June 24, 2016
Sophie says: “I love spices and these tacos are a great flavour combination. They are also a fun way to get children involved in food as they can build their own Tacos, and make a really great addition to a BBQ too. The salsa is also a great healthy alternative to sugar-filled, shop-bought BBQ sauces and the chilli even gives your metabolism a boost.” Recipe by BerryWorld.
