Chopping Board


Get Frying
  • Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat.
  • Once hot, fry the mince, 5-6 mins.
  • Break up the mince as it cooks, then drain the fat. Season with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and utensils after handling raw meat. Cook so there's no pink in the middle.
Simmer Time
  • Next, add the Central American style spice mix (add less if you'd prefer things milder) and tomato puree. Stir-fry for 1 min.
  • Stir in the chicken stock paste, sugar and water for the sauce (see pantry for both amounts) and chicken stock paste.
  • Lower the heat and simmer, 1-2 mins. 
  • Taste and season with salt and pepper, if needed.
Salsa Up
  • Meanwhile, cut the tomato into small pieces.
  • In a bowl, combine the red wine vinegar, sugar and olive oil for the dressing (see pantry for both amounts).
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the tomato chunks and mix well.
Dinner's Ready!
  • Microwave the tortillas (3 per person) for 850W: 50 secs / 750W: 1 min.
  • If you don't have a microwave, just eat them cold.
  • Lay the tortillas on your plates. Pile with the salad, mince and salsa - as much as you'd like.
  • Finish with a dollop of soured cream. TIP: Eat your tacos by hand - get stuck in!



Step 1 MOD: If you’ve chosen to get beef mince instead of pork, cook the recipe in the same way.
