Okay… I’m so confused now as to what happened to my initial post (if you find one with similar comments to this please delete it), but hopefully this post will work! (this should be the second post from me @LifeDietHealth !) Anyway, what a great combination of flavours! I think I will try this with a vegan ‘chicken-replacement’ . Thanks for sharing at Fiesta Friday! Enjoy the Fiesta! Stay safe.
