For the taco bowls

  • 500g/1lb 2oz turkey mince (7% fat)

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 small onions (red or brown), finely chopped

  1. To make the Mexican seasoning, mix the ingredients together in a bowl.

  2. Put the turkey mince and Mexican seasoning into a large bowl and mix well with your hands.

  3. Heat half the olive oil in a frying pan over a high heat and cook the onions, spring onions and peppers for 3 minutes. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Remove the vegetables from the pan and set aside.

  4. Heat the remaining oil in the same pan and cook the turkey mince for 4 minutes, or until browned, making sure you break it up as finely as possible with a wooden spoon.

  5. Add the chopped tomatoes, kidney beans and a pinch of salt and pepper. Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

  6. Stir in the cooked vegetables and most of the coriander, and simmer for another 2 minutes.

  7. Evenly cover the base of four bowls with the tortilla chips. Divide the turkey mixture between the bowls and top each with a tablespoon of crème fraîche. Sprinkle over the remaining coriander and serve.
