  • 1 Red Onion
  • 1 Teaspoons of Cumin & Smoked Paprika
  • 250 Grams of Pork Mince
  • 1 400 Gram Pack of Diced Tomatoes
  • 3 Tablespoons of Barbeque Sauce
  • 1 400 Gram Pack of Black Beans
  • 1 Small Bunch of Coriander
  • 1 12 Pack of Taco Shells
  • 1 Avocado (small)
  • 1 75 Gram Pack of Mixed Lettuce
  • 50 Grams of Sour Cream

Cook Onions & Add Smoked Paprika:

Preheat oven to 180°C. Medium dice ½ the onion (you will have remainder). Heat oil in a large pan, add the onion and cook for 5 minutes until softened. Sprinkle over the cumin & smoked paprika, then cook for 1 minute more.

Add & Cook Mince:

Add the mince, breaking it up with the back of a wooden spoon. Stir until cooked through, about 3 to 5 minutes.

Add Diced Tomatoes & BBQ Sauce:

Stir in ⅓ of the diced tomatoes (you will have remainder), the barbecue sauce, along with 2 tablespoons of water. Increase the heat and allow the sauce to bubble and reduce until it clings to the meat, about 5 minutes.

Add Black Beans:

In the meantime, drain and rinse the black beans. Add the black beans, season with salt and pepper and cook for 2 minutes more. Stir in the coriander leaves.

Heat Tacos:

Heat the tacos following the pack instructions.

You Plate It:
