TACO LETTUCE CUPS
COOKBOOK: Woolworths - Fresh Mag November 2020
So easy to make as a light lunch that will keep everyone satisfied.
Tacos without the tacos sounds super healthy to me. For those missing the real tacos , place a bowl filled with nachos in the centre of the table for extra Mexican flavour.
I loved everything about this recipe. I can see how it can be served on a grander scale along with extra dishes or just on its own on a lazy summer’s night.
