  • Chop the shallots, chilli (to taste) and chicken or steak strips if using. Fry for a few minutes until shallots soft and meat is cooked.
  • Roughly shred the kale and chop baby corn into 1cm chunks. Add along with drained and rinsed black beans to the frying pan. Season and cook for a few minutes, stirring frequently until corn is soft, but still has a crunch.
  • Heat tortillas in a microwave or in the oven wrapped in tin foil.
  • When sweet potatos are soft, remove from the oven and serve tacos layered with the veggie mix, sweet potatoes, cashew sauce and remaining coriander. It should make 4 soft tacos depending on how big your tortillas are and how full you fill them.
