A Quick and easy feta and sweet potato taquitos recipe

feta sweet potato taquitos recipe

‘Our World Kitchen’ is something that I briefly started on here at the start of the year and then failed to continue but it is something that I get so excited about when I think of it, that I need to start it properly. Alongside all the foodie travels on here I have always wanted to post recipes, recipes inspired by our travels around the world and dishes we have loved a long the way. DJ is an incredible chef and is very talented at presenting food, I want to share his skills and inspire more home cooking, and hopefully actually improve in my own cooking skills along the way. Some of the recipes will be recreations of dishes we have collected a long the way and some will be meals we have developed ourselves.  The idea behind ‘Our World Kitchen’ is for travel to inspire food and food to inspire travel. First up Mexican feta and sweet potato taquitos inspired by Mexican street food restaurant Wahaca.
