Taco Salad With Beef Mince And Fresh Salsa

Taco Salad With Beef Mince And Fresh Salsa

Posted 2014-12-08 by Kate Matefollow
This is something I have only found in American Mexican restaurants, but now I have found a way to make it myself at home.

Taco salad bowl filled with all my favourites

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes -60 minutes
Makes: 4 bowls

4 mini tortillas
500g beef mince
1/2 cup tomato salsa mild or hot
2 cups of spinach
1 tablespoon of mild paprika
1/2 teaspoon of chilli powder
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup of grated cheese
2 tablespoons olive oil

For the Fresh Salsa
1 corn cob
2 tablespoons of parsley
1/2 red onion
1 tomato

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  • To make the bowls you will need 1 or 2 mini cake tins.
  • *Two is best so you can bake two at a time.
  • If you just have one it will take 15 minutes to bake each one (total time 60 minutes)

  • This is the mini cake tin I use

  • Crumple up a piece of baking paper and then unfold it and place into the spring form tin. This helps it to stay in place.
  • Repeat with the second spring form tin.
  • Brush two tortillas with a little olive oil on each side and season one side with salt.
  • Place one tortilla over each spring form tin and gently press the centre in to make a bowl. Don't press too hard as the tortilla may tear.
  • Place both tins side by side and bake for 15 minutes.
  • While these are cooking start prepping the fresh salsa and mince.
  • In a pot of boiling water cook the corn cob on high heat for 10 minutes.
  • Dice the tomato and onion and place in a bowl.
  • Roughly chop the parsley and add to the tomato bowl.
  • For the mince heat a fry pan on high with the olive oil.
  • Add in small amounts of mince at a time so it doesn't make the pan cold and stew the meat.
  • Mix chilli powder, garlic powder and paprika and add to the mince.
  • The corn and the first two tortilla bowls will now be ready. Remove the corn from the pot and place on a board to cool.
  • Take the tray from the oven and place the taco bowls onto a plate. They should be brown around the edges and still a little soft in the middle.

  • Tortillas should look like this

  • Brush two more tortillas with oil on both sides and season one side with salt and gently place into the spring form tins. Try not to touch the sides much as the tins will still be hot. The paper protects you a little from burning yourself.
  • Once mince has cooked turn off the heat and cover with a lid to keep warm.
  • Using a sharp knife cut the corn from the cob and place it into the tomato bowl. Mix well and your fresh salsa is done.

  • Fresh Salsa looks like this

  • When the last 2 bowls have 2 minutes cooking time left, quickly open the oven and place the other 2 back in to warm up.
  • Using four bowls place spinach in one, cheese in another, fresh salsa in the third and the tomato salsa in the fourth bowl and place in the centre of the table.
  • When all the taco bowls are cooked place the mince in a bowl and serve everyone a bowl and let them fill their own. That's half of the fun of tacos at home.
