Minced Meat Tacos

Ever had some tacos and wondered how they are made? They are so simple to make and I show you how to make them with the most basic ingredients that we all often have in the kitchen. I make a simple minced meat that is filled in a shell made out of maize meal and topped with an avocado kachumbari (I guess that would be a mix of salsa and guacamole?).
