For the Beef Sauce:

  • 48g (3 tablespoons) tomato pasta sauce
  • 10g (1 tablespoon) curry powder
  • 1.5g (1 teaspoon) chili pepper powder
  • 18g (1 tablespoon) minced garlic
  • 30g (2 tablespoons) chopped onion
  • A sprinkle of pepper powder

Let’s Make Tacos:

  1. Cook the Beef:
    • Start by cooking the minced beef in a pan over medium heat. Break it apart with a spoon and cook until it’s no longer pink.
  2. Make the Beef Sauce:
    • To the beef, add the tomato pasta sauce, curry powder, chili pepper powder, minced garlic, chopped onion, and a sprinkle of pepper. Mix well and let it simmer for a few minutes until everything is nicely combined and the beef is flavorful.
  3. Prepare the Tortillas:
    • Warm up the flour tortillas in a pan or microwave so they’re soft and easy to fold.
  4. Assemble the Tacos:
    • On a large tortilla, spread some of the beef sauce. Then, add lettuce, chopped tomatoes, jalapenos, and sweet corn if using.
    • Drizzle some sour cream and nacho sauce over the top. Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded cheese.
    • For an extra crunch, add some nacho chips or broken tostada shells.
    • If you’re using two sizes of tortillas, place the smaller one on top of the large one before adding the toppings for double the fun.
  5. Fold and Enjoy:
    • Fold your tortilla up and get ready to enjoy a tasty Tex-Mex taco filled with flavors and textures.
