Mexican pork chilli with a smoky barbecued flavour, served in crispy tortilla shells with ripe avocado. These easy pork tacos make a speedy family meal, ready in under 30 minutes.


• 2 tsp vegetable oil
• ½ red onion, chopped2 tsp each smoked paprika, chilli and ground cumin
• 500g pack lean pork mince
• 400g chopped tomatoes
• 5 tbsp barbecue sauce
• 400g can black bean, drained
• small bunch coriander, chopped
• 8 taco shells
• 1 ripe avocado, peeled and sliced
• ½ iceberg lettuce, finely shredded

To serve
• soured cream (optional)


Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the onion and cook for 5 mins until softened. Sprinkle over the spices and cook for 1 min more. Add the mince, breaking it up with the back of a wooden spoon, and stir until cooked through.

Stir the tomatoes and barbecue sauce into the pan. Increase the heat and allow the sauce to bubble and reduce until it clings to the meat. Add the beans, season and cook for a further 2 mins, then stir in the coriander.

This can be cooled then frozen at this point.

Heat the tacos following pack instructions. Use the pork and bean mix to fill the tacos, top with slices of avocado, shredded iceberg lettuce and a dollop of soured cream.
