This colourful salad bowl is our take on the cuisine of Santa Fe, New Mexico - fresh flavours featuring (mild) chilli peppers in a fusion of Mexican, Spanish and South Western style food. The chilli (or "chile" as they have officially recorded their preferred spelling) is this state's largest agricultural crop and features in most of their dishes. Waiters in New Mexico will ask you "red or green?" referring to red or green chilli when you order a dish. If you'd like both, you reply with "Christmas"!

Great!

Aleksandra - Jun 14, 2019

Chicken came out tasting delicious ! Best I had for ages. I’m not super excited about this dish since it’s quite a bland salad

Adam - Jun 13, 2019

Very tasty, quite spicy

Roy - Jun 13, 2019

Nice spicy chicken and excellent salad dressing

Betina - Jun 13, 2019

The salsa was very spicy though

Alison - Jun 13, 2019

I always give up on recipes when they call for too many spices to find and can't find what you are looking for. This was so quick and easy to put together. Tasted lovely.

Gabriella - Jun 12, 2019

Very tasty

Stephanie - Jun 10, 2019

Rather bland... and not tasty enough to lift a salad.

Aley - Jun 09, 2019

Nice salad but nothing I could not achieved myself

Jack - Jun 08, 2019

Amazing

Katy - Jun 05, 2019

I enjoyed this, my partner didn't as he said it was bland apart from the salsa which I had without the seasoning as I don't like spicy food and read the reviews before hand, so left it off my portion, so I found it very tasty and fresh

Richard - Jun 02, 2019

Lovely change. Salsa has an unexpected kick.

Zoe - Jun 02, 2019

This is a well put together meal. Everything complements everything else. Only criticism is that the shopping list doesn’t detail sweet corn which is shown in the picture and I think the sweet corn adds to the meal and should be included in the shopping list

Drew - May 31, 2019

It looked lovely and to begin with the flavours were beautiful. However, the salsa was so hot and eventually destroyed all the other flavours.

Bianca - May 30, 2019

Elaine - May 20, 2019

This dish is amazing!! So so tasty. I decided to include sweet corn (as per the picture) even though it’s not listed on the ingredients and it went really well with it. Such a filling meal as well and super easy to prepare - very little effort required. I would recommend allowing more than 20 minutes cooking time for your chicken though.

Karolina - May 18, 2019

Spicy guacamole mix, but great dish overall

Jane - May 17, 2019

Chicken and peppers quite nice. The salsa was inedible so unbelievably hot!!! I threw it away.
