6. Add the onion, tomato and coriander to the avocado. Squeeze in the lime’s juice and add the olive oil. Mix the ingredients together to form a thick paste. Season with Tabasco, salt and pepper to taste.
7. Before serving, warm the mince back in the pan and gently warm the taco shells in an oven according to the package.
