Tacos are crispy Mexican corn pancakes which make the perfect container for juicy chunks of spiced chicken, lettuce, cream and cheese. Use shop-bought salsa and you’ll have these easy chicken tacos ready in no time. This is a speedy supper that only takes 15 mins to cook and is sure to be a hit with the family! Use beef or turkey mince instead of chicken if preferred for a meaty and flavoursome filling.
