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.

    Make the salsa

    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.

very tasty, we went free style on the salad accompaniments - for e.g. I added a spoon or two of pulled pork to the dish. Very nice and very healthy
