Old El Paso


Store in a cool dry place.


1. For a great filling.
- Add a splash of oil and heat a pan. Brown the mince before draining off the excess liquid.
- Sprinkle in the Old El Paso Spice Mix for Tacos and add 100ml of water.
- Give it a good stir and when it starts to bubble, reduce the heat and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes or so.
- Stir occasionally until reduced to a lovely rich, tasty filling.
2. Warm up the Taco shells.
- Pre-heat the oven to 180°C (it's still 180°C for fan assisted ovens!), gas mark 4.
- Place the Taco Shells open end down on a baking sheet or some foil and heat for 2-3 minutes.
Alternatively, to microwave:
- Place 6 Taco shells open end down on a microwave dish. Microwaves can vary but it'll take about a minute for 6 and less for fewer.
3. Fill them up and get crunching.
- Bring it all to the table and help yourselves: the warm Taco Shells, the hot filling, crispy lettuce, juicy tomatoes, grated cheese and Old El Paso Taco Salsa. Fill them up and get crunching.
