These are so delicious and a lot easier to make than I expected. Definitely worth every minute! McCain invited me to be part of the first of the four-part virtual masterclass series hosted by JSomething featuring the lovely Zanele Van Zyl. Known in Mzansi as a culinary influencer and cookbook author, Zanele created a chicken stir fry tortilla, which was brought to life with the McCain Hawaiian Stir Fry. She showed participants how to make tortillas from scratch, and shared a scrumptious butternut and sweet potato couscous salad, made with cranberries, McCain Garden Peas and McCain Butternut & Sweet Potato mix.
