This is an oldie but a goldie and we have revamped it, taken a new pic and happy days, fixed a couple of things to make it fresh and better. It was a huge hit with the team, we are all still talking about it and hoping we may have to make it again for some reason.
The little taco bowls are kind of cute and a bit fun to make. Ideally you would have several on the go at once in the oven, we only had two dishes that we could use that were the same size. You could go larger of course. Just serves less people. These were quite small in size, but once they were loaded up we thought they were about right for a light lunch and if you have hungry peeps, they can have two!
I hope you make them. The kids will love them!
