Minced Meat Tacos - Kitui Flour Mills Limited

Step 1

For the minced meat: Heat oil in a pan and add the meat. Use a wooden spoon to break apart the meat as it cooks. Once browned, add salt, cumin powder, and coriander leaves and stir. Set aside.

For the taco shells: In a bowl, mix together maize meal, all-purpose flour, salt and hot water. Take the dough out of the bowl and onto your working surface and knead for 5 minutes. Take some dough the size of a golf ball into your palm and roll. Place the dough between two parchment papers and roll using a rolling pin.

Place the tacos on a preheated dry griddle and cook for 30 seconds on each side. Store in a kitchen towel as you finish making the rest.
