Chicken tacos




  • 500g Tegel Fresh Chicken Mince
  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • 400g can Mexican tomatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons tomato paste
  • 8 Jumbo taco shells
  • 1 ½ cups grated cheese
  • Iceberg lettuce
  • 3 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • Mexican salsa for serving (optional)


Preheat the oven to 180°C.  

  1. Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan. Add the chicken mince and cook over high heat for 5 minutes or until the mince is golden brown. Mash with a fork while browning to break up the mince.  
  2. Add the onion and garlic to the pan and cook over medium heat for a further 2 to 3 minutes. Add the Mexican tomatoes and tomato paste. Simmer for 10 minutes or until the sauce reduces and thickens.  
  3. Meanwhile, place the taco shells onto a baking tray. Heat in the preheated oven for 5 minutes, or until they are warm. Serve the taco shells with the chicken mince mixture, cheese, shredded lettuce and tomatoes. Top with salsa if desired
