  • 2 tbsp chipotle paste
  • 400g pack turkey mince
  • 100g long grain rice, rinsed
  • 420g can kidney bean in water, rinsed and drained
  • 600ml chicken stock
  • 140g frozen sweetcorn, defrosted


    sw-eet corn

    Also known as corn on the cob, sweetcorn is composed of rows of tightly packed golden yellow…

  • small bunch coriander, chopped
  • 8 taco shells
  • ½ iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 150ml pot soured cream
  • grated cheese and guacamole, to serve


  1. Heat the paste in a frying pan with a lid. When hot, add the mince and cook until browned, breaking it up well with a fork. Stir in the rice and beans, and mix well, then add the stock.

  2. Cover and simmer for 20-25 mins until the rice is tender, then stir in the sweetcorn and scatter over the coriander. Heat the taco shells following pack instructions, then serve with the mince mixture, lettuce and soured cream. Let everyone build their own dinner, adding grated cheese and guacamole.

Made this tonight - it's okay, not great. I felt that the measurement of stock was too much for the amount of rice (and that included having a slightly larger quantity of turkey mince). I much prefer the pork and black bean tacos that are on the GF website - as these tacos are a little bland and "soft" for my taste.

This was easy to make and delicious, not overly spicy as my family enjoyed it and they don't like things too hot. I added a chopped onion to the recipe which I softened before adding in the chipotle paste and I added a tin of kidney beans in chilli sauce rather than just the plain variety. Very filling and will definitely make again.
