Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the onion and cook for 5 mins until softened. Sprinkle over the spices and cook for 1 min more. Add the mince, breaking it up with the back of a wooden spoon, and stir until cooked through.
  2. Stir the passata and barbecue sauce into the pan along with 4 tbsp water. Increase the heat and allow the sauce to bubble and reduce until it clings to the meat. Add the beans, season and cook for a further 2 mins, then stir in the coriander. Heat the tacos following pack instructions.
  3. Use the pork and bean mix to fill the tacos, top with slices of avocado, shredded iceberg lettuce and a dollop of soured cream, if you like.

Very, very tasty. Its really good as an alternative to chilli for children (or indeed anyone) who don't like anything too spicy. If you find it hard to get tins of black beans, then kidney beans or pinto beans would work fine. I did track them down in Waitrose in the end though.
