These scrumptious and filling tacos are chock-full of crunchy veggies, cottage cheese and corn, all drowned in a flavour-packed green sauce.
The green sauce, made of capsicum and milk has a buttery, luscious mouth-feel and pleasantly spicy taste. The veggies stuffed into the Corn and Cottage Cheese Tacos, on the other hand, give you a variety of exciting textures.
Overall, it’s an awesome snack with the best of everything – taste, texture and aroma. The green sauce tends to thicken over time, so adjust the consistency before using it by adding a little milk and heating it.
