Product review: Flava-It Ghost Chilli Marinade

wp-1462006358603.jpgFlava-It Ghost Chilli Marinade is a dry marinade that can be added to all meats, but is particularly well-suited to marinading chicken and veg for fajitas! When I saw ‘Ghost chilli’ I was slightly worried the marinade would be too hot for anyone else eating my fajitas, but as the packet says, this family owned British business are “confident everyone and their nan will love it.”

Easy to use, simply place your ingredients in a bowl, cover and coat with the marinade and leave for 10 minutes. Then bake, grill, BBQ or stir-fry. Usually I can tell how hot something is just by cooking it but this had a surprisingly subtle chilli scent to it. Combined with the aromas of the frying chicken and peppers, my appetite was well and truly ready for fajitas. The colour was was more a pale orange than a fiery red which I suspect is a lot more inviting for someone who isn’t a practiced chilli head like us.

The result was eight mouthwatering wraps that pack a punch. You’ll need the sour cream close to hand to cool off but the flavour and spice was all there.

You can purchase Flava-It Ghost Chilli Marinade from Tesco for 99p.


Serves 3-4

  • 2 large chicken breast, sliced
  • 2 bell peppers, deseeded and sliced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 sachet of Flava-It Ghost Chilli Marinade
  • 8 wraps
  • Sour cream, salsa and guacamole to serve

Put the chicken, bell peppers and onion in a bowl. Coat in the marinade and leave for 10 minutes.


Heat some oil in a wok and add the chicken and veg mixture. Stir fry until cooked through (will take about 10 minutes).


Warm up the wraps in the microwave then serve with the filling and sauces. Enjoy!
