Mexican Enchiladas with Cheese

What are enchiladas? Well, they're Mexican wheat-flour pancakes that can be spread with some spicy salsa and stuffed with almost anything you have handy – in this case cheese – and then baked. An excellent light lunch dish served with a salad.

Surely one of the nation's most popular family supper dishes, chilli con carne is a spicy treat, especially if you make Delia's version, with lime, coriander and black beans.

This Mexican recipe is rather like hummus, but with added zing from limes and chillies. Serve it with flatbreads or salad as a dip, starter or light lunch.

Cincinnati 5-ways ChilliServes 4

Cincinnati 5-ways Chilli

A truly authentic chilli con carne, this, with the classic accompaniments of pinto beans, grated cheese, raw onion, saltine crackers and soured cream. A lovely cheat recipe, Delia makes it with steak, rather than mince, for a better texture.
