BUSY chefs are just one step away from creating tasty Tex Mex dishes, thanks to KNORR Americas sauces.
With the new KNORR Fajita Sauce added to the range, chefs can now create a delicious range of fajitas in minutes.
The reformulated, prepared sauces - including Sweet Hickory BBQ, Salsa, Chilli, Cajun and the new Fajita sauce - can be poured over prepared meat, fish or vegetables and cooked to create a mouth-watering meal in minutes
The five KNORR Americas sauces are so versatile that they can be used to make a delicious range of dishes, from fajitas, nachos, chilli, burritos, potato skins, Cajun chicken, sweet hickory BBQ ribs and many, many more.
Laurence Smith, category marketing director, Unilever Foodsolutions, said: “Consumers are becoming increasingly more adventurous with their food choices out of home, with 23 per cent of consumers eating Mexican/Tex Mex food nowadays.
"Caterers can easily maximise on this increased popularity and revenue potential by adding KNORR Americas prepared sauces to their menus.
“With the smoking ban now in place, many families are dining out more, increasing potential for all day dining.
"Tex Mex is the ideal food to offer families, with its choice of flavours, variety of portion sizes, opportunities for sharing and best of all the chance to really get your hands stuck in and interact with the food.
"By serving Fajitas on a sizzling hot platter, caterers can draw extra attention to their Tex Mex dishes, creating the theatre and excitement traditionally associated with this Southern American cuisine.”
