At Flip Flops City HQ I’ve recently been cooking up some ridiculously spicy and random Mexican fusion dishes. It’s been a gradual process of refining my choices from the ‘random pot of stuff to chuck in’ range but now I’m fairly confident I’ve got it down to a tee.
So as such, and in the spirit of good will to all flip flops lovers, here is the recipe for what I like to call ‘hot stuff in a pan and thing’:
2 onions (diced)
3 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
3 tins chopped tomatoes
2 diced chipotle chillies (available to buy online at www.casamexico.co.uk)
1 tub mince beef or veggie mince
2 corgettes (diced into absolutely undescribable minisculaty)
2 red peppers (again diced to the size of sand grains)
salt and pepper
1 red and 1 green chilli
2 blocks mozarella cheese
Place the whole aubergines onto an oven dish, set to 200 degrees and leave to roast for 20 minutes.
Place the diced onions, garlic, peppers, chillies and corgettes into an oil heated wok and slowly brown all. In a separate wok fry the beed/veggie mince.
When both woks are done (everything is nicely browned but not burnt) chuck all contents into one of them then add the tins of tomatoes plus some tomato ketchup (3 healthy squeezes), Worcester sauce (shake till your wrist is nackered) and some salt and pepper. Mix it up nicely.
Now take the aubergines out of the oven, chop the heads off and now cut into slices. At this point they may very well disintegrate but fear not. Just chop them to shreads and place in the now over flowing wok. Mix it up nicely.
Now slice up the mozzarella cheese into thin strips and mix into content of the wok.
Take an oven dish and poor all this lovely mess into it. Find a cheese grater and slowly grate the brown bread crust over the top of the dish so everything is nicely covered in a thin layer of breadcrumbs.
Open oven door, place massive dish in middle of oven, drop the temperature to 160, go and get yourself a beer and relax for 20 or so minutes.
When the bread crumbs are nice and brown you’re good to go. Take out of the oven and try not to drop dish all over the floor after burning left wrist on oven door (1st attempt memories).
Spoon contents into waiting plates/bowls and feed to family. Can be served with pasta or rice and a nice cold beer.
