These fin­ger-lick­ing good, but­ter milk mar­i­nated, oven-baked nibbles are coated with corn chips. The ac­com­pa­ny­ing may­on­naise is also de­li­cious in tacos with the pork belly (page 128).

Serves 6-8 as part of a shared meal * Chipotle in adobo are dried, smoked jalapenos in a tangy, sweet-sour red sauce. The La Morena brand is avail­able in many su­per­mar­kets. Left­overs from the tin will keep for weeks in the fridge or can be frozen. Use them in any dish that would ben­e­fit from some deeply flavoured smok­i­ness.
