Mexican Mince with Avocado and Coriander
A delicious mid-week meal for the whole family and so easy to make if you are camping or travelling with access to a stove and a fry pan.
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
2 onions, finely chopped
500g beef mince
1 green capsicum, diced
4 rashes bacon, finely chopped
1 can of tomato soup
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 stick celery, finely diced
1 cup macaroni or elbow pasta
2 cloves crushed garlic
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
finely chopped coriander
1 chopped ripe avocado
Gently fry the onions in olive oil until transparent. Add the beef mince, white pepper and bacon and cook until mince is browned.
Meanwhile, boil the macaroni in a separate saucepan until cooked.
Add the celery, garlic, oregano, and capsicum to the beef sauce and cook on a low heat for 10 minutes.
Add the tomato soup and water and simmer until mixture thickens and vegetables are cooked.
Add the macaroni to the beef mixture and mix well.
Serve with chopped avocado and coriander as a garnish.
I have also served this with some corn chips on the side. It's a crowd pleaser.
