A family favourite! You can use this recipe to make tacos, wraps or simply add this mixture to a bowl and add desired toppings.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 500g Lean beef mince
  • 1/2 Onion, diced
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 2 Carrots, finely grated
  • 1 or 2 Chillies
  • 1 can Refried beans
  • ~450g High-quality salsa
  • Taco shells
  • Assorted Toppings


  1. In a large pan over medium-high heat, combine the beef and onion and cook until no pink remains, then add the carrot and cook for a minute or two. Add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute.
  2. Use your Ansell food handling gloves to remove the seeds and finely chop the chilli.
  3. Stir in the chilli, refried beans and salsa. Cook until heated through and bubbling.


*I make my own salsa for this which also has chilli in it so adjust amount to suit your tastes. *For topping we use homemade Mexican rice, cheese, lettuce, tomato and avocado.
