These instructions are to serve two people. When cooking for one, four or six the same techniques apply but the preparation and cooking times may change slightly.

We have included chilli in this dish. Please only use as much as you want.



1. Prepare the salsa: Wash the vegetables. Take the cheeks off half of the capsicum and remove the seeds from half of the chilli. Halve the onion and tomato (the remainder will be used for the salad). Heat a pan. Cook the prepared vegetables and garlic, with no oil, for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are charred all over and softened. Remove the garlic from the skin. Finely chop or blend all the charred ingredients together with a squeeze of lime and a good pinch of salt.

2. Make the salad: Finely chop the cucumber and the remaining onion, remaining capsicum, and remaining tomato into 1cm cubes. Finely chop the remaining jalapeno. Finely chop half of the washed coriander. Combine all the ingredients with a squeeze of lime or lemon and a pinch of salt.

3. Cook the potato and capsicum: Dice the potato and capsicum. Wash the starch off the potato. Heat a splash of oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Cook the potato and capsicum for five minutes. Put a splash of water in a bowl with a little of the spice mix. Pour over the vegetables. Cook, covered, for a couple minutes or until the potato and capsicum are cooked through.

4. Warm the tortillas: Heat and soften the tortillas directly over a gas flame or in a frying pan.

5. To serve: Serve all components separately on the table. Build your own tacos from the tortillas, salad, salsa, potato and capsicum, and fresh coriander.
