SPICY LAMB TACOS

Checklist

  • 3 cups thinly sliced cabbage (from 1 medium head)
  •  1 bunch radishes, sliced into half-moons
  •  1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  •  1/4 cup coriander leaves
  •  3 tablespoons lime juice
  •  Salt (add to taste)
  •  1 pound ground lamb
  •  2 garlic cloves, chopped
  •  1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  •   1/2 to 1 tsp. chilli or paprika powder (spices)
  •  1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  •  8 warm corn tortillas

Toppings such as crumbled queso fresco (fresh Mexican cheese), sour cream, chopped coriander, pickled jalapeños, and lime wedges for squeezing

 How to Make It

Combine cabbage, radishes, cumin, cilantro, and lime juice in a large bowl. Add salt to taste and transfer to a serving bowl.

Sauté lamb, garlic, and oregano in a large frying pan over high heat, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon until very little pink remains, about 5 minutes. Drain excess fat. Add chilli powders, vinegar, and salt to taste and cook, stirring, until most liquid has evaporated, 2 to 3 minutes more. Transfer to a serving bowl.

Set out tortillas and toppings in separate bowls and let everyone make their own tacos.
