Tacos are my go to meal to cook when I have friends over, I’m basically famous for them and that was way before they became major on Instagram; yes you can say I made them a thing – You’re welcome.

My recipe is so easy, the only question you’ll be asking is soft or hard shell tacos?

 

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 1hr 30minutes

Ingredients to serve 4 :

  • 750g steak mince
  • 1/2 a cup of water
  • 2 tablespoons of paprika
  • 1 tablespoon of cumin
  • 2 tablespoons of chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 tomatoes diced
  • 1 diced onion
  • 2 diced garlic cloves
  • 1/2 a chopped red pepper
  • 1 beef oxo cube

To garnish:

  • 1 tomato diced
  • 1/2 iceberg lettuce shredded
  • 12 tortillas or hard shell tacos
  • 1 avocado diced
  • a handful of coriander
  • grated cheese to garnish

Step 1:  Add the mince to a pan and begin to cook stirring and grounding the mince frequently.  Once the mince starts to brown add the rest of the ingredients except the water and stir for 3-5 minutes.

Step 2: Add the water and crumble and oxo cube into the pan and stir.  Put the lid on and leave to cook on a slow heat for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally to ensure the ingredients aren’t sticking to the pan.  In this cooking period, the juices should simmer and have a better consistency, if the mince seems too “juicy” cook for a longer.

Step 3: Once the mince is cooked, prepare the garnish items.  I like to put my tacos into the oven on a low setting for 2-3 minutes so they are warm and crispy if you have decided to have hard shell tacos (my favourite).dsc_0666

Step 4: Eat the meal and give them something to taco about!
