Instructions

Get Prepped
1

a) Grate the cheese. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

b) Trim the baby gem, halve lengthways, then thinly slice.

c) Drain and rinse the kidney beans in a sieve. Pop half the beans into a bowl and mash with a fork until broken up.

Brown the Mince
2

a) Pop a frying pan on medium-high heat (no oil).

b) Once hot, add the beef mince and fry until browned, 5-6 mins.

c) Use a spoon to break it up as it cooks, then drain and discard any excess fat. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince. The mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Add the Flavour
3

a) Reduce the heat to medium and add the garlic, tomato puree and Cajun spice mix (add less if you'd prefer things milder) to the beef.

b) Stir to combine, then cook until fragrant, 1-2 mins.

c) Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

Bring on the Beans
4

a) Pour in the water for the beef (see pantry for amount), then stir in the beef stock paste and kidney beans (whole and mashed).

b) Stir until everything's evenly mixed and the sauce has thickened, 2-3 mins.

c) Season with salt and pepper. Add a splash more water if it's a little dry.

Salad Time
5

a) Meanwhile, pour the cider vinegar, sugar and olive oil for the dressing into a medium bowl (see pantry for both amounts).

b) Season with salt and pepper, then mix together until combined. Add the lettuce to the dressing and toss well.

c) Pop the tortillas (3 per person) onto a baking tray and into your oven to warm through, 1-2 mins.

Assemble your Tacos
6

a) Taste the beef and bean mix and season with salt and pepper if needed.

b) Share the tortillas between your plates and top with spoonfuls of the beef and bean mix - as much as you'd like.

c) Sprinkle over the cheese and top with some salad.

d) Serve any remaining salad alongside. TIP: Tacos are best enjoyed eaten by hand - get stuck in!

Enjoy!
