Spring Tacos with Mushrooms Recipe
25 May 2017 | 7:30 am

We have been experimenting with Tacos this month, to be served as evening food for a wedding couple with a Mexican connection. This traditional Mexican dish is composed of a corn or wheat tortilla folded or rolled around a filling. A taco can be made with a variety of fillings, including beef, pork, chicken, seafood, vegetables, and cheese, allowing for great versatility and variety.
