Allegra McEvedy creates the perfect Mexican brunch in episode 9 of Perfect.
For the red pepper salsa::
Char the skins of the pepper, chillies and tomatoes in any of the following ways: on a barbecue or a griddle on a high flame or cut everything in half and whack them under the grill.
Keep turning until most of the skin is blackened and blistered. Set aside to cool.
Roughly peel the pepper, chillies and tomatoes, leaving on a little bit of charred skin and keeping the seeds in the chillies.
Give the peppers a quick squeeze to get rid of some of the liquid, and then blitz them in the food processor and pour into a mixing bowl.
Stir in the spring onion, coriander, garlic and lime juice, season well with salt and transfer to a colourful serving bowl.
For the refried beans::
First blitz the beans to a puree using some of the liquid from the tin to bring it together
Fry the onions in the oil and butter, then once they’ve softened stir in the garlic, chilli, coriander and coriander seeds.
Continue to fry for a couple of minutes, then stir in the blitzed beans with the rest of the liquid from the tin.
Bring to a simmer, season extensively then turn the heat right down
Allow it to keep bubbling, making sure it doesn’t catch on the bottom until it’s become a very thick puree
Serve with the pumpkin seeds on top.
For the Oaxaca juice::
Juice all together.
Preheat the oven to 180ºC/356ºF.
Find a small ovenproof dish (I use a round one of 20 cm diameter with a depth of 6 cm) and cover the bottom with about a third of the tortilla chips, then cover that with about a third of the salsa, then about a third of the ricotta. Repeat twice, not worrying about making perfect layers but just aiming to distribute the ingredients quite roughly. Cover the dish with a lid or foil and bake for 10 minutes. Fry the eggs in butter and lay them on top of the dish.
Scatter on the chopped coriander, and finish with a bit of sea salt and a splash of extra virgin. Serve with refried beans and Oaxaca juice.
• If you have a gas stove, try roasting them directly over an open flame on the stovetop. Don't be overly concerned that the skins look very charred. The outer skin may look burned but the flesh beneath will be succulent and keep its usual color. Of the sweet bell peppers, red and orange seem to offer the tastiest results but spicier peppers like the poblano, serrano or jalapeno also respond very well to roasting.
• Make sure that your kitchen is well ventilated, especially if you're charring peppers directly over an open flame. Don't wash the freshly roasted peppers; this will wash away some of the flavour.

The term health indicates different things to different people, based on the scenario. If somebody says "I was concerned about my husband's health when he risen Mt. Everest", it is obvious that the lady is making reference to her husband's physical health, probably his center, skin (frostbite) and chance of creating hypothermia (when the body's heat range falls too low. On the other hand, if you listen to the term "With all these work deadlines, demonstrations and working saturdays and sundays, I wonder what the impact will be on her health," most likely the term "health" relates more to psychological wellness than wellness (although the two are often linked). The terms "health" or "healthy" can also be used in non-medical situations with the help of [url=http://www.stressfreemanagement.com.au/]Stress Management[/url].
