Ingredients

  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • ½ red onion, chopped
  • 2 tsp each smoked paprika and ground cumin
  • 500g pack lean pork mince
  • 300ml passata
  • 5 tbsp barbecue sauce
  • 400g can black bean, drained
  • small bunch coriander, chopped
  • 8 taco shells
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and sliced

    Avocado

    av-oh-car-doh

    Although it's technically a fruit, the mild-flavoured avocado is used as a vegetable. Native…

  • ½ iceberg lettuce, finely shredded
  • soured cream, to serve (optional)

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.

Have made this twice now. Used mixed beans instead of black beans as could not find them locally. Really tasty, easy to make, and agree with Sam, makes a nice change from beef mince.

Couldn't get black beans so used black eyed beans instead. Really lovely flavour - will make again.

Made this tonight for the family and they all loved it! Was the first time I've used smoked paprika and I think it'd my new favourite ingredient. I did make one slight alteration to the recipe and omitted the BBQ sauce and used a some brown sugar to add some sweetness. I also added Tabasco which was yum :)

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.
