  • x1tsp Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 Red pepper cut into strips

For the cheesy taco

To Serve:

  • Home made guacamole (see recipe book)
  • Low fat sour cream
  • Handful of shredded iceberg lettuce


Method :

Preheat oven to 200c

Marinate your beef strips in all spices. Set aside.

Meanwhile fry your red and yellow pepper along with the red onion over a high heat in a frying pan.

When the peppers start to slightly brown add your beef, and gently fry until cooked though, add beansprouts just 2 minutes before serving.

Line a flat baking tray with parchment paper . Place your grated cheese onto the tray to form a circular shape and press flat.

Bake in the oven until crispy, around 3-4 minutes.

Remove from the oven and whilst the cheese is still flexible with the parchment paper still attached, bend the cheese over a round object to give it a taco shape, try using the side of a small bowl. Allow to cool, then peel it from the parchment paper.

Add shredded lettuce to the taco shell , your beef and serve with low fat sour cream , guacamole and some fresh chopped coriander.
