Published 14.07.2021

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Serves: 2–3 people


  • Future Farm mince (available from Sainsbury’s)
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp mixed pepper
  • Vegan cream cheese
  • Soft shell tacos
  • Fresh coriander

For the Mango Salsa:

  • 1 ripe mango
  • 1 red onion, finely diced
  • Half a red pepper, diced
  • Half an orange pepper, diced
  • 1 large bunch of coriander
  • 1 red chilli
  • 1 green chilli
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Start by chopping up all the mango salsa ingredients, adding them to a bowl and mixing well to combine. Pop in the fridge until later.
  2. Next, grab a skillet, add a splash of oil and fry the Future Mince with the cumin, smoked paprika and pepper for 3-4 mins, or until browned (and smelling amazing!). HLN Top Tip: Add a splash of water if the pan gets too dry.
  3. Lightly flash-fry the taco shells, then load them up with the mango salsa and the mince and top with the cream cheese.
  4. Finally, sprinkle on some fresh coriander, add a squeeze of lime and ENJOY!
