This was super tasty. We made up the blend with half the amount of chicken with some onion and pepper. I made some rice to go with it and served it with grated cheese wrapped up in homemade flatbreads (I used the chapati recipe from my curry legends cook book with a bit of paprika and cumin mixed in). 15 mins cooking for an awesome dinner. If all the taco legend dinners are going to be like this it is going to be a brilliant kit. I am excited in anticipation.

Lovely Mexican adobo blend. Can't wait for the new book in June. Accompanied with homemade salsa and citrus mayo cos I had no sour cream, and herby sautéed potatoes. 5/5.

I got this as a free sample with my curry legend spice blends order. I used this to make a side dish of potatoes to go with our usual chilli - The Spicery blend is so smoky and tasty! It made a fantastic side. I ordered the Taco Legend kit as soon as it was possible to do so and I cannot wait. I agree with the other reviewers: if this mix is a sign of what is to come, it will absolutely be as good as Curry Legend.
