Spicy Beef Taco Scotch Eggs

What you need

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 300g beef mince
  • 1 red pepper
  • salt and pepper
  • 1tsp smoked paprika
  • 1tsp oregano
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 100g plain flour
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 100g Doritos, crushed
  • vegetable oil for deep frying

Directions

  1. Heat some water in a saucepan and once boiling, add the eggs. Cook for 5 minutes 30 seconds, then plunge into iced water, to stop the cooking process. Carefully peel the shells off and set aside.
  2. Put the beef mince, pepper, spices, garlic and seasoning in a food processor and blitz until the ingredients are well combined.
  3. Form 4 large balls of the beef mixture then flatten out to around 2cm thick on squares of clingfilm.
  4. Lightly roll the boiled eggs in flour, tap off the excess then place in the centres of the flattened beef mixture.
  5. Use the cling film to help you wrap the chicken mix evenly round the eggs, sealing together with your hands.
  6. Set up a bowl of plain flour, whisked egg and crushed Doritos.
  7. Roll the beef encased eggs in flour, then egg, then Doritos.
  8. Heat vegetable oil for deep frying to around 160c. Submerge the scotch eggs in the oil and fry until the coating is well browned.
