Tacos Shells:
  1. You can not only use Corn flour as it is very hard to roll out tacos from it. In a large Bowl take corn flour, wheat flour, add oil and salt and mix them well. Using around 1 cup water, make a little tight dough.
  2. Meanwhile heat oil to fry tacos.
  3. Make medium balls from dough and roll out into 5-7 inches diameter flat base tacos with a rolling pin.
  4. Put one taco into oil let them half fry and give 'U' shape by tong. Make you flame at low heat. You need to handle by tong until color turn out golden brown. Prepare all others by same.
  1. You need to roughly mash red kidney beans.
  2. Take blanched tomatoes into grinder, and make rough pure of them.
  3. In a pan, heat oil, add minced garlic and onion together. Let cook onions for 2 minutes, add green pepper. Let both cook completely, meanwhile using spatula lightly mash this mixture.
  4. Now add red kidney beans, tomato pure, salt, red chili powder, and sugar. Cook for another 2 minutes.
  5. Switch off flame and at the end add chili sauce.
  1. Take taco shell; fill it with 2-3 tbsp of stuffing. At top garnish with cabbage, capsicum, and shredded cheese. Here I have used mozzarella cheese .You can use cotija cheese or Mexican cheese.
1) You can also do variation in stuffing by adding corn, or any other beans.

2) I have served with salsa. You can serve with cheese deep or tomato ketchup.

3) Sour cream is best substitute for cheese in this recipe.
