Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ red onion, sliced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 350g diced lamb leg
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed

For the guacamole 

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • ½ finely chopped red onion
  • small bunch of chopped fresh coriander

To serve

  • tortillas

Method

  1. Put a large frying pan over a medium-high heat and add the olive oil, red onion and cumin. Gently fry for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, then add the chunks of lamb leg, paprika, the lime juice and garlic. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or so until the lamb is cooked but still a bit pink inside. Set aside to rest while you make the guacamole.
