    Lusog Notes
    This taco dish is high in vitamins A and B1. Vitamin A is important for normal vision and healthy skin as well as for protection from infections while vitamin B1 helps the body to convert food that we eat into energy as well as supports normal growth.
    Chef`s Tip
    Keep tortillas warm and soft by placing them on a tray then covering them with a towel. Leaving them uncovered will dry them out and make them brittle.
