Requesón is a deliciously salty, spreadable Mexican cheese (imagine a more acidic, creamier version of ricotta) which is taken to a whole new level when combined with our zingy garlic and coriander Herdez Mexico City Taco Kit.

    INGREDIENTS

    • Herdez Mexico City Taco Kit

     

    For the homemade requesón (or substitute for a 500g ricotta):

    • 1L full-fat milk
    • 240ml tub buttermilk
    • 2 tsp lime juice 

     

    For the tacos:

    • 2 small ripe avocados
    • 250g cherry tomatoes, sliced
    • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
    • Lime juice, to taste
    • Salt and pepper, to taste
    • Freshly chopped coriander, to garnish

     

    METHOD

    1. For the homemade requesón: pour the milk into a heatproof bowl, add the buttermilk and lime juice and set over a pan of barely simmering water. Heat for around 10 minutes - or until the mixture curdles. Strain through a cheesecloth (or J-cloth) lined sieve set over a bowl and leave to drain for 1 hour. Spoon into a bowl, cover with cling film and chill until ready to use. 
    2. For the tacos: heat the Tacos according to packet instructions. Prepare the avocado into thin slices.
    3. Add a generous amount of requesón (or ricotta) to a warm taco and spread in an even layer, top with tomatoes, thinly sliced avocado, spring onions and lime juice. Sprinkle with Herdez Classic Tacos Seasoning, to taste (see Tip). Garnish with coriander and drizzle with the Salsa Casera, wrap and enjoy! 

     

    Herdez Tip - adjust the amount of Herdez Classic Tacos Seasoning to suit your taste and whether you prefer a subtler or bolder flavour.
