Taco seasoning

  • ¼ teaspoon chilli powder (or less, if your not keen on spice)
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • pinch of salt

Taco filling

  • 200 g of shredded BBQ chicken from the supermarket deli
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 4 mini tortillas
  • 300g coleslaw mix (small bag)
  • 1 tbs mayonnaise
  • ½ punnet cherry tomatoes

  • ¼ cup coriander leaves
  • 1 lime
  • 125 g tin of corn
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning
  • 30 g of cheddar cheese (optional)
  • sour cream to serve (optional)


  • Mix the chilli powder, garlic powder, cumin and paprika together in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Empty the coleslaw mix into a bowl and stir through the mayonnaise, season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Chop the cherry tomatoes, and avocado into small pieces, and place in small bowl with coriander leaves. Squeeze the juice of half lime over the top, stir and set aside.
  • Heat a frying pan over medium heat with a teaspoon of olive oil, add chicken then stir through taco seasoning until the chicken is coated. Cook for a few minutes until the chicken is warmed through.
  • Meanwhile, heat the tortillas in the microwave according to the packet directions.
  • Assemble your tacos, layering coleslaw, chicken, and the avocado and tomato mix and then sprinkle with corn and cheese (if using). Serve with sour cream and lime wedges.


  • Want to make this meal even easier? Put all the ingredients on the table and get your family to assemble their own tacos for a real mid week fiesta.
  • If your hungry, there will be plenty of fillings to make an extra taco, or have the leftovers for lunch the next day. Just make sure you have a couple of extra tortillas handy. If your cooking for a bigger family, just double the ingredients.
