Savoury Mexican Mince

Following my previous post about preparing meals that we can all enjoy as a family, here's another meal idea that goes down well with us. I love the fact that:
  • it is all done in the one pot
  • the flavours are yummy
  • has 6 hidden vegetables in the sauce (same combination of vegetables used in my previous recipe
  • can be served in a variety of ways (with rice, pasta, over tacos with melted cheese and guacamole, on toast or on its own)
  • can be kept in the fridge for up to 2 days or in the freezer for up to 2 weeks and suitable for re-heating in the microwave
Alright, now that I have shared the benefits of this meal. Allow me to get back on track and share this super duper recipe with you:
Savoury Mexican Mince (serves 4 very healthy portions)
600g organic lean beef mince
I packet taco seasoning spice mix
1 jar of your favourite salsa
1 tsp. garlic and onion salt
Purred vegetables of your choice (ref to previous recipe)
Rice Bran Oil
150ml of water
  1. In a deep stainless steel pot, spray a thin layer of rice bran oil. Brown beef mince for 5 minutes. Ensuring that you break up the mince as you go.
  2. Add garlic and onion salt + Taco seasoning spice mix. Mix well. Add salsa and pureed vegetables. Mix well. Water. Cook on high for 5 minutes. Simmer on low for 15 minutes.
