Easy but awesome – that describes this baked dish best of all. This unique creation features crepes with a Mexican filling.
A flavourful and succulent cottage cheese mixture joins hands with chunky uncooked salsa and mealy refried beans to make a fabulous filling for the crepes.
Simple ingredients are mixed and matched to give a classic, memorable flavour. The cheesy mouth-feel and herby aroma of the Crepes Mexicana are sure to etch a lasting memory. Serve this baked dish hot and fresh with a crunchy garnish of spring onion greens.
