7 Mexican-inspired recipes to make your week more exciting

Get your taco fix for breakfast (chilaquiles!), in a lunchbox (enchilada leftovers!) or supper any night of the week with Abigail Donnelly’s build-your-own recipes.

1. Cauliflower tacos

Forget Taco Tuesday, you can have these beauties any day of the week. They’re meat-free, wheat and gluten-free and big on flavour. The secret? Salsa macha! This rich oil is a versatile condiment that you’ll want to put on everything!

3. Adobo nacho tray bake

Nachos for dinner are always going to go down well. This recipe uses a versatile and hearty chilli con carne that is a staple in Abigail’s home. Make a double batch of the chilli con carne and freeze half to use for another dinner.

5. Cheese-and-corn quesadilla

This is one of those recipes that require minimal effort but has big results. You just need 15 minutes prep time, but the coriander jalapeño pesto will make it feel like you’ve been prepping for ages to make something fancy.

6. Chicken tortillas

Pico de gallo takes these chicken tortillas from good to great. They’re diary-free, but you can add cheese sauce if you like. This filling is also great in corn taco shells.
