These purple cornflour tacos are not only a brightly coloured treat for the eyes but for the taste buds too! They're thin, crunchy, crispy, dense and hold together well. The texture is authentically mexican, a simple but healthy recipe complimented by guacamole, tomato salsa and chilli. Enjoy as a perfect protein snack or add to a meal with rice & beans. There are undertones of many flavours brought together with a squeeze of lime. Traditional made jazzy with a tangy explosion of flavours.

  • 100g Purple Corn Flour
  • 100g Strong Wholemeal Flour
  • 16 Tsp Warm Water
  • Chopped Avocado
  • Tomato Salsa
  • Guacamole
  • Chopped Chilli
  • Red Pepper
  • Squeeze of Lime
  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Stirring Spoon
  • Non Stick Pan
  • Tortilla Press (Optional) 
  • Foil (Optional) 


  1. Firstly, blend the flours together in a large mixing bowl & add the water a teaspoon at a time blending well with a stirring spoon.

  2. Keep adding water working into a smooth thick dough inside the bowl, once it gets thicker use your hands to make sure it is formed into a dough. 

  3. To make the tacos use a heavy bottomed non-stick pan. (Note: you do not need oil)

  4. Break off small lumps of dough just bigger than a cherry tomato for a traditionally Mexican palm sized taco.

  5. Either roll out on floured surface until approx 3 mm thick or use a tortilla press for a more tradtional method. They are not going to be huge and floppy like shop bought ones!

  6. Fry each taco for 5-8 mins on each side unitll starting to brown. (Note: Make as many as you need - this recipes timing amount refers to how long it takes to make 1 taco).

  7. Once cooked, let cool before filling with tomato salsa, peppers, chopped avocado & chopped chilli. 

  8. Squeeze some lime over the top and viola - enjoy!
