Check out the full recipe below:
- 1 cup | 200g ground beef
- 1 onion
- 2 bell peppers
- Taco spice mix
- Small tortilla wraps (corn (GF) or wheat)
- Pico de gallo salsa
- 2.5 oz | 70g sour cream
- Fresh coriander
- 2.6 oz | 75g grated cheese
For homemade spice mix
- 1 tsp | 5ml cumin
- 1 tsp | 5ml paprika
- 1 tsp | 5ml oregano
- 1 tsp | 5ml white pepper
- 1 tsp | 5ml salt
For homemade pico de gallo salsa
- 1 red onion (finely diced)
- 4 tomatoes (deseeded and finely diced)
- Chopped fresh coriander
- 1 lime
- Salt and pepper
Homemade salsa (optional)
- Finely dice all of the ingredients for the salsa and add to a bowl.
- Combine the ingredients by mixing together and finish with a squeeze of lime.
- Continue adding more lime juice and seasoning to taste.
- Slice the onion into strips (or dice if preferred), and deseed two peppers before slicing into strips.
- Heat a frying pan on the stove and add a tablespoon of vegetable oil. Once the pan is hot, add the onions and peppers and cook until soft.
- Add the ground beef to the pan and break it up with a spatula.
- Sprinkle ½ tbsp of the taco spice mix into the pan, stir and continue to cook until the beef is cooked through. Remove the mixture from the pan and set it aside.
- Place a wrap in the center of the pan and spoon in some of the beef before topping with grated cheese.
- After a few minutes, fold the wrap in half, press down and flip. (The taco should be browned with a crisp exterior and the cheese should have melted.)
- Repeat steps five and six until you have the desired amount of tacos.
- Top the tacos with salsa, sprinkle with fresh coriander and serve with sour cream.
