How to meal prep

Divide all the toppings into separate containers, that’s the peppers, the black beans and the feta.  For the lettuce and coriander, line the containers with a kitchen towel to prevent sogginess.  When you are ready to eat, heat up a serving of the warm ingredients for 1 minute in the microwave, then serve up a portion of tacos (2-3) with some shredded lettuce, black beans, saucy veg, crumbled feta and coriander. Optional top with chilli flakes and serve with some lettuce on the side.

Ingredients

  • 3 mixed peppers, sliced into thin pieces (£1.25)
  • 12 hard taco shells (£1.50)
  • 326 g (1 tin) sweet corn (£0.45)
  • 400 g (1 tin - 246g drained weight), black beans and rinsed (£0.60)
  • 1 head of iceberg lettuce, thinly sliced (£0.60)
  • 200 g feta, crumbled (£0.70)
  • Bunch of fresh coriander, roughly chopped (£0.55)

Cupboard Essentials

  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp + ½ tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 400 ml beef stock
  • Salt & pepper
  • Optional chilli flakes

Method

  • To a large non-stick frying pan over a high heat, add the peppers and season with salt. Fry for around 4 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, to a heatproof jug, add the beef stock and the drained black beans. Roughly blitz (around 3 times). Pour into a pan over a medium/high heat. Season the beans with ½ tsp cumin.
  • To the peppers, add ½ tsp cumin, 1 tsp paprika, tomato puree, oregano and the sweetcorn. Heat for a further 4 minutes, adding a splash of water to make everything saucy.
  • Once the black beans have thickened, you’re good to go. Serve up a portion of tacos (2-3) with some shredded lettuce, black beans, saucy veg, crumbled feta and coriander. Optional top with chilli flakes and serve with some lettuce on the side.
  • To prep, divide the toppings into separate containers, lining the containers with a kitchen towel for the lettuce and coriander to prevent sogginess.
  • On the day of eating, heat up a serving of the warm ingredients for 1 minute in the microwave.
