DANÉE VS. FOOD: Homemade Fancy Fish (or Chicken !) Tacos

SHARE ME:

Berlin – where are all the tacos at? It’s been a year since my last (real) Mexican feast and since the sun came out for all of two days last week it has me craving icy cold beer and colourful spiced-up food. Or it could just be the 10 episodes of Breaking Bad I have watched…this week…already.

We will be conducting some research in the coming months to uncover what Berlin has to offer in the way of Mexican foods, but in the meantime, we are desperate for a hit of guacamole, so we have taken matters in to our own hands with this de-licious recipe created by the clever kitchen cats at Foodess.

What we love about this recipe is a) it’s easy, b) it’s healthy and c) it will wake up your dormant tastebuds.

About DANÉE

Once a week Danée brings you something food or drink related. When she isn't gorging her face with food things for the sake of the blog, she is probably drinking wine and searching for the perfect winter jacket - because the night is dark and full of terrors AKA negative temperatures.
