Taco Time


IT'S TACO TIME

Who doesn't love a good ol' Mexican fiesta?!

Mexican definitely has to be one of my favourite types of food, and these little raw tacos are a top fav. Back in the days when I owned my cafe, these bad boys were a top seller. These raw tacos are a great way to have a nourishing and filling meal that leaves you feeling full but light at the same time. They are quick and easy to make and will be a hit with the whole fam. And I haven't even mentioned the best part yet... the main ingredient is some scraps that you would usually throw in the bin - but also an ingredient that even the keenest of eyes won't be able to recognise. Have I got you intrigued yet? Well keep scrolling because the recipe is right below...
