Mince is quite high in calories, so try and find lean or extra-lean mince, or use ostrich mince if it is available. Unfortunately, in the Netherlands, mince is all I can find in-store. This mince recipe is extremely versatile, and you can reduce the amount of mince you’re eating by adding in stacks of vegetables. You can use this mince in a burrito, or a quesadilla, or you can create Mexican bowls which is what we usually do.
