If you don’t have the inclination to make your own tortillas, use your favourite shop-bought 15cm corn tortillas.

The advantage of a small bird is that there’s no argument of who is having the drum or breast, just plenty of meat and finger-licking goodness without much of a fuss. The pancetta and mascarpone provide richness and also help provide a sauce for the birds.
For a different twist on hummus try this lentil version. Lentils are quicker to cook, though they don’t have the nuttiness of chickpeas, so load the top with well-roasted additions such as eggplant. If you just want to serve the hummus plain, I suggest giving it that flavour boost by roasting the eggplant and garlic and adding them to the lentils when you blend.
For an extra special, creamy hummus, I like to peel the skin from the cooked chickpeas. It’s an arduous task which can take an hour, but you’ll be amazed at the results.
