  1. Step 1

    Heat a large, deep non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the mushroom mince and cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until tender. Add the spice mix and cook, stirring, for 2-3 mins or until pan juices have reduced and almost evaporated. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir in the chipotle sauce, tomato paste and beans. Cook for a further 2-3 mins or until the mixture is heated through.
  2. Step 2

    Heat the taco shells following packet directions.
  3. Step 3

    Divide taco shells among serving plates. Fill taco shells with mushroom mince mixture. Top with lettuce, tomato, cheese, avocado and chilli, if using. Sprinkle with coriander and serve with lime wedges.
