Tommi's quest to find the perfect quesadilla leads her from the ancient pyramids of Monte Alban to the mountain town of Santo Tomás Jalieza, where three generations of women have been following the same recipe since they were girls. Then, back at home in her kitchen, Tommi shows us her simple twists on the classic: a quesadilla with chorizo and good old-fashioned spud.

After discovering why Mexicans take breakfast so seriously, Tommi makes her own spicy fried egg with hot chilli-tomato sauce, before later heading to a bustling market to seek inspiration for a punchy, tequila-laced dessert.

    The Cardenal, I've been there many times and if you ever go to Mexico have breakfast or lunch, they don't do dinner, it's amazing, service, food everything, they make fresh tortillas and sweet bread, I love it. The twists Tommi does to Mexican food are rubbish, sugar in a salsa? The plum, mango and strawberries with tequila, that's not Mexican, go to Mexico!! You won't regret it!
