Mexi Mince with Fresh Salsa

One of my absolute favourite cuisines has to be Mexican. This is a recipe I have handed out to friends and work colleagues time and time again and have always had rave reviews back. For a meal on its own (great for lunches) I add vegetables such as carrots, broccoli, asparagus and tomato’s. I chop them up and add to the mince when I am browning it. Alternatively it can be served as per the recipe on sweet potato or in lettuce cups. Its perfect for summer and requires minimal cooking. I hope you enjoy this one as much as we do 🙂
