- WHAT YOU WILL NEED -
- FOR THE SAUCE:
- FOR THE TACOS:
- 125ml mayonnaise
- 6 x medium sized flour tortillas - 16cm diameter (simply trim large flour tortillas if that is what you can find)
- 1 Tbsp tomato sauce
- 450g free-range beef mince (80% lean meat to 20% fat content is best for this and all burger patties)
- 1 Tbsp chutney
- Cape Herb & Spice Smokehouse BBQ Seasoning SMOKEHOUSE BBQ SEASONING
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- TO SERVE:
- 1 tsp sherry vinegar
- Shredded crunchy lettuce e.g. iceberg
- 1 tsp Cape Herb & Spice CHIPOTLE CHILLI
- Sliced tomatoes, Sliced onion, Sliced gherkins
- METHOD -
For the sauce:
Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix well. Taste to adjust seasoning and set aside in the fridge until serving.
For the tacos:
Heat a large cast-iron pan over medium-high heat until very hot.
Divide beef into 6 equal 75g portions.
Place beef on one side of each tortilla and press down until almost completely covered and even.
N.B. Do not season your meat until you are ready to cook. If you need to cook the tacos in batches, season each batch just before cooking or the meat will shrink substantially.
Season the mince covered tortillas generously with Cape Herb & Spice Smokehouse BBQ Seasoning.
Place tortillas in the hot pan meat side down and cook. Press each one down with a spatula a few times until a nice brown crust forms.
Flip the tortillas over, top with a slice of cheese and cook until the tortillas are golden and crisp on the bottom and the cheese has melted.
Transfer the tortillas to a board or platter and spread each one with a good dollop of chipotle sauce. Top with lettuce, tomato, onion and gherkins.
Serve straight away and enjoy!
