This recipe is a lazy recipe through and through! Easy as and delicious. Everything in this post you’ll be able to pick up something similar in a grocery store – it doesn’t  matter too much if you use a little more or less of each ingredient – just fill your tacos! I picked these up on a whim and I just think they’re pretty great.


  • 12 Mini Stand ‘N’ Stuff Taco Shells – Old El Paso
  • 300g minced beef
  • 1 Onion
  • 200g Rainbow Couscous (make it by adding colourful veg or buy it pre-packed)
  • 1 sachet Your Favourite Fajita Seasoning
  • 1 Sliced Avocado
  • 200g Salsa (make it or fake it)
  • 100g Grated Monterey Jack or Mozzarella
  • A handful of spinach, and vegetables such as red onion, peppers – anything leftover!

Serves 3-4


Don’t be afraid to experiment with this, add veggies that you like such as a handful of red and yellow peppers, red onions, aubergine, sliced tomato and spinach – though rainbow couscous should cover it!

  1. Dice the onion and fry it in a little oil.
  2. While it’s browning, season the mince with fajita seasoning – be generous but don’t over do it! You may want to use about half a sachet.
  3. Add the mince to your pan, and fry it well until it’s cooked through.
  4. Take out the taco shells, and line them up on a tray, with a sheet of baking paper underneath.
  5. Sprinkle a layer of cheese on the bottom of each taco.
  6. Then, layer on two large teaspoons of rainbow couscous.
  7. Next, add a slice of avocado to each and layer on the mince till it reaches the brim.
  8. Sprinkle a light layer of any other vegetables and chopped spinach.
  9. Sprinkle a little cheese on the top of each and bake in the oven until golden, for about 10 mins.
  10. Serve with salsa and any other dips you fancy.
