    These were delicious! I left out the capsicum and added some taco seasoning while cooking for extra flavour then served with some light sour cream. They made a good lunch the next day too.

    Made this for 4, everyone really liked this. I added some chili flakes to spice it up a bit. Would definitely have this again.
