A new range inspired by chain restaurant Chiquito has arrived at Iceland this week, and plenty of Tex-Mex food lovers already seem really keen to try it out.
For some, January is a long and dreary month that lends itself to consuming comfort food in any way they can get it, which is why it’s a good job leading frozen food supermarket retailer Iceland has teamed up with popular Tex-Mex chain restaurant Chiquito to unveil a new range that’s exclusively available online and in stores up and down the UK.
There’s a whopping 16 products making up the new range, with everything from nacho cheese bites, habanero chicken wings, burrito bowls, and churros on the menu to try.
Iceland and Chiquito says the aim of its collaboration is to “spice up family meals”.
Hyping up the new range on its website, Iceland says: “What better way to start your evening than by sharing a bowl of delicious halloumi fries and nacho bites? You’ll have everyone rushing to the table, and eager for more.
“For the main event, choose from all your favourite Mexican classics, from enchiladas and chicken wings, to burritos and skewers – perfect when paired with our selection of sides and tortilla chips. Vegan? We’ve got you covered with our delicious vegan burrito bowl.
“And of course, because no Mexican dinner is complete without the sweet taste of cinnamon churros, we’ve got them too.”
The products making up the new range are:
Chiquito Creamed Corn (£2)
Chiquito Jalapeno Cheese Dip (£2)
Chiquito Sunshine Rice (£2)
Chiquito Pulled Pork Burrito Bowl (£4)
Chiquito Beef Burrito Bowl (£4)
Chiquito Nacho Chilli Chicken Lasagne (£3)
Chiquito Halloumi Fries (£4)
Chiquito Nacho Bites (£2.50)
Chiquito Piri Piri Half Chicken (£6)
Chiquito Mexican Mega Skewers (£6)
Chiquito Peri Peri Fries (£2)
Chiquito Habanero Chicken Wings (£3)
Chiquito Plain Tortilla Wraps (£1.50)
Chiquito Sweet Chilli Tortilla Wraps (£1.50)
Each product in the range is priced at under £6 too, so you won’t need to break the bank too much for your next indulgence.
As well as the items in Iceland stores across the country and online, there’s also a couple of products in the range that are exclusive to The Food Warehouse in store too, so you can get the Fiery Chicken Burrito Bowl (£4), and the Fiery Mexican Chicken (£3).
If you are planning on heading to your nearest Iceland branch to see if you can get your hands on some of these new Tex-Mex delights, then you can check the opening times via the Store Finder here.
And that’s just part of the first wave of celebrity contestants – more famous faces will take part in I’m A Celebrity… South Africa, entering the camp as the series goes on.
The new series will ‘push them to their limits and test them like never before’, ITV has said, promising bigger and tougher challenges and an even harsher environment.
Also taking part from the launch episode will be Diversity star Jordan Banjo, TV presenter Carol Vorderman, Olympian Fatima Whitbread, former royal butler Paul Burrell, ex-England cricketer Phil Tufnell, and supermodel Janice Dickinson.
ITV said: “Whilst nodding back to the Australian jungle, I’m A Celebrity…South Africa is a uniquely different series so viewers can look forward to lots of unexpected twists and turns.”
The trailer also shows the celebs taking part in pre-recorded challenges, taking on everything from nasty food to terrifying heights.
I’m A Celebrity… South Africa will air on ITV1 and ITVX from April 2023.

Commentator Arlo White shows off what the Old Trafford gantry walk looks like
Ever wondered what it’s like to be up in the gantry in a football stadium, say, Old Trafford? Well, we certainly have.
You see the odd shot of the commentators sat there on the telly from time to time but it never really gives much away either and, at some venues, it’s quite a ways up there. There’s a little bit of allure behind these mysterious parts of footy grounds that most fans will never get to see.
After hours of mindless scrolling on the social media app, we stumbled across the well-known sports commentator‘s channel where he’s been showing off what it’s like to go in the gantry and one of them is his long walk to crow’s nest up at the Theatre of Dreams.
As it turns out, Arlo’s been doing these videos for a couple of years now, revealing how the gantry looks not only at Old Trafford but other big Premier League grounds too, such as down the road at the Etihad, Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, Tottenham Hotspurs’ sparkly new ground and many more.
Another reason we found ourselves stuck on his TikTok for so long was also because of the other behind-the-scenes details he reveals too, even shedding light on how he prepares for games: note-taking, data sheets, how keeps himself warm up there during those cold nights on comms and so on.
