Smoky pork & bean tacos


  • Olive oil spray
  • 400g pack Waitrose Cooks’ Ingredients soffritto mix
  • 300g Waitrose lean minced free range British pork
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 395g can essential Waitrose mixed beans in spicy tomato sauce
  • 1-2 tbsp Waitrose Cooks' Ingredients chipotle paste
  • 8 crunchy taco shells
  • ½ essential Waitrose Iceberg lettuce, finely shredded
  • 4 tbsp 0% fat Greek strained yogurt
  • Handful fresh coriander, to serve


  1. Spray a large pan with oil and fry the soffritto mix for 5 minutes until softened. Add the pork and cumin seeds, and cook for 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the beans and chipotle paste. Cover and simmer gently for 15 minutes until the pork is cooked through.
  3. Fill the taco shells with shredded lettuce, then spoon in the pork and bean mixture. Top with a little yogurt and a few coriander leaves, and serve immediately.

Cook’s tip: Adding a spoonful or two of chipotle paste is a great way to add a rich, smoky flavour to chilli and other Mexican-style dishes.
