Oh I do love a crispy taco. It’s like a giant tasty crisp with scrumptious filling.
Tacos make the perfect street food as they fit perfectly in your hand, Many years ago I lived for a short while in Texas. Fast food meant tacos , breakfast meant tacos, home cooking meant tacos. we ate them all the time and I never grew tired of them,
As a family of vegetarians quorn is a staple in our diet and quorn tacos are a much loved family favourite.
