  • 1 bunch of coriander
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil

*Choose your chillies according to the level of heat desired. For this particular recipe long red or green chilies or jalapeños are recommended; however, you can use capsicum for a super mild dish or habaneros for a super hot salad that will make you cry!

  2. Squeeze the juice of the lime into the bowl

  6. Grab your crumbly Fetta cheese and break it with your hands into small pieces into the salad bowl
  7. Finally chop and add avocado and coriander. Pour the olive oil on top and mix through the salad.
  8. Serve the salad in the Tortilla as a taco filling with Refried Bayo Beans. Enjoy.
