In this week’s episode, Brits Venetia Falconer and “Topless Baker” are taking on Mexican food.

Homemade Tacos

6 Flour Tortillas
250g Beef Mince
1/2 White Onion
1 Clove of Garlic
75g Sweetcorn
100g Cheddar Cheese
1/2 Can of Black Beans
1/2 Can of Chopped Tomatoes
1 Tbsp Tomato Paste
100ml Beef Stock
1 Tbsp Fajita Seasoning:
(1 Tbsp. Chili Powder, 1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder 1/4 tsp.
Onion Powder, 1/4 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper Flakes,
1/4 tsp. Dried Oregano, 1/2 tsp. Paprika, 1 1/2 tsp.
Ground Cumin, 1 tsp. Sea Salt)
To serve:
Shredded Lettuce
Sour Cream

1.) Fry the onion & garlic until soft, then add the beef mince. Fry until completely browned and then add the seasoning and stir.
2.) Pour in the chopped tomatoes, tomato paste & stock, and reduce on a high heat for 5-10 mins.
3.) Meanwhile, microwave the tortillas for 30s to steam them. Lightly coat them in vegetable oil and drape the tortillas over two bars of your oven rack and bake at 190C degrees until crispy, about 7-10 mins.
4.) Take your hardened taco shell, fill the bottom layer with the beef mixture, top with a sprinkling of sweet corn, black beans, shredded lettuce, salsa, sour cream and shredded cheese.

Refried Bean Burrito With Cashew Sour Cream

400g can of pinto or kidney beans (rinsed and drained)
1tbsp olive oil
1 onion finely chopped
2 garlic cloves
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp of tamari
1 lime juice
1 ripe aovcado
Some chopped romaine lettuce
Tortilla wrap
Fresh cherry tomatoes
For the cashew cream:
125g raw cashew nuts, soaked in water for a minimum of 2 hours
240ml unsweetened soya milk or water
Juice of one small lemon
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
Pinch of salt

1.) Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the onion and garlic for 2 mins. Add the cumin and cook for 1 min more. Tip in the beans, paprika, tamari and a splash of water. Using a potato masher, break the beans down as they warm through to make a rough purée. Squeeze over the lime juice.
2.) Cashew sour cream: simply blitz all the sour cream ingredients in a grinder until smooth and set aside.
3.) Heat both sides of the burrito wrap in a large frying pan until each side has browned a little. Add the beans, avocado, tomatoes, lettuce to the wrap then pour over some salsa and drizzle over the cashew sour cream.

  1. Just some feedback.
    1. please put a shirt on sir
    2. Skip the fake tan next time ma’am
    3. Dental work
    4. Learn about the culture of the food your preparing before making authenticity claims.

    Its nothing personal, just some honest feedback

  2. I'm still waiting on the topless baker to go full nude so that he can distract us from his horrible cooking. English people and cooking don't really go together. Hell even Jamie Oliver had to get out of England to learn how to cook.

  3. I like it – they're funny and cute and they're cooking. Authentic or not, it's better than buying boxed garbage and not caring about what's inside. that's my 2 cents, they're cooking and they care, two fundamental ingredients in any cooking show.

  4. I really, genuinely wanted to like this series because I love Tastemade, but this has to be one of the weakest (and frankly, annoying) series they have so far. Maybe tone down the "drama" next time.

  5. the furthest from anything Mexican, is really disappointing that the entire world think this is a taco, my Mexican heart is broken 💔 please don’t do that again and make a better research of the food before cooking and talking about it #tacoshelliscrap

  6. This series is fun to watch, all the banter is funny.

    The people complaining about this show are the ones no one invites to parties cuz they're the "well actually…" people.

  7. That's TexMex! Not at all traditional Mexican but still delicious. The use of ground beef, yellow cheeses, flour tortillas, lettuce and spice blends heavy on cumin are all hallmarks of TexMex cuisine.

  8. Why does he keep saying traditional / authentic Mexican neither are especially his. Irritated about that. Let's start w the type of tortillas, ground beef nope, seasoning, lettuce, ….. the list goes on. I would love to try hers though she never said it was traditional/authentic.

  9. I'm SHOOK no. Just no. Where is the cilantro? Ground cumin? The "slasa" she made was not even fuckin salsa. Nope. And the fact that the cringy shirtless guy keeps calling his tacos authentic is hurting me. Athunetic tacos aren't made with ground beef or iceburg lettuce he just made a homemade version of a taco Bell taco. I'm mad about it.

  10. Why is it that people tend to summarize all Latino food as specifically Mexican food? It's like calling a Mexican a Spanish person or a Brazilian a Portuguese person.
