Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


1. Preheat oven to 180°C.

2. Heat oil in a large frying pan on medium. Add lamb and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

3. Stir in sachet of taco flavour base and water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes, until thickened.

4. Meanwhile, warm taco shells according to packet directions. Fill shells with lamb mixture, taco sauce (from kit), lettuce, tomato, cheese, avocado and a little sour cream.

Tips: If desired, use prepared avocado dip in place of chopped avocado.
