Now, don’t misunderstand us here – these are spiced beef tacos, and opposed to spicy. Just because there isn’t a load of chilli here doesn’t mean these tacos aren’t super tasty. But feel free to add your own hot sauce if you’re a heat seeker!

Instructions
1

In a medium bowl, combine 1/2 the olive oil with the taco spice blend and diced beef. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Set aside to marinate.

2

Roughly chop the baby spinach leaves. Dice the roma tomato. Grate the carrot. Grate the Cheddar cheese. Roughly chop the coriander leaves.

3

Juice the lime and combine with the Greek yoghurt and remaining olive oil in a second medium bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper and stir to combine.

4

Heat the butter in a large frying pan over a high heat for 1-2 minutes, or until melted and darkened in colour. Add the diced beef and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until just browned. Cooking the beef in browned butter helps it cook quickly whilst remaining tender in the middle.

5

Meanwhile, heat the mini tortillas in a microwave or sandwich press for a few seconds until warmed through (if using the microwave, place tortillas on a plate first).

6

Top each mini tortilla with some chopped baby spinach leaves and the Mexican beef. Spoon over some tomato, carrot, Cheddar cheese and a drizzle of the zesty lime yoghurt. Sprinkle over the coriander.
