Store in a cool, dry place.


1. Make the Filling:
Heat a little oil in a pan until piping hot. Add minced beef and brown over a medium heat before draining off the excess liquid. Add the Old El Paso Original Taco Spice Mix and 100ml water. Stir well to mix, bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally until liquid is reduced.

2. Warm the Taco Shells:
To Heat in Oven: Pre-heat oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Place Taco Shells open end down on a baking sheet and heat in oven for 2-3 minutes.
Alternatively, to Microwave: Place 6 Taco Shells open end down in a microwaveable dish. Microwave on full power for 1 minute. Reduce time proportionally for fewer Taco Shells. Time may vary depending on microwave.

3. Stuff and Enjoy:
Take the warmed Taco Shells and filling to the table. Let everyone stuff the Taco Shells with spiced meat, grated cheese, chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce and Old El Paso Salsa. Enjoy!
