“Dos Bros Tacos”

About a year ago my 5 year old nephew started watching the movie Turbo. For those of you that don’t know what this is, it’s a cartoon about a snail that has lightning speed and lives with a Mexican food truck owner. Nevertheless my nephew eventually started speaking Spanish after watching the movie over and over again. Thereafter, every time I was in the kitchen he’d come to me and ask if I’m making tacos. Disappointed in my response he tried again each time he saw me cooking. One day I decided to surprise him with tacos, he loved the process of making the tacos but unfortunately he didn’t want to eat it. Thankfully everyone else did and I hope you all will enjoy it too!


  • 1 kg steak or steak mince (if you’re using a fillet or minute steak cut into cubes)
  • 1 onion sliced into rings
  • 1 large tomato grated
  • 1 habanero chilli sliced ( remove seeds)
  • 1 green chilli sliced (remove seeds)
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 5 peppadews roughly chopped
  • ½ tsp red chilli powder
  • 2 tablespoon peppadew sauce
  • Salt A/R
  • Olive oil A/R
  • Old el Paso Tacos
  • Cheese
  • Old el Paso Salsa
  • lettuce


  1. Heat up some olive oil in a pan and sauté the onion , chillies and cumin until soft
  2. Add the peppadews and steak and let it cook until the water from the steak has evaporated
  3. Add in your tomatoes, red chilli powder, peppadew sauce and salt for taste. Cook until the sauce thickens
  4. Shred your lettuce and grate some cheese and set aside
  5. Warm your tacos up in the oven for about 5 minutes
  6. Serve with salsa and jalapeños


I love to serve my tacos buffet style, that way your guests can enjoy making their own combinations to their liking! It’s a great way to spice up your weekly menu and adds an element of fun to the dinner table.

N.B* this recipes serves 4 people from 12 tacos
