Method

  1. Quickly pickle the onion: put it in a bowl and sprinkle with the sugar and 1⁄2 tsp salt. Leave for 10 mins, then stir in the cider vinegar and leave to pickle for another 10 mins.

  2. Meanwhile, stir the beans and chilli sauce into the Bolognese and heat for 10-15 mins until piping hot. Add a little water if the mixture seems too thick.

  3. Heat the corn tortillas following pack instructions. Top with spoonfuls of the Bolognese, some pickled onions, lettuce, avocado and a dollop of soured cream.

Great & so easy! Go for it! A few alterations for us: - I replace salami by deli ham (better regarding salt & fat, in my view, but this needs to be checked) & I add it to the bolognese before keeping some for the tacos - I keep only 1/3 of the bolognese for these tacos, to which I add an extra 1/2 can kidney beans (the other 1/2 can is used in a Speedy minestrone from Feb.2014 for lunch the next day) - since we don't like spicy food (we're French!), I replace the chili sauce by 2-3 shots of Tabasco sauce
