Essential Ingredients in the Mexican Kitchen

Before diving into the recipe, let's appreciate the core ingredients that make Mexican cuisine uniquely delightful. Spices such as paprika, cumin, and oregano are the backbone of many Mexican dishes, offering warmth and depth. Garlic powder adds that essential kick, enhancing the overall flavour profile. Fresh produce like onions, tomatoes, and coriander (cilantro) bring brightness and freshness, balancing the richness of the spices. The acidity from lime juice cuts through the fat and richness, adding a zesty finish that is unmistakably Mexican. Avocado, transformed into the beloved guacamole, adds creaminess and a luxurious texture that complements the spiciness of the dishes. These ingredients, while simple, come together to create a symphony of flavours that define Mexican cuisine.

    Slice your chicken and mix all the spices together. Season the chicken slices with this mix, reserving 1/2 teaspoon for the guacamole.

  4. Cook the Chicken:

    In a pan with a bit of cooking oil, cook the seasoned chicken until golden. Remember to season with salt as needed.
