As these things happen I was yet to be exposed to a decent experience of the cuisine. Last Saturday night that changed. Very good friends of mine were back in the country last week so food and celebration were high priorities. Dinner last Saturday was hosted by a friend who lived for six months in South America. She recently discovered that it was possible to buy proper cornmeal for tortillas now, and these made a delicious base to the meal.
We accompanied the meal with freshly made guacamole. I love searching the internet using search terms like 'authentic recipe for xxx.' Blogs can be the best for this kind of thing because the comments sections are so valuable. I particularly enjoyed the lime juice/ lemon juice debate in the guacamole recipes I read! We also had refried beans and a small amount of chicken thigh meat diced with a Mexican Seasoning Mix from the same range mentioned above. I was quite taken with the ingredients in the mix, including dried plum, cinnamon and citrus! Too yummy.
I'm keen to try some more examples of food from Mexico or South America, particularly using beans - can anyone suggest any?
