a) Preheat the oven to 200°C. b) Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on high heat. c) When the oil is hot, add the beef mince and cook until browned, 5-6 mins. Use a wooden spoon to break it up as it cooks. Drain and discard any excess fat from the beef, then season with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince.

a) Add the pepper and Mexican spice to the beef mince and stir-fry for a minute. b) Mix in the Worcester sauce, tomato passata, kidney beans and beef stock paste. Using the back of a spoon, crush half the beans once they're in the pan. c) Bring to the boil, reduce the heat to low-medium and simmer until thickened, 7-8 mins. IMPORTANT: The mince is cooked when it is no longer pink in the middle.


a) Meanwhile, pop the tacos (2 per person) in a single layer on a lightly oiled baking tray and drizzle over some more oil. b) Bake in the oven until crispy and golden, 4-5 mins. c) Mix the lime zest into the soured cream.
