Spicy Mini Muffin Tin Beef Tacos

Spicy Mini Muffin Tin Beef Tacos

Serves 6


  • 350g Beef Mince (5% Fat)

  • 6 x 6 inch Flour Tortillas

  • 1 tsp Vegetable Oil

  • 1 Small Onion, Finely Chopped

  • 1/2 tsp Mild Chilli Powder

  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cumin

  • 1 tsp Ground Coriander

  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

  • 1/2 tsp Dried Oregano

  • 1/2 tsp Paprika

  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder

  • 400g Spicy Mixed Beans

  • To Serve

  • Shredded iceberg lettuce

  • Reduced fat Cheddar cheese, guacamole and sour cream for topping

Cooking Method

1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, 200°C fan, Gas mark 7.

2. Spray a 6-hole muffin tin with cooking spray.

3. Gently fold each tortilla in half, then in quarters. Place 1 in each muffin hole and unfold to make a cup. Spray the tortillas all over with cooking spray. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Bake until golden, 8 to10 minutes and cool.

4. Meanwhile, heat the vegetable oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened (about 2 minutes). Add the chili powder, cumin, coriander, Worcestershire, oregano, paprika and garlic powder; cook, stirring, until the onion is coated, about 1 minute.

5. Add the beef and cook, for 5-10 minutes, breaking up the meat with a spoon, until no longer pink. Add the beans and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes or until the sauce is slightly thickened. Season.

6. Fill each taco cup with a thin layer of lettuce and then the beef mixture. Top with reduced fat grated cheddar cheese, guacamole and sour cream as desired.
