Nourishing Mexican Beef Bowl

(0 rating - rate this recipe)
A delicious and healthy deconstructed Mexican beef bowl, this recipe is sure to tick all the boxes. The mince packs the perfect flavour with just the right amount of spice. We love adding the coriander stalks to the mince for an extra depth of flavour. With a colourful mix of Summer veges, don’t hold back on adding any that need to be used up from your fridge.
