This is good party food for when you feel like having your mates over and getting your elbows in! I love food that you all dive into round the table! Marinate some faux chicken (I like Redwoods) in lime juice and chipotle sauce for an hour or so in the fridge. While it is marinating knock up some refried beans. Heat some oil in a frying pan and throw a chopped onion in, stir until beginning to colour. Drain a tin of pinto beans and add them to the pan. Crush a clove of garlic and add along with a very finely chopped green chilli (or just half a chopped chilli if you don’t like things too hot!). Using a potato masher, gently crush the beans and stir until they are all mashed. Transfer to an oven-proof dish or bowl and put in a warm oven. Thinly slice some red or white onion and peppers (red, green, yellow – whatever you’ve got). Heat some oil in a griddle and when it is piping hot, toss in the onions and peppers. In another pan, heat some oil and fry the chicken until it begins to colour. Put some flour tortillas to warm in the oven 3 mins before you want to eat. When the peppers are sizzling hot, the chicken is cooked and the beans are warmed through bung everything on the table and tuck in! Serve with a big leafy green salad and some guacamole. ¡Ay, caramba!
