Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 500g lean Quality Mark beef or lamb mince
  • 2 tablespoons tomato purée
  • 400g can tomatoes in juice
  • 1 teaspoon mixed herbs or 1 tablespoon chopped fresh herbs (optional)
  • 420g can baked beans
  • 10-12 Taco shells
  • 1 cup grated cheese

Method

Heat the oil in a frying pan, and cook the onion gently for 5-6 minutes, until tender. Add the mince, breaking up with the back of a spoon to form small pieces until cooked thoroughly and no longer pink. Stir in tomato purée, canned tomatoes and herbs. Bring to the boil and simmer gently for 30 minutes until reduced and thick, but still moist.

Add a 420g can of baked beans to the cooked mince mixture and fill warmed taco shells topped with grated cheese. Serve with salad, or your favourite vegetables.
