Tips

· For a milder Taco seasoning, omit or reduce the amount of dried chilli flakes and/or peppercorns.
· You can store the Taco seasoning in the pantry for up to 6 months.
· The cooked mince and corn can be placed into freezable containers and frozen. Simply thaw and add remaining ingredients. Perfect for quick, easy lunches!
· Add some cooked brown rice for a fibre-rich dish.
· To grate your own cheddar cheese, grate 10-15 sec/speed 5.
