Gloriously Tacky Taco Fries for a Saturday Night

What more can I say! Sometimes you just crave tacky junk food akin to the type you might buy out of the side of a chipper van at 3am after a few shandys, a guilty little treat. Well these have all the flavour factor & absolutely none of the guilt! This is a Slimming World recipe but it comes in at a mere 11pp or 4pp on F&H a fraction of the damage the real deal might inflict but the exact same taste. Serves 4 Hungry People.  800g Potatoes Chipped

160g Grated Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese 

A 450g Pack of 5% Fat Steak Mince

1 Red Onion Diced

1 Red Pepper Diced

1 Tin of Plum Tomatoes

1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce

1 Beef Stock Cube 

1 tsp Paprika 

1/2 tsp Cumin

1/2 tsp Chilli Powder 

1/2 tsp Garlic Powder 

1/2 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper 

1 tsp Dried Oregano 

1/2 tsp Sweetener 
For the Taco Sauce:

3 tbsp Lighter than Light Mayo

3 tbsp Fat Free Natural Yoghurt 

2 tbsp Tomato Ketchup 

1 Clove Garlic Crushed 

1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper 

3 tbsp Water
Place the chipped Potatoes on a plate & microwave for 3 minutes. Spray with oil & place in a preheated oven at 200c for 25 to 30 minutes or until browned & cooked through. Meanwhile fry the Onion & Red Pepper in a lightly sprayed pot for a few minutes to soften. Add the mince & cook until brown. Add in all the herbs & spices & stir through. Crumble over the stock cube & add the Worcestershire Sauce. Throw in the tinned Tomatoes & chop them through with a sharp knife. Simmer on a low heat for at least 20 minutes (I simmered mine for an hour as it just improves with time) I threw in some chopped fresh Coriander at the end before serving to try & add some sophistication to this culinary masterpiece but let’s face it this is pure take out food so leave it out if you have none knocking around. Mix all the Taco Sauce ingredients together well until smooth. Assemble your chips, top with mince, sauce & cheese & Enjoy because this is pure unadulterated gorgeousness on a plate!
