Shell tacos - recipe

Today has been a long day. Midwife appointment in the morning, which went well and work in afternoon. 

I was shattered by the time I came home. We had only two bags of beef minced meat at home in the freezer and loads of vegetables. I quickly asked hubby to buy avocado, taco shells and sour cream. It was time for taco evening. This is how I made it.


200-300 g beef minced meat
2-3 tbsp tomato pure
1/3 cup frozen sweetcorn
1 can red kidney beans
Taco seasoning
2 small onions

Taco shells

Cheddar cheese and sour cream

Salsa: tomato, lettuce, onion, avocado, lime juice, fresh coriander, dried parsley.


1. Fry the minced meat on high heat until browned. Add onions and beans and let brown as well. Add the taco seasoning and tomato pure as well as 1 cup water. Once it boils, turn down heat and let it simmer for 20 minutes until the water reduces.

2. Make the salsa while the sauce is simmering. Chop tomatoes, onions, lettuce and avocado as much as you like. Season with lime juice, fresh coriander and dried parsley to your taste. 

3. Once the taco sauce is done, serve everything together in small plates. Fill a taco shell with the sauce, sour cream, salsa and Cheddar cheese. That is my favourite combo😄
