Celebrate Cinco de Mayo Mexican Cookery with Discovery

Making Fajitas for Cinco de Mayo 

Cinco de Mayo is a celebration held on May 5th, that commemorates the Mexican Army's victory over the French forces at the Battle of Peubla in 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragova Seguin.  The celebration recognises Mexican heritage and pride.

What better way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo than by having a delicious Mexican meal courtesy of Discovery's range of authentic Mexican ingredients.

I was sent a box full of Discovery goodies including their brand new Preservative Free Tortillas to try out in honour of Cinco de Mayo.  It contained everything needed to make Fajitas:

Salsa (mild, medium and hot)
Sour Cream
Fajita Table Sauce
Fajita Seasoning (medium)
Fajita Paste (mild and hot)

All I needed to add were the peppers, onions, mushrooms and Quorn pieces to create fabulous veggie fajitas.

I used the Mild Fajita Paste to season the veggie mix that I flash fried.  The Preservative Free Tortilla were the softest most pliable wraps I've ever used.  Discovery definitely has the recipe perfected.  They can be heated in just 8 seconds in a microwave.

The seasoning was deliciously mild but very tasty with a smoky flavour.  The paste bound the veggie mix together.

Ella tucked in, adding the hot Salsa and Table Sauce to add a spicy kick to her Fajitas.  She said they were "super nommy!"  (Teen speak for delicious!!)

Kizzy liked her Fajita smothered in the creamy Sour Cream topping which was lovely.  She loves putting her own wraps together and said "It is fun and easy to do.  They are really yummy!"

We thoroughly enjoyed our Cinco de Mayo feast thanks to Discovery.  Mexican food is one of our favourite choices and we were all very impressed by Discovery's products.  Ian called the range of sauces, toppings and salsas "condiment heaven!"  The Preservative Free Tortilla were the best I've ever used.  They didn't stick together, were very pliable and tasted good...perfect for wrapping up a delicious Fajita.  It is such a fun menu choice.

The Discovery website includes a great Vegetarian recipe section and a fun kids' Make and Play section so you can have your own Mexican Family Fiesta!  You can buy the full range online.  Stockists include most major supermarkets including Asda, Sainsbury's, Tesco and Morisson's.

The preservative free wraps are available in Sainsbury's for £1.59.
