Finely chop the tomatoes. Roughly chop the coriander. Finely chop the brown onion. Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Shred the cos lettuce. Grate the carrot (unpeeled). Grate the Cheddar cheese.


In a medium bowl, combine the tomato and coriander. Season with salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil and toss to combine.


Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the brown onion and carrot and cook for 3-4 minutes or until softened. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the beef mince and cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon, for 4-5 minutes or until browned


Reduce the heat to medium and add the Tex-Mex spice blend, salt and tomato paste to the beef and cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant. Add the water and simmer for 2 minutes or until thickened.


Heat the mini flour tortillas in a sandwich press or on a plate in the microwave for 10 second bursts, or until warmed through.


Take everything to the table. Build your tacos by spreading a layer of sour cream on the base of a tortilla. Top with the cos lettuce, Tex-Mex beef, grated Cheddar cheese and tomato salsa.
