jumbo chilli dip


This is my first Nigella recipe! I've always loved her presence but have never watched her tv show until recently (I just assumed that I wouldn't be able to handle the meat imagery). The shows I've seen haven't been too full on - she always cooks one dessert and vegetarian offering so I can get around it.

This is EASY AS. Though I did find it's missing something, it's missing a bit of weight. I think next time I make it I'm going to add half a cup of pine nuts. It's really lovely and refreshing on a hot day.

I'm making tacos this week and think this will be a perfect hot sauce for them. I'm also thinking a little dark rum wouldn't go astray and you could use it as a marinade.

3 birds eye chillis
1 lime (juice and zest)
2 garlic cloves

    1. hi grazi! The google translation of your website is very funny (as I'm sure is mine!)

  2. Hi,

    I love your blog, but rarely remember to visit - is there any way I can subscribe through the google reader or similar? I know I can get feeds, but this isn't very efficient given the number of computers I work from.



    1. Hi Georgia,

      You can just copy and paste my link into google reader.

      Go to reader>hit subscribe> enter my link.

      I have shortened what is published in RSS feeds as I want to drive traffic directly to my website but you will at least see when I have posted and be reminded!

      Thanks for asking. Carla

    2. thanks for dealing with my technological ineptness, Carla! :)
