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"!

Our 25 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Season the chicken

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. 

    Marinate the chicken with the ANCHO CHILLI RUB and keep aside for 1 min to let the flavours sink in.

  • 2.

    Prep the peppers

    Toss the peppers with 1 tbsp oil and the GRILLED PEPPER MIX on a baking tray. Make some room and put the chicken fillets on the same tray, and then cook both in the oven for 20 mins. 

  • 3.

    Make the salsa

    Mix the avocado, tomatoes and onion in a small bowl with the CILANTRO SALSA BLEND. Keep aside.

    Dress the salad

    When the chicken is almost done, lightly dress the salad leaves and any other salad items you're having with a little olive oil and salt and pepper and serve into bowls. 

  • 5.


    Slice the chicken and arrange on top of each portion along with the peppers. Serve the salsa alongside.

Jonathan - Nov 27, 2018

Disappointing. Far too much pepper seasoning, salsa was just too much onion and spice. Chicken rub nice though.

This was lovely, had an almost sweet/sour taste with a bit of a chilli kick. I didn't make the salad, had it with rice. Definitely recommend.

Absolutely amazing!

Tannya - Nov 16, 2018

Thanks for creating such a fresh and healthy option!

Lauren - Nov 13, 2018

It was nice. Super easy to do. I gave it 4 stars because it’s not the most exciting dish, but still very tasty

Natalie - Nov 11, 2018

So nice I’ve ordered it again straight away!

Gavin - Nov 10, 2018

A superb salad with hot chicken and peppers, plus a salsa side. So many flavours to this dish, it was gorgeous.

Pauline - Nov 06, 2018

Tasty Chicken, peppers were a little dry but nice flavour I'll add a little more oil next time. Also I wouldn't use as much salsa dressing, it was really lovely but too hot for my taste

Maxine - Nov 05, 2018

Great taste

Sarah - Nov 05, 2018

Good flavours

Jane - Nov 05, 2018

Really disappointing. The main flavour on the pepper was ground pepper and the chicken was bland. The best bit was the salsa.

Abi - Nov 04, 2018

So much tastier than I expected it to be! So flavourful!

Lovely flavours. Salsa is hot but really nice. Very easy to make.

Lara - Oct 22, 2018

Very fresh and clean!

Mahiyar - Oct 22, 2018

A very fresh-tasting and flavoursome dish which is certainly greater than the sum of its (fairly basic) parts! We added some left-over wild rice to the sweetcorn, and that worked well as an extra accompaniment. Will definitely be having this again, but be careful with the Cilantro salsa blend - it does pack quite a kick!

Matthew - Oct 21, 2018

Tasty ???? even better with ranch or ceaser dressing

Katy - Oct 19, 2018
