A  Food Nation favourite, simple, tasty and a crowd pleaser every time – who knew eating all your vegies could be so much fun!


Heat a large frying pan, add about 2 Tbs of olive oil and when hot, add Food Nation Mexican Magic Mince. Break up with a wooden spoon and cook until golden brown and caramelised.

While cooking, place tortillas in a hot dry pan and warm on both sides, setting aside on a plate while you continue to cook. Meanwhile prepare your tomatoes, red cabbage, carrot, red onion, chilli, coriander and lime juice.

When your Mexican Magic Mince is nicely caramelised, place a large spoonful in a tortilla and top with the other ingredients. Finish with a squeeze of lime juice and a dash of chilli sauce. Add other Mexican favourites like avocado, sour cream or salsa for an even more deluxe version.
