Jenny, says:

“This delicious Mexican taco recipe is easy to make. It's stacked full of flavour from the base of onions, celery, carrots, garlic and chilli through to the pops of sweetness from the sweetcorn and pineapple. This family-friendly recipe is fun to eat as you have to make up your own tacos with additions - sour cream, guacamole, salsa and cheese.”
