Adjust Servings:
500g (1lb) minced (ground) pork or chicken
100g (3.5oz) (1/2 can) chipotle chillies in adobo sauce
1/4 large white cabbage
1 bunch coriander (cilantro)
1 limes
sour cream to serve

Variations

no chipotle chillies in adobo sauce – replace with 2-3 teaspoons smoked paprika, some chopped jalapenos and 2-3 tablespoons tomato puree or ketchup.

vegetarian – cooked lentils or chickpeas + serve with smashed avocado to make it more substantial.

more substantial – serve with smashed avocado or your fave guacamole. A handful of roast cashews or almonds is also lovely.

carb-lovers – corn tortillas or warm flat bread.

dairy-free / paleo – smashed avocado / guac instead of the sour cream. Or try this cashew ‘sour cream’ sauce.

more veg – soften an onion + carrot + celery before browning the meat. And serve with your fave ‘slaw.

no coriander / cilantro – use mint, parsley or basil instead.

We love taco night in our house!

My carb-loving boys adore their white corn tortillas and I love my white cabbage leaves. Everyone happy (including my blood glucose).

Can’t tell you how good it is having crispy fresh leaves to contrast the spicy meat and tangy sour cream. If the thought of cabbage isn’t exciting, these are also great with ice berg lettuce leaves in a Mexican take on Sang Choi Bau.

If you don’t have canned chipotle chillies in adobo sauce, they’re worth tracking down. Or use the substitutes from the variations below.

Greetings Jules. I will try this dish next week (hopefully) and as soon as I do I will come back. Thank you so much!

This was delicious! I sauteed onion & garlic before adding the pork mince & topped it with a drizzle each of salsa, sour cream, sweet potato “queso” & a squeeze of lime. It’s definitely going into the rotation. (We’re not diabetic but I made manicotti the night before, so I thought it might be a good balance to all those carbs!) YUM!

This is a winner! Sauteed onion, celery and garlic before mince (pork) plus lettuce leaves for me. Taste is fantastic. Great for diabetic type 1’s too!
