Chilli Relish

I’ve been putting this on everything. Eggs, steak, sandwiches, you name it. Pretty much anything savoury. The best thing about this recipe is that you probably have all the ingredients in your fridge right now.


-4 chillies of your choice (I used Serrano)- pickled or fresh
-1 medium sized onion
-2 cloves of garlic
-2 tablespoon vinegar
-1/3 red pepper
-3 red cocktail tomatoes


I used a chop chop but you can use a blender. Put altogether and blend!

Jalapeño Scramble

Before I start the story behind this meal, I have to get the pronunciation of this word out the way.

You order it at a restaurant and the waitress is like: “what? You mean ja-la-pe-no” and I’m like: “no, it’s ha-la-pe-no” I would like to say that a real Spanish speaking Mexican confirmed it so do not call it the former!

Breakfasts set the tone for the day so I do like to step it up when I have the time. Inspired by a restaurant meal where they underwhelmed this element, I, in true LadyVera fashion, decided to recreate the meal because I do happen to own a sauce company so there’s always an abundance of chillies just like pickled jalapeño.

And here’s how it turned out:
