Now that the Rugby World Cup is over normal services can resume! Yep for those who didn't know "My names Doll and I'm a rugger gal" .. altogether now.. "Hi Doll!" So for the last 6 weeks or so I've made arch enemies of the English, Italians, Scots, Russians and many many more.. for those 80 mins on the field! Still its all over now and we're all friends again.. see where I'm going with this one..
Today, amigos, we're going mexican! I LOVE mexican food.. burritos, tacos, nachos.. I could drool forever but the "cheese factor" and the "sour cream factor" SIGH! and I've found some great recipes for Guacamole which I've added here that have ALL the flavour but are ProPoint friendly!
First up the recipes -
On the WW UK site there is a yummy version of Mexican Soup! just try it!!! its delicious! > HERE
For guacamole I've found two recipes that hit the spot...
One again from the WW UK site > HERE
And the other from a blog I love.. > HERE it's SERIOUSLY full of flavour! NOM! NOM! NOM!
Tips when dining as a Mexican...
Sour Cream is LOADED with ProPoints, go for Creme Fraiche or natural yoghurt to give you that creamy fix... Don't be too heavy handed with the cheese.. there are lighter, low fat cheeses to use so if you're cooking, then you're shopping, so go lighter.. Lots of veggies are great for wraps and tacos so bulk up on the zero ProPoint stuff.. and .. I keep saying it.. SPICES.. adding all kinds of spices will give you your fix!
I've ProPointed the most popular brand in my local supermarket to give you an idea of what the values are.. enjoy amigos.. Doll x
