If you love Mexican you’ll love this simple snack idea.

Fresh avocado is paired with kidney beans, tomato, cheese and spices to create these moorish snacks.

Frozen pastry is great to have on hand for making things like our Easy Spinach and Cheese Pie or our Sweet Potato & Caramelised Onion Quiche.

Both of these recipes are available for members of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
