Ingredients

  • 200g wensleydale, cubed
  • 1 fat chilli, deseeded, one half sliced into 3 long strips, and the other half chopped
  • 2-3 marjoram/oregano sprigs or basil leaves
  • ½ tsp coriander seeds
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds
  •  ½ tsp red bell pepper flakes (or chilli flakes for a bit of heat)
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • 200-250ml extra-virgin olive oil

To serve

  • 15 small corn tortillas (or use a cutter to stamp them out from 3-4 large tortillas)
  • Olive oil for frying
  • 1 large ripe avocado, sliced
  • 1 lime, halved, plus wedges
  • 1 small red onion, sliced

You’ll also need

  • Sterilised 400ml jam jar with a screw-top lid

Method

  1. Put the cheese in the jar, tuck in the chilli strips and herb sprigs, then add the spices, chopped chilli and dried oregano. Pour in enough oil to cover the cheese. Tap the jar on the work surface to eliminate any air bubbles, then screw on the lid and turn the jar to mix the oil and flavourings. Set aside in a cool place like a pantry or the fridge for 3-7 days to marinate.
  2. To serve, fry the tortillas in a non-stick pan with a little oil, then set aside on kitchen paper to drain. Top each with a slice or two of avocado, crushed with a fork and seasoned with salt and a squeeze of lime juice. Add some cheese and sliced red onion, then drizzle with a little oil from the jar and serve with lime wedges. Use the remaining cheese in salads or stir into rice or pasta.
