Reviewed for ZWT 7 - these were perfect. I loved that the sauce was home-made and made the recipe exactly as stated (but for using two gluten-free tortillas for my serve). The sauce was really tasty and I think it was what made this recipe so good. Photo also to be posted ( but please change the pic default back to French Tart's amazing photo )
