Author Notes

A healthy alternative on a Mexican tortilla that is traditionally filled with cheese hence the meaning ‘little cheesy thing’. Our take is this – ‘little avocado thing’ which is full of goodness, full of fibre to ensure gut health, full of healthy fats which ensure that the carotenoid antioxidants are well absorbed into the body, full of vitamins and minerals that have many benefits – folate for cell function, potassium for heart health, Vitamin C for immune function to name a few. Buen provecho.
