Easy Meal - Taco spice mix

The Hubby and I love having cheat 'fake away' these days on a Friday or Saturday night. We like to feel like we've had a naughty feast but in reality it's been all good and relatively cheap compared to a real take away.

We sometimes go fajita's or curry and occasionally Taco's. Well that 'occasionally' is going to turn into often with this mix (until now I've only used the packet mix).

I fry the mince (or in this case tiny chicken strips) until it's got colour and then add the spice mix, peppers and onion. I add a splash of water and let it all cook through until the onion has softened. We like it quite spicy so you can modify to your taste.

Spice mix:
2tsp chilli powder
1 clove garlic ground
1tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
1tsp oregano (but I only had mixed herbs which worked just the same)
1tsp chilli flakes (ground)
Pinch sea salt
Pinch pepper

Serve with warm Taco shells, salad, salsa (again we make our own) and cheese. Sometimes we have some cheeky black eyed beans too (I know, daring eh!). The only decision left to make is how are you going to load up your Taco...
