I’ve fancied making taquitos for a while now and when I eventually got around to it I thought they were really good. If you don’t know what taquitos are, they’re basically a tortilla wrap that’s filled with tasty ingredients, wrapped up like a cigar and then fried in a little oil to create a crispy tube that encases its filling.
Dan Dan chicken is a brilliant meal that always goes down a storm with my family whenever I make it. This recipe has been developed from the traditional Chinese Sichuan recipe for Dan Dan noodles which is normally made with a spicy chilli and pepper sauce that’s filled with preserved vegetables surrounding minced pork and spring onions which is served over noodles. I’m not a big fan of minced pork in noodle or rice dishes though, so I just made mine with chunks of chicken breast instead.
Pork gyros are really tasty little balls of pork sausage meat which are served in flatbreads along with tart, fresh cucumber and mint-laden tzatziki sauce. They really are a perfect meal to have for lunch or as a light dinner during the summer because they’re not too heavy and the tzatziki sauce and salad keeps the meal nice and fresh.
The other night I was debating over what to cook for dinner and I realised that I was really in the mood for a good quality beefburger. When I inspected the contents of the fridge I was pleased to find that I had some grated parmesan left over from a pasta dish I’d made a couple of nights before, so I decided to make Italian beefburgers with rosemary fries on the side.
