Mexican Mash

Make on Fresco
Serves 4 Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 40 minutes   Rated:

Mexican Mash makes for seriously good eating. I think it could be a lazy mum’s main dish (admitting nothing here), but I also think it would be absolutely amazing alongside a rack of barbecued ribs, or some slow-cooked pulled pork. But don’t take my word for it, get your mash on!
