I Will have to give this one a try, sounds lovely.


as a family we love mexican meals and food like this where we can all make our own. Also there is something about eating with our fingers and getting a bit messy that adds to it! Sounds like a nice idea to try steak with this recipe as a change from the chicken and we can now throw in our home grown chilli's and corriander (seems like this recipe was made for us!) will try it this weekend.
