Recipe: TACO Tuesday Re-vamped

If you love tacos as much as me, they’re simply something you’re not willing to give up! So I thought I’d put a fresh and healthy twist on a classic Mexican Meal.


(Serves 4)

1x Cos Lettuce (use as lettuce cups)

2x Cubed Tomatoes

1x Grated Carrot

1x Avocado

½ a Red Onion

1x Lime

1kg of Lean Beed Mince (alternatively, chicken or turkey mince)

400g can of Kidney Beans

400g pure canned Dice Tomato’s

1-2 teaspoon of mixed Italian Herbs

2 cloves of Garlic


  1. Brown the mince in a large frying pan with the garlic and mixed herbs.

  2. Add in the kidney beans and canned tomatoes and allow it to simmer on a low heat.

  3. Smash a fresh avocado, add in half a diced red onion and squeeze over ½ a lime.

  4. Grate the carrot and cube the tomatoes.

  5. Serve the mince in the lettuce cup, top with the carrot, cubed tomatoes, avocado and lime.
