02 Sep Santa Maria Products
Santa Maria is the relaunched name of Discovery Foods, the familiar brand known for its fajita kits, tortilla wraps and Mexican condiments. I am huge fan of fajitas and have used many different fajita kits when cooking, so was very happy to review the Santa Maria products.
I cooked a meal using the Santa Maria Fajita seasoning mix, hot salsa, 8 soft tortillas, soured cream topping and guacamole dip seasoning mix. The meal I made was extremely delicious. The Fajita seasoning mix was hotter than some other mixes I have tried previously but was definitely the best tasting mix I have ever used. The tortillas were also very soft, which made wrapping the fajitas easy and added to the great taste. The salsa, soured cream topping and guacamole dip seasoning mix were delicious accompaniments to the meal. I thoroughly enjoyed the meal and so did my partner. We will definitely be purchasing the Santa Maria fajita mix and Mexican condiments again. A big thumbs up.
I also tried some of the Santa Maria spices that are available in their product range. These spices are packaged in grinders which make them very easy and convenient to use. I tried the Chilli Explosion flavour, the Seafood and Fish flavour and the Pizza and Pasta flavour.
I used the Chilli Explosion spices on meat that I cooked in the oven and found it gave a little ‘kick’ to the flavour of the meat which was very tasty. I also tried it on scrambled egg because I sometimes find egg a bit bland, so wanted to see if it added flavour to the egg. It definitely did and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I also used the Pizza and Pasta spices in my homemade tomato pasta sauce and again it added a lovely flavour to my meal. The Seafood and Fish spices also added a lovely flavour to oven baked cod. I am looking forward to trying these spices on other fish dishes now.
The Santa Maria products that I tried were extremely tasty and I will definitely use them again. I am also looking forward to trying some of their other products.
