Quick, easy and so flavorsome – create a Mexican feast the whole family will love. You can make your own tacos too, which is a fun way to get the kids enjoying this meal. Serves 4.

  • 3 cups plain flour

  • 2 tbs vegetable oil

  • 1/2 barbecued chicken

  • juice of 1 lime

  • 2 tbs chopped coriander

  • 2 tomatoes, halved, sliced

  • 1/2 spring onion bunch, sliced

  • assorted fillings – cos lettuce, chopped celery, baby spinach leaves, diced carrots, diced cucumber

  • natural yoghurt, to serve

  • Combine flour and 1 tsp salt in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Pour oil and 250ml water into the centre and mix together until smooth. Knead for 2 minutes until smooth. Cover and rest for 1 hour. 

  • Meanwhile, remove meat from chicken and discard skin and bones. Shred meat and place into a bowl with lime juice and coriander. Cover and set aside. Divide dough into 16 equal portions.

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece out to a 16cm diameter circle. Stack, layered with baking paper. Heat a heavy-based pan over medium-high heat. Place one dough circle into pan and cook for 1 minute. Turn and cook second side for 30 seconds. 

  • Remove from pan, stack on a plate and cover loosely with a clean tea towel. Fill tacos with cos lettuce, chopped celery, tomato, spring onion, baby spinach leaves, diced carrots, diced cucumber, natural yoghurt and chicken. Serve.


To freeze taco dough, at the end of step 3, place dough into a snap-lock bag, remove air and seal. Freeze up to two months. Thank you to woolies for the recipe.
