is pretty much a staple of our diet: it’s easy to make, tastes fantastic, and is also very satisfying without being too unhealthy.
There’s a lot of components to the bowl that you can mix and match as you like. We always have home-made nachos to start with around the edge. This time we’ve added a black bean mix to the middle, but there are other possibilities too.
This month on Vine we’re sharing with you three great new recipes from Hello Fresh. We signed up to the service through a free trial for one box (although this is not a sponsored post – we have a family member who already uses them and who received a discount code!), and decided to try them out. For this Monday and the next two weeks, we’ll be sharing the results.
I was in Norwich over Christmas and had time to stop off at the Revolucion de Cuba bar and restaurant for lunch. Their Spicy Bean Burger is £10, and the description on the menu reads: “black beans, cannellini beans, sautéed peppers and onions mixed with Cajun spices, then breaded, deep fried, and topped with mango salsa.” It also came with chips in a mug, pickle, some beetroot slices, and paprika and rum flavour mayonnaise, all served on a wooden board.
