I’ve never made any secret about the fact that my favourite restaurant in the whole wide world is Wahaca. I love their Mexican street food so much that I bought their founder’s book, and it’s amazing! Every recipe made my mouth water, and the way it’s put together is nothing short of beautiful.

I’m also facing the conclusion of my second week of fat club, and wondered if I could adapt something to fit in with the Slimming World ethos, without skimping on flavour.

This recipe started life as Thomasina Miers’ Summery Spinach and Feta Tacos, and the filling remains pretty true to her recipe. All I’ve really changed is the cooking and serving methods (and of course the name, ever so slightly!).

The feta and fresh mint in this recipe did make it as Summery as the original title implies, and I found it delightfully tasty! Served up with some paprika & garlic sweet potato wedges, two of these wraps were enough to fill me up, and totalled 13 syns (that’s Slimming World’s points system, and I’m allowed up to 15 a day). See the Tidy tweaks section for ways to bring that down even further!
