Who doesn’t like Mexican Food? It is great to see people making their own plate, eating it with rice, or wrapping it in wheat tortillas or corn tortillas. This can easily be served as a family dinner or for a large group. Prepare several toppings, such as a simple avocado salsa, some lettuce to balance out the protein and plain Greek yogurt to serve!
