Delicious and easy to make, these Winter Warmer Quorn Taco Cups are sure to inject a bit of fun into family mealtimes.
A lot of people, myself included, are trying to cut down on the amount of meat they eat as a family. For me, the key to achieving this is having several tried-and-tested meat free recipes at hand to whip up on busy days. Simple swaps can really make a big difference.
Feeding a family, all of whom have different tastes and preferences can be tough. But these Quorn Taco Cups are sure to be a hit with both adults and kids alike. Made with Quorn mince, they are a really nutritious alternative to traditional chilli and are so quick and easy to make.
High in protein and low in saturated fat, Quorn mince makes it so easy to swap your favourite family meals for a meat free version.
The first step in making these Quorn Taco Cups is to cut out round shapes from flour tortilla wraps and gently press them into a muffin tin. These are baked in the oven for 10 minutes which gives a delicious crispy cup in which to put our Quorn chilli.
Next up is the chilli itself which is made by frying onion, garlic, taco spices and Quorn mince in a frying pan. The great thing about Quorn mince is that it can be cooked from frozen so there’s no need to remember to take it out of the freezer to defrost earlier in the day.
The chilli is then added to the taco cups and garnished with toppings such as grated cheese, peppers, spring onions and sour cream.
These Taco Cups are best eaten immediately after cooking. I serve them with some side salad but they would also be delicious with boiled rice or stir fried green veg.
