This quick and easy Mexican-Style Mince is super versatile and can be paired with rice, tacos, or wedges to name a few. We've given the recipe a delicious twist by including a 50/50 mince and mushroom blend, making it a healthy recipe for the whole family.

This is a fantastic way to get kids to eat more veggies – once they are grated into the mince they virtually disappear.
