So easy, so good! I was a bit sceptical at first, as the inside sauce and outside sauce was the same (difference is with sour cream inside) but wow, was I impressed once this was all baked up! Such a quick meal idea, served with rice is a winner. Tip: cover all the taco with sauce if you don’t like it too crispy at the ends. Also works well with regular fajita wraps.
