  • Add 1 tsp of oil to a frypan and bring to medium heat.  Add beef mince and stir until browned all the way through breaking up the lumps with your wooden spoon as you go.
  • Add taco seasoning and water to pan and continue stirring until cooked through and water absorbed.
  • Pre-heat oven to 180C whilst you are preparing other taco ingredients into individual bowls.
  • Place tacos in oven and heat through as per packet instructions.
  • For a fun family dinner, place all your bowls on a Lazy Susan in the middle of the table and let everyone create their own style of taco or burrito.

* 2tbsps of seasoning gives lots of flavour and may be a little too spicy for young kids. If serving to young kids who don’t like spicy food, use only 1tbsp or 1.5tbsps of seasoning.
