Super tasty and very quick if the chimichurri is already done. Served over brown rice instead of in tortillas.0 Helpful
Oh my goodness, so flavorful and easy to make! The sauce can be used on almost anything! I made extra to use for something in the near future. The bean/corn mix also goes well on top of a salad. Great possibilities!0 Helpful
So quick to cook up, incredibly tasty. Would make this again but double the servings! We had to use forks and knives to eat these tacos, however. The chimichurri was very oily and made the taco messy to eat with our hands. Maybe the corn tacos we used were too small, too.0 Helpful
Kids loved this and so easy to put together with the sauce prepped ahead of time.0 Helpful
This was really easy and very good. I skipped the tortilla and put the mixture on top of a quinoa rice mix.0 Helpful
We made extra sauce and put it in ice cube trays in the freezer so we could enjoy later!0 Helpful
