Taco Fold Overs

ᛎ Jump to recipe

The week that I created this flavour bomb I was still in “use up what I have in the fridge mode” and I have to say that this was probably one of the best and most simple taco’s I have made (famous words of husband). Any way they are too good not to try. I hope you love them as much as we loved demolishing them.
