  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tbsp soft brown sugar

The Pork mince is much better than beef mince. The sauce is on the sweet side, however a spicy addition such as Tabasco sauce gives the dish more oomph. I used a sauce called Bee Sting (Mango, passion fruit and pepper sauce) with the soured cream. Im not sure the pineapple goes well with corriander, but it certainly makes it feel fresh.

We all really enjoyed this, sweet and smoky and delicious! I used chipotle paste instead of paprika

A fantastic dish, and so much nicer with Pork instead of steak mince. I couldn't get over how easy it was to make the salsa and the taste was amazing. Have made this a few times now and it’s a firm favourite!

This was an absolutely fabulous recipe. Very tasty, especially with the sour cream and Tabasco on top too. That pineapple salsa is amazing! The boyfriend absolutely loved it :)
