Mexican minced meat tacos

Corn tortillas topped with a minced meat mixture

Today I offer you a nice little recipe for a dinner with friends or even a dinner aperitif! I really like tacos because you can put whatever you want in them, I usually prepare several bowls with garnishes and so everyone puts what they want in their tortillas 🙂

Here I prepared a kind of chili made from ground beef, red beans, corn and tomato sauce. You can also use leftover chili or bolognese to garnish tacos, it’s a good idea to reuse leftovers;)

I offered with my chili salad, red cabbage just cut into strips, avocado slices, guacamole, onions, lime and small peppers for the more adventurous ^^

Mexican tacos

For the torillas, simply put them in the microwave a few seconds before serving, so they will be warm and more flexible. You don’t have a microwave? No problem! Place them on a wire rack over a pot of simmering water and cover with a plate. They will heat up with steam;)

And since it’s better homemade, don’t hesitate to try my homemade tortilla recipe , it’s very easy to make and economical!
