  1. Heat a large sauté pan or casserole until hot. Add the oil and beef and fry until browned on all sides, then pull the meat across to one side and add the onion.

  2. Fry for a couple of minutes, then mix with the beef, add the chopped chilli and pepper and cook for another minute.

  3. Stir in the spices from the Taco Kit, the ground cinnamon, chilli flakes and tomato puree and cook for 2 minutes.

  4. Add the tinned beans and tomatoes, refill the empty tomato can with water and add to the pan.

  5. Add the stock cube/pot and bring to the boil, stirring occasionally. Turn the heat down to a simmer, cover and cook gently for 40 minutes until the beef is tender and the sauce reduced slightly.

  6. Meanwhile, prepare the salsa. Tip the sachet of salsa into a large bowl, add the cherry tomatoes, red onion, sweetcorn and half the chopped coriander and stir together gently until everything is coated in the salsa.

  7. Heat the tacos according to packet instructions.

  8. When the beef is tender, stir in the grated chocolate and half the remaining coriander. Season with a little black pepper and remove from the heat.

  9. Pile the shredded red cabbage and tomato salsa into the shells, then top with the jalapeno chillies and a dollop of kefir. Scatter the last of the coriander over the top with wedges of lime, and serve the remaining shells alongside to scoop the chilli up with.
