- 500 grams beef mince
- 1/2 small brown onion diced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 400 gram tin crushed tomatoes
- 3/4 cup chicken stock
- 3 teaspoons cumin
- 3 teaspoons coriander
- 3 teaspoons paprika
- 3 teaspoons oregano
- 1 teaspoon chilli flakes more/less to taste
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 avocado mashed, or your favourite guacamole
- 8 tablespoons sour cream 2 tbsp per person
- 1 cups grated cheese 1/4 cup per person
In a large, deep frying pan or heavy based sauce, heat the oil over medium-high heat and add the onion. Fry for 1 - 2 minutes until just translucent then add the beef mince.
Cook for 4 - 5 minutes, breaking the mince down with a wooden spoon until browned all over.
Meanwhile, combine the spices in a small bowl.
Add the spices to the browned mine and stir to coat the meat evenly, cooking for 1 minute or until fragrant.
Add the tinned tomatoes and chicken stock and bring to the boil. Turn heat down to a simmer for 15 - 20 minutes until thickened to your liking. Taste for chilli and salt, adding more as necessary.
Serve with avocado, sour cream and grated cheese, or reheat the next day for lunch.
