This weekend we decided to make some tacooooos! We love mexican food. I love it because it has so many veggie options and my husband like it mostly because it’s spicier than other cuisines.

How I did it

Step 1

Prep the filings
Marinate the minced meat first! In a caserole we added the minced meat, marinated with the following: olive oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, onion, garlic, ginger, coriander, salt and pepper. And left it in the fridge for 4 hours before actually cooking it.

I chopped the mushrooms, onion, red pepper, dropped some balsamic vinegar and soy sauce in the wok and dropped the onions. 5 minutes after i dropped in the mushrooms and red pepper too. Added in a pinch of olive oil, coriander, salt, pepper, some mexican condiments (fajitas) and mixed! Left for cooking about 20 minutes until they were perfectly sauted. And done! mushroom in the wok, sauted

Step 2

4 hours later

Step 4

Taco it!
Now it's time to fill in the corn crunchy tacos. We did not make the taco shells, we bought them from supermarket because they were cheap, in a good size and we did not have in our home in London all the necessary resources to make them from scratch. But if you have all you need, it's worth doing the corn taco shells from scratch!
Either way, to "Taco it" just take the corn taco and follow instructions below.
