Farrah’s Mexican Meal Kits- Ditch The Imported Mexican & Go Local.


This is not a sponsored post, this is me sharing my new find.

Sometimes you just have to buy something purely because it is on offer, that was how we first tried Farrah’s Mexican Meal Kits. Now we get them everytime we see them down to $5 a kit. They are a pantry staple and delicious. We wouldn’t go back to that other worldwide brand. They are made in NZ, not that far from us, in Upper Hutt.


Tonight we had Enchiladas and they were delicious. I did 6 enchiladas in total as there are only 3 of us. I am going to use the two remaining wraps for my lunch tomorrow.

If you see the kits, I seriously recommend stocking up. You will be pleasantly surprised. Even the teen enjoyed the meal and didn’t complain.




Chicken Mince Mexican lasagne


This is one of those tasty dinners and any left overs make a great left over lunch.

Chicken Mince Mexican lasagne.


Oven 180

Loose bottomed cake tin- size of your tortillas

Dash of canola oil

500g chicken mince (sure other would work fine)

Onion sliced

Clove garlic, chopped

1 tsp chili powder (less if you must)

1 tsp smoked paprika

1 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp cocoa powder

1 tin of tomatoes

1 tin (or 1 cup soaked and cooked) black beans drained

4 tortillas

1 c grated mozarella chees

Heat olive oil and add mince and onion, gently brown

Add garlic, spices and cocoa powder

Give a good mix and cook until onion and mince are cooked

Add tomatoes and drained black beans

Simmer with lid off for roughly 15- 20 minutes, stir occasionally

Remove from heat and allow to cool a little

place on of the tortillas in the cake tin

top with 1/2 of chicken mix

add another tortilla and top with the rest of the chicken mix

pop the last tortilla on the top

Sprinkle with cheese

Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden and filling is bubbling

Leave to cool for 5 minutes before serving




add some chilli,garlic and onions, cook until transparent. I also add some chilli powder, paprika, cumin and a bit of cocoa powder. 
Then just a tin of toms and a tin of black beans . 
It really does take a lot of the spice to flavour it. 
Layer the mince between tortillas. 
Top with salsa or chicken mix and some cheese.
Bake at 180 for about 20 mins.
I make it in a spring cake tin so it is easy to get out.
