Soft Chicken, Chipotle & Chilli Sprout Tacos

Family meal or flat dinner, this taco recipe is perfect for keeping hungry mouths happy

Whether you’re in a flat of eight or family of three, tacos make the perfect dinner. Change the meat for seafood or use leftovers from the previous night — there are endless options for fillings. Soft tortilla are a great pantry staple. I will often make them into a quesadilla for lunch with leftovers or just Marmite and cheese.
