Discovery Mexican Food Range

I was recently sent some of Discovery’s new Garlic & Herb Tortillas and Crispy Crumb Coating to try.  They are really tasty, and extremely versatile – perfect for a casual night in with friends, a light afternoon lunch or a quick family meal after work.


Garlic and Herb Tortilla

The new Garlic & Herb variety of tortilla is as soft and delicious as the other Discovery tortillas I have tried, but has loads more flavour.  Great for school packed lunches, fajitas, slice them and bake them to make your own chips for dipping, they are so versatile.  The Garlic & Herb Tortillas also come with recipe suggestions on the back of the pack for those in need of a little Mexican inspiration in the kitchen.

The new Garlic & Herb Tortilla joins the range of Discovery Tortillas already available, including Preservative Free, Plain, Wholemeal, and Chilli & Jalapeno and they will be available in Sainsbury’s from 28th August 2011 with a RRP of £1.59.


Crispy Crumb Coating

To my delight the new Discovery Crispy Crumb Coating is gluten free.  All you do is mix the crumb coating with a little oil and then sprinkle it generously over chicken, vegetables or fish for a tasty light lunch or dinner.  You can even use it in place of Discovery’s Fajita Seasoning Mix to add a little variety to your fajitas. What’s more, the new Crispy Crumb coating is mild, which meant that the kids really liked it.  Discovery Crispy Crumb Coating is available in Sainsbury’s from 28th August 2011 with a RRP of £1.09.


So what did we think?
 
We used the tortillas and crumb coating to make chicken fajitas for a quick weeknight dinner.  Both were really tasty and we all thought they were delicious, my daughters were disappointed they couldn't have seconds.  The tortillas were flavoursome and nice and soft so you could stuff plenty of salad leaves & tomatoes in them along with the chicken before you rolled up the fajitas.  We'll definitely be using both the tortillas and crumb coating again as a really quick dinner solution.
 
You can check out the Discovery Foods website that has loads of recipes and product information, as well as buy their products online.
