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.
A confit, as the name suggests, is a kind of sauce reduced to a concentrated, jam-like consistency. This one is a good accompaniment for all kinds of things at Christmas, as it keeps well in the fridge for four weeks.

If you're cooking for vegetarians, these wonderful kebabs will go down a storm. The halloumi cheese is firm enough to withstand grilling, and combines beautifully with the other flavours in this recipe.
Salsa has the advantage of being a salad, sauce and relish all in one. There's no fat or sugar in it, and the flavour's wonderful. The chillies are not too hot, so if you'd like a little more kick to this you can add a few drops of Tabasco
