Preparation time:  25 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Recipe serves: 2 people



  • 1 1/2 onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 clove garlic (finely chopped)
  • 1 sweet red pepper (thinly sliced lengthways)

Taco filling:

  1. Finely chop 1 onion, 1 clove of garlic and add to pan with olive oil on medium heat. Sauté for 2-3 minutes, or until slightly golden brown (being careful not to burn).
  2. Add in sweet red pepper, courgette and 2 tsp taco seasoning stirring well. Cook on medium to high heat for  further 5 minutes so veggies become slightly charred (and smoky tasting).


  1. Remove stone from avocado and remove from skin. Use fork to make a rough guacamole texture. Add in 1/4 finely chopped onion, squeeze of lime and pinch of salt. Mix together and set to one side. 

Refried beans

  1. Add beans to pan with splash of oil and cook on a medium to low heat. If you prefer beans to have a bit of spice, add in 1 tsp chilli powder. 

Pico de gallo salsa

  2. Place tortillas in oven (or microwave for 20 seconds) to warm up.
