5. IT'S CHILLI, NOT CHILLY!

With winter setting in and temperatures plummeting across the island of Ireland, South Africans are gearing up for summer and getting ready to hit the beach this Christmas. To honour their homeland, Nando’s has created the Mzansi Christmas Burger which delivers a touch of South African heat and UK festive cheer to Nando’s restaurants across the Christmas period.  The Mzansi Christmas Burger is inspired by traditional Christmas flavours mixed with some South African heat. The word ‘Mzansi’ is a popular slang word for South Africa in the Xhosa language (one of 11 official languages of South Africa.  Mixing festive favourites and African heat the burger features a PERi-PERi chicken breast fillet and flame grilled thigh, with mushroom and chestnut pâté, cranberry sauce, festive slaw and crispy onions.  Nando’s is joining the fight against malaria by helping combat the spread of the deadly disease in Mozambique, the birth place of PERi-PERi. Nando’s has launched a limited edition six pack of its PERi-PERi sauces with all profits going towards the cause.
