I went camping this weekend and decided to take taco making equipment with me and managed to feed the whole camp a nice snack at lunch time! I made the meat before I went though and reheated and had quite a few people ask me what I had put into the meat so I may as well write it on here!
You can buy taco kits which has a spice mix included in the box but I had most of the key spices in the house anyway. I THINK this is what I used!
1 tbsp Coriander seeds
1 tbsp Cumin Seeds
6 small dried chilli’s (or chilli powder)
1 dried Chipotle chilli ( I get these form the Arndale market in Manchester from a Mexican food stall in the food court)
1 tsp Mustard powder
1 tbsp Smoked Paprika
1 small magi seasoning cube
1 tsp Cayenne pepper
1 large clove garlic
1 tbsp sugar
Toast the cumin and coriander seeds in a frying pan ( or use ready ground) then put into a pestle and mortar with the chilli. Bash and grind the mixture until it is fine. Add the other spices and the garlic and bash until fully incorporated.
Fry a large packet of mince meat and drain off any excess fat then add the spice mix and cook for around 5 minutes.
Serve in warmed crispy tacos with shredded lettuce, grated cheese, jalepenos, salsa and soured cream.
