Costa Rican Tacos:
"Tacos Ticos"

What's The Big Idea?

"Ticos" is a slang term for anything or anyone from Costa Rica. These are a great way of using up leftover roast beef, but I guess you could also use chicken or other meat.

Shopping List

Here's the list of what you need:

  • For the tacos:
    • 1lb leftover roast beef, shredded
    • 20 corn taco shells
    • ½ iceberg lettuce, shredded
    • 4 large tomatoes, diced
    • 3-4 tablespoons fresh coriander, chopped
    • 4oz grated cheese
    • Vegetable oil
    • To serve - Tabasco sauce (optional)
  • For the sauce:
    • 4 tablespoons tomato ketchup
    • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
    • 1 teaspoon mustard
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • 2 teaspoons Worcester Sauce

What To Do

  • Heat the oil in a frying pan, and fry the beef for 5 minutes
  • Meanwhile, blend together all the ingredients for the sauce
  • Fill the tacos with the beef and place on plates ready to serve
  • Top with tomato, lettuce, cheese and sauce
  • Serve with optional Tabasco sauce for those who like it hot!
