Pick 1 tablespoon per 2 people of the coriander leaves*. Finely chop 1 tablespoon per 2 people of the coriander stems and roots. Finely dice the onion*. Drain and wash the kidney beans. Crumble the feta.

2. Cook the filling

Add the beans, most of the taco seasoning and a splash of water and cook for a further 5 minutes or until the mixture comes together. 

3. Roll the taquitos
