How to make it

  1. Cook the chorizo in a hot frying pan for 5 minutes until it begins to go brown.
  2. Lower the heat to medium, add the onion and cook for about 10 minutes until it is nice and soft. Remove a spoonful of the mixture for sprinkling on top later on.
  3. Add the sweetcorn and the chopped coriander stalks. Continue to cook for another 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, mix the flour, Parmesan, baking powder, Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste, lime zest and a little salt. Stir in the egg, milk and oil until it forms a thick batter.
  5. Stir in the fried chorizo. Reserve a few coriander leaves and stir the rest into the pan.
  6. Heat the vegetable oil and butter. Spoon a ladle full of the mixture into the hot pan and cook until golden.
  7. Continue until all the mixture is cooked and you have a stack of pancakes.
  8. Stir the reserved coriander into the crème fraîche. Finely chop the reserved chorizo/onion mix and sprinkle over the crème fraîche. Serve with wedges of lime.
