I am yet to meet anyone who doesn’t like Nando’s. Fact! I mean, what’s not to like? The tasty chicken, which, let’s face it, tastes better the hotter you go! The PERi-PERi chips or spicy rice? Not for every day, but what’s life without a treat every now and then.

Now, you can make your own Nando’s recipes in the comfort of your own kitchen. This week, we share their version of a delicious frittata. Baked in the oven, loaded with chorizo and infused with PERi-PERi. Quick, tasty and impressive. What’s not to like?

We’d love to see how you get on, so send in pics of your efforts to info@melanmag.com and we’ll feature on our social media.

Dish of the week: Mini Chorizo and PERi-PERi Frittatas


  • 90ml PERi-PERi sauce (choose your flavour)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 medium eggs, beaten
  • 120g diced chorizo
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 100g frozen peas
  • A bunch of freshly chopped flat leaf parsley



Preheat oven to 160°c fan and preheat frying pan over a medium high heat.

Whisk the eggs with PERi-PERi sauce in a bowl.

Add oil to the pan and cook the chorizo for 3-4 minutes. Add red onion and peppers and cook for 5 minutes, then add peas and cook for another 2 minutes. Finish off by adding parsley.

Spoon the veg mix into the muffin tray, divide into 10 muffins, top with egg mix and place in the oven for 12-15 minutes.

Remove from the oven and serve with salad. Weekday lunch sorted!
