        I doubled this recipe and glad I did. I found that made 3 servings of two medium lettuce cups each. This was my first time with Tahini sauce and I thought it tasted terrible when I whipped it up, so I threw a good bit of chili sauce into the meat & spices while cooking it to give extra flavor & heat incase we didn’t want to use the Tahini sauce. But once added with the other flavors the sauce was good & my husband requested I make it again! I will put the chili sauce in again next time too! It was good and once you cook down the liquid, it wasn’t too hot either.

          Tahini needs a touch of sweetness to counter a bitter aftertaste, so add a bit of your fave sweetener-I use monk fruit- to make it perfect!
